1st Nite is a celebration in East Longmeadow on New Year’s Eve. A variety of locations participate in providing safe, family-friendly, alcohol-free activities for different groups:
St. Paul Lutheran Church provides dinner and entertainment for persons with special needs, in a sensory-friendly atmosphere.
St. Mark’s Episcopal Church provides dinner and dancing for adults.
East Longmeadow United Methodist Church provides dinner and activities for families of all ages.
These events are all FREE, due to the generous sponsorship of local businesses.
During the summer, we hold a 4 night Vacation Bible School event that is multi-generational. The children have Bible stories, games, crafts, and other activities, and the adults have a Bible Study based on the passages the children are learning. We gather at 5:30pm for supper together, a break off into groups following. After the activities, we have a snack. VBS is held Monday-Thursday, 5:30pm – 8pm, usually in early July.
