The Missions and Service group expresses First Congregational’s commitment to love and serve our neighbor, as Jesus teaches, and to effectively steward the resources entrusted to our care. The church donates 16 percent of its offerings to organizations that help those in need. Missions and Service then donates these funds and encourages in-kind contributions and hands-on work from the congregation.
- Researches the performance of local, national, and international organizations and recommends allocations
- Develops relationships with organizations that can educate the congregation about those in need
- Matches financial contributions made by parishioners
- Assesses the impact of donations
Missions and Service members experience the joy of giving, develop new relationships both within and outside the congregation, and support the church’s mission to serve our neighbors near and far. The Missions and Service group meets on the second Thursday of each month at 10:00 in Fellowship Hall. Church members and friends alike are welcome.
I am grateful to belong to a church that donates 16 percent of its offerings to charitable organizations and takes strong stands on social justice issues.
