Our church is participating in the One Great Hour of Sharing mission offering as we do each year, and traditionally we have contributed our money directly for the PC(USA)’s work in Disaster Assistance, the Hunger Program, and the Self-Development of People. This year your Mission Committee wants to mix it up a bit, continuing to give to the national program but also directing some of our funds to the Presbyterian Giving Program, and specifically to buy a cow and two families of chickens as part of the Self-Development of People program. If we raise enough funds we’d like to buy even more. “Give a hungry man a fish and you feed him for a day, but if you teach him how to fish, you feed him for a lifetime.”
If you would like to make a donation to the One Great Hour of Sharing this year you can place your contribution in the collection plate, mail a check to the church, or make a contribution through the website. Go to nhpchurch.org, click on the GIVE NOW button, and enter an amount in the Mission Giving box. Thank you.
The Mission Committee
