But the greatest of these is love.” 1 Corinthians 13:13

The Mission Tree: This is a wood post arranged with 12 cans. Each can is designated for a different church mission. This is intended to help keep our missions in the minds of our parishioners and provide a visual, along with the Missions Team poster in the fellowship hall which describes these missions in more detail. We are grateful to Matt Keenan for building this beautiful feature.

Imagine No Malaria

Imagine No Malaria

Imagine No Malaria is an extraordinary effort to eliminate death and suffering from malaria in Africa by 2015. $10 saves one life in Africa. We plan to feature tangible displays for Imagine No Malaria during church service on several occasions, including a short video. We would like to coordinate a fundraiser with the church yard sale this year. We also would like volunteers to go to local business locations to set up a table with information to try to collect money for this program. Visit ImagineNoMalaria.org for more information.

NH Food Bank

NH Food Bank

The New Hampshire Food Bank has served as the only Food Bank in the Granite State since 1984, distributing donated and surplus food to over 400 registered agencies who in turn provide it to over 143,000 different men, women and children each year. A $1 donation provides two meals for the hungry. Based in Manchester, NH, they distribute food and money statewide. In the past the Children’s Sunday School class had a fundraiser for this program during the Christmas holiday sale. The mission team would like to support them in this effort in the coming year. Visit NHFoodBank.org for more information.

Heifer International

Heifer International

Heifer International does so much more than put food in the mouths of hungry people. Heifer helps people feed themselves. We are planning a bike ride fundraiser for this program. Visit Heifer.org for info. Our original goal was $120, which will provide a goat for a needy family. The success of our pie pot-luck enabled the Sunday School children to choose a goat as well as two flocks of hope to donate from our church.

Gift Cards for the Hungry

Gift Cards for the Hungry

Our church will be providing small food gift cards to area locations to be distributed as needed for the local poor. This is a project suggested by a church member to reach out to our community. We are planning a bike ride fundraiser for this program $10 provides one gift card.
