In The Community


Steeple Chase

Several members of the church are involved as riders and volunteers in the annual steeple chase bike tour.

Steeple Chase is 100 mile, 62.5 (Metric Century), 50 mile, 35 mile, 20 and 10 mile Bike Tours through scenic Northeastern Connecticut’s Quiet Corner. Many rest stops at historic churches with all kinds of food prepared by WAIM’s faith communities.

The Steeple Chase is a fundraiser for two local non-profit social service agencies, Windham Area Interfaith Ministry and Perception Programs, that help people when they need it most. The Windham Area Interfaith Ministry, is comprised of 39 faith communities, provides fuel assistance, clothing, and furniture to area needy families. Perception Programs offers treatment, case management, education and housing to people with substance abuse and co-occurring disorders, adults involved in the criminal justice system, and people living with AIDS.
