Share the Care is forming at the church. This is a committee much like the previous
“Pastoral Care Committee”, but new and improved to help accommodate
everyone’s busy life. To get the group started, we are looking for people
who would be willing to provide a meal or transportation or send/write cards
for our church members when the need arises. Please contact Julie Crane

Our church has two Facebook accounts. One is a public Facebook page which can be seen by anyone. We use this account to provide information about our church services, ministries, and events for members and others.
In our second account, the content is not available for everyone in the public to view. The congregation uses it to share joys and concerns, pictures, poems, something that inspires them, etc. Members of the group can read, post, and comment, and no one outside of the group can see the posts and comments. This is known on Facebook as a closed group.
To find either the church Facebook page or the closed group, you can log into your Facebook account and in the search bar type in either Congregational Church of Batavia or Members and Friends of the CCOB. This should bring you to a list of suggestions. Click on your choice and then you should be able to “like” or “join.”
