Our first Change for Change collection netted $300.19 to use in support of the missionaries from Ktizo UCC who work in Nicaragua with the villagers. Our next Change for Change collection will be May 29, the 5th Sunday of May.
On Sunday, March 6, our congregation will participate in the One Great Hour of Sharing Collection. This UCC collection supports partners in countries with ministries that fund health, education, and agricultural development, emergency relief, refugee ministries and both international and domestic disaster response. In 2015, the collection supported recovery in Nepal following the April earthquake. This year’s proceeds will be focused on helping refugees and displaced persons. One in every 122 people in the world today is forcibly displaced from their home, seeking refuge either within their national borders or beyond. Through this ministry, we stand in solidarity with the most vulnerable.
In April, we plan a brown bag food collection to donate to the Chandler Christian Center food bank. So, if you are a snowbird, consider this an opportunity to empty your cupboards and donate food rather than store it over the summer in a hot, empty house.
Thank you for your support.
