"Excite Your Life" is the motto of the Greenwich Senior Center, and with a weekly schedule that includes exercise,…More games, language classes, arts and crafts, health forums, line dancing, concerts, daily luncheons and weekend day trips, the community center certainly provides a means to that end. It also offers a number of social services regarding housing, health and energy assistance.
A nutritious hot meal is served daily during the workweek, between noon and 1 pm. Lunch inside is $3, take out is $3.25, and reservations should be made before 1pm the prior day. There are transportation services to and from the center. Some 400 members participate in Greenwich Senior Center events every day.
The parish of the First Congregational Church of Greenwich has existed under various names and at different locations…More for more than 300 years. Led by Interim Senior Pastor Rev. John W. Collins, its roots trace back to 1665 and today's meeting house was dedicated in 1895. The main worship service is held Sunday mornings with church school and child care for toddlers.
Fellowship groups are run for middle school, high school and college age parishioners. Bible study, mission trips, retreats and lectures are scheduled regularly for adults. Ministries, including the Prayer Shawl Ministry, serve the hospital bound, bereaved and others in need.
At almost all First Congregational Church of Greenwich services and events, music is a constant. There are many choirs and opportunities to participate. Special concerts are also held during the holidays.
