Every Tuesday, UMC of Westport and Weston is encouraging our congregation to support local restaurants by getting their dinner with curbside take-out or delivery. We are featuring a different restaurant each week. Let them know we’re supporting them; tell them you’re with their friends from the United Methodist Church. And of course, please support all the local restaurants in our community throughout the week when you elect to “take out.”
If you’d like to be added to the church’s email list and receive information about Take-Out Tuesdays, please let us know! firstname.lastname@example.org
