music ministry

We celebrate the gifts of music, especially in worship, through a variety of styles and instrumentation. We encourage children and adults to offer their musical talents through; Choir, Instruments, Vocals and Congregational Singing.

We would like to extend an invitation to all singers and musicians (guitar, bass, drums, cello, violin, flute) who might be interested in joining us on Sunday mornings.  Christian music can be stimulating, inspiring, and supportive, and can add so much beauty to the Christian message.  Would you like to be a part of "Music at Mittineague?"  Call the church office at 413-734-1290 and ask for Camy Crick, our Music Director.

Sleeping Mats for the Homeless 

Sleeping Mats for the homeless are being crocheted by several Mittineague Congregational congregants to be presented to the West Springfield Parish Cupboard.  Each 3 x 6 foot mat is made from various colored, clean, plastic grocery bags which are cut into half-inch wide, long strips, attached to one another, and twisted into balls of "yarn" to crochet.  Approximately 500 bags are needed to make one mat which serves as a barrier for added protection and comfort between the ground and an individual's blanket.  Anyone who has the ability to crochet, or would like to learn to crochet, would be helpful in making the mats.  Any other church group or individuals who can assist in collecting grocery bags, cutting of the bags into strips, and making balls of "yarn" would also be helpful.  Anyone interested is asked to contact Ginny Walkwitz at 413-781-6451.
