Community Outreach

In addition to our weekly food pantry on Tuesday mornings, Windsor Presbyterian Church offers or hosts a variety of opportunities for community members to participate:

Clothes Closet

At the back of the main church building is a small room containing clothes, shoes, and soft goods for anyone  in need. We’re  happy to accept  donations of  gently-used, clean items and anyone is welcome to take what they or their family needs.  The Clothes Closet is open at 8:30 am on Tuesdays along with our Food Pantry and some Saturday afternoons.

Children’s Books

In the rear of the sanctuary a  bookshelf holds children’s books that we offer free to the community.  Children who read,  and who are read to,  develop necessary social skills to help them interact and engage further in life.  The skill of reading also opens the way for the development of other important skills such as the gift of imagination. You are invited to donate any children’s literature to our bookshelf,  and anyone is welcome to take books for the children in their lives.

Twelve Step Groups

Windsor Presbyterian Church is the venue for several Twelve Step meetings.  A twelve-step program is a set of guiding principles (accepted by members as  “spiritual principles,”  based on the approved literature) outlining a course of action for recovery from addiction, compulsion, or other behavioral problems.

Originally proposed by Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) as a method of recovery from alcoholism, the Twelve Steps were first published in the book Alcoholics Anonymous: The Story of How More Than One Hundred Men Have Recovered from Alcoholism in 1939. The method was then adapted and became the foundation of other twelve-step programs.

St. Josephs Mobile Health Clinic

Every Tuesday from 8:30am-11:00am, the St. Joseph Mobile Health Clinic is on-site at Windsor Presbyterian Church. The Clinic serves children and adults without health insurance.  St. Joseph Mobile Health Clinic transcends language, culture and access to care barriers by bringing healthcare directly to those who need it most.

Speaking Grief Support Group (on hiatus — call or contact us if you need help)

Windsor Presbyterian Church is hosting an ongoing grief support group for the church and community to find and offer support through different stages and types of grief.

We meet at 251 Windsor River Road in Windsor, near the Windsor Town Green, on the 4th Thursday of each month from 10 am – 11:30 am. The group has a spiritual component, because grief involves our whole being, but people of any faith tradition or none at all are welcomed.
