Although our focus is on our own neighboring missions, we have, for more than four decades been enthusiastically dedicated to two “away organizations”:
Heifer Project International, whose home base is in Arkansas
H.O.M.E. (Homemakers Organized for More Employment) located in northern Maine, one of the most poverty stricken areas in the USA. Through the years our congregation has purchased hundreds of animals for Heifer. These animals have given hope and income to people in our country, as well as in remote parts of the world. We embraced the Maine mission when we met Sr. Lucy, a Franciscan nun, who organized cottage industries into one entity to promote growth, and created innovative services for an impoverished community. We provide Christmas gifts for the children of H.O.M.E.
On a denominational level, our pledges support
Our Church’s Wider Mission through the United Church of Christ; funds are targeted toward worthy causes at home and abroad. Our congregation rises to the occasions when natural disasters have ravaged our country, and we have given to our denominational
Disaster Relief Fund USA. One hundred percent of every dollar, given to this fund, benefits the victims.
