Missions and Outreach sponsors Easter Offering

EASTER OFFERING    

March 2016
Dear Church Family,
During the Lenten season, it is the custom of our church to hold a special offering intended to help those in need. This year the Board of Mission and Outreach has chosen the following two recipients:
ONE GREAT HOUR OF SHARING
A ministry of the United Church of Christ, 7 other Christian denominations, and Church World Service, One Great Hour of Sharing donations are at work changing lives locally and in 138 countries around the world. In the United States, this offering provides disaster relief when earthquakes, hurricanes, tornados and other acts of nature hit our soil. Internationally, the funds are used not only for disaster relief, but also for health care, education, and agricultural development and advocacy programs. It is also used to support missionaries and refugees.
REFUGEE IMMIGRATION MINISTRY (NORTHSHORE CLUSTER)
We are partnering with our children and youth to support RIM North Shore Cluster. The offering will go directly to support the current family (Father, Mother, and son) living in Beverly as they work toward rebuilding their lives in the U.S. More information on RIM can be found at www.r-i-m.net )
Your gift will be split between these two organizations unless you specify otherwise on your check. Thank you in advance for your generous offering, which can be made using the Easter envelope provided in your pledge packet or special envelopes in the church pews.
