The Congregational Life Ministry Team's primary purpose is to plan, support, and maintain the close fellowship and social contacts within the congregation. This team  oversees the Sunday coffee hour and provides receptions for baptisms, professions of faith, and funerals. The team plans special social events like the Yankee Swap at Christmas, Lenten Soup Luncheons, Easter Brunch, and the Annual Summer Picnic. Other ministries which this team overseas include the ministry to seniors, and the prayer chain and prayer shawl ministry. The team has sponsored many fun events in past years such as trips to the Yard Goats, movie nights, trips to the Goodspeed Opera House and our famous Chili Cook-off. 
Everyone had a wonderful time at this year's Yankee Swap in January 2023.  Here is a video of a portion of that event:
