Hands to Work, Hearts to God

Monthly Mission for May

In honor of Mother’s Day, the Mission Board will be collecting donations for blankets for Church World Service. You may purchase a blanket in honor or memory of your Mother, a loved one or a friend, for $10. If you would like your donation to be listed in the Mother’s Day bulletin on May 8, please get the information to church by noon on May 6. Please indicate donor name, name of person being honored, and whether the donation is in honor of, or in memory of, that person. You may send cash or a check payable to First Congregational Church of Dalton (note Missions – Mother’s Day Blankets on envelope and CWS in memo on check) to the church, drop it off at the office, or place in the offering plate on Sunday mornings. You may also e-mail or call Beth O’Connor cgoconnor77@aol.com or 413-347-2370. In 2021, Church World Service provided over 68,000 blankets to refugees and victims of natural disasters and other events across the world. Church World Service shares some inspiring stories about the value of these blankets.

Upcoming Mission Opportunities include a “Let There be Light” campaign for energy-efficient light bulbs. Details to follow.
