The Community Church of High Falls

Bring a Dime Everytime

The idea for the Bring a Dime Everytime program grew out of President Franklin D. Roosevelt's March of Dimes program. The concept is fairly simple. Imagine a droplet of water on the edge of a leaf plunging into a puddle, trickling into a stream, rushing into a river and eventually ending in an ocean. The Community Church of High Falls is a small country church with a strong awareness of hungry folks all around us.With that in mind we set a jar on the table in the back of the church and, like the droplets of water, one dime at a time, we began filling that jar. In January, 2006, we held our first pot-luck Roller Luncheon. Our church family gathered for food, fun, fellowship and to roll the dimes collected over the course of the year; we found that we had collected 353 dollars worth of dimes! The money collected each year goes to support the Rondout Valley Food Pantry.

Rondout Valley Food Pantry

The Community Church of High Falls also supports the Rondout Valley Food Pantry with donations of non-perishable food and with cash donations, and with our annual Food Drive. The Pantry is now located at 3775 Main St, in Stone Ridge (the old Marbletown Town Hall building), is open from 9-11 am on Tuesdays and Thursdays. For more information, call the Pantry at 845-687-4013. Cindy Angyal and Lee Potter Paashaus are now our Food Pantry representatives.

Help a Friend Fund

The Help a Friend Fund is a locally funded program designed to provide emergency assistance to residents of the High Falls Fire District. Distribution of funds is based on evidence of "need" rather than "want." This is a one-time benefit, not an ongoing assistance program. This fund is administered by representatives from the High Falls Fire Company, the Community Church of High Falls, and the High Falls Civic Association.

Shawl Ministry

Compassion and a love of knitting/crocheting have been combined into a prayerful ministry and spiritual practice which reaches out to those in need of comfort and solace, as well as in celebration and joy. Our Prayer Shawl group at the Community Church of High Falls was formed in April 2006. We join a growing ministry that is blessing both the crafters and the recipients of countless shawls all over this country. Patterns and instructions are available for anyone wishing to join in this ministry.  If you know of a special someone who might benefit by this ministry please be sure to let us know. Donations of yarn or funds to purchase yarn for these shawls are welcomed. The group currently meets on Wednesdays in the Fellowship Hall from 10am-12pm. If you would like more information please contact Lorna (845-687-7091 or Pastor Aaron (845-594-2214)
