Mission work is an important facet of the Roslindale Congregational Church. The church and its members take an active role in supporting a number of on-going missions.
Past Missions projects:
Our “Welcome Baby” event, sponsored by the Missions Team, was held on March 4. We donated baby and family gifts as well as a check to the Family Nurturing Center. The Family Nurturing Center is a community-based non-profit whose mission is to work with others to build nurturing communities where children are cherished, families are supported, and healthy human development is promoted by all.
The church also sponsors Overlook Farm in Rutland, MA and the Heifer International organization. Overlook Farm is a 270 acre working farm, which educates the public about world hunger, poverty and solutions through animal agriculture.
The Roslindale Congregational Church supports the local neighborhoods with a food pantry. Donations of food are gathered, organized and distributed to individuals and families in the Roslindale area. For more information, click on Food Pantry.
In 2010, the church also participated in a fundraiser for Haiti following the earthquake. Donations were sent through the United Church of Christ’s Our Church’s Wider Mission.
