Responsible for ensuring the church’s active participation in the wider world by spreading God’s love to our neighbors in need.
The Salisbury Congregational Church has a covenant partnership with the United Congregational Church of Bridgeport, UCC. The Norman Pfriem Urban Outreach Initiatives is housed and in community partnership with UCC of Bridgeport. Their mission is described as "The Norma F. Pfriem Urban Outreach Initiatives is food-centered, volunteer-powered, community-anchored organization committed to bringing hope to the Park City through service and support programs." Salisbury Congregational Church collects warm clothing/outerwear for this mission, and sponsors monthly (seasonal) "Feel the Warmth" Dinners at the NPUOI, for which members of our church travel to Bridgeport to prepare and serve a meal to those experiencing poverty and homelessness.
