Newington church reaches out to Haiti

Many of you have been asking how to make a contribution to disaster relief in Haiti .

We are collecting funds here at the Church of Christ, Congregational in Newington to be funneled through Church World Service, which has partners on the ground already.  Our yearly gifts through One Great Hour of Sharing are at work already through CWS.  Blankets purchased through the yearly blanket offering are also on the way.

We have received news that the mission in Haiti that we have supported and a number of us have visited, the St. Vincent ’s School for Handicapped Children, has been destroyed.  I am sure that we will also want to participate in its rebuilding. This will come later.  First we need to respond to immediate relief needs.

We also need to pray, for a country that was already in desperate straights.

Please make checks payable to Church of Christ , Congregational, marked for Haiti .  Mail to 1075 Main St.Newington 06111, or bring on Sunday morning and put in the offering plate.  Those of you who have Electronic Fund Transfer set up with the church can also use EFT.  Please contact June at jkolzak@newingtonucc.org or 666 4689.

Thank you for your generosity.
