The Mission’s Committee held its monthly meeting on Sunday, March 12th, 2017.
Monetary donations were made to MACUCC ( Massachusetts Conference of the United Church of Christ), Pembroke Food Pantry, Seafarer Friends, and South Shore Hospice. We continue to be most appreciative of your generous support that allows us to offer assistance to these worthy organizations.
Our campaign for Church World Service ( CWS) One Great Hour of Sharing will continue throughout the month of March. Offering envelopes are in the church pews and we appreciate your contributions. Your donations to this cause enables the UCC to reach people and communities affected by disaster, displacement or poverty.
We will also be collecting items for Church World Service Health Kits. A collection box has been set up in the foyer leading into the Fellowship Hall. Our goal is to send off 100 kits by May 2nd. The supplies needed for the health kits are:
* Hand towels measuring approximately 15”x28” to 16”x32” ( no fingertip, bath, dishtowel of micro-fiber)
* Wide – tooth combs
* Finger nail or toe nail clippers
* Bath size bars of soap in wrappers
* Toothbrushes in the package
* Standard size bandaids
Once again we thank you for your generous support and contributions.
