Our Mission Work
World Service has always been an important part of the life of First Church. As we share God’s blessing and gifts we offer tangible and financial support in many different areas. Our support is divided among three categories: local, national and global.
Locally we support:
- The American Red Cross of Greater Westfield, Kamp for Kids Kampership (Carson Center), The Kinship Fund, Lions Eyeglass Drive, New Beginnings, Our House, Salvation Army of Greater Westfield, Samaritan Inn of Westfield, Westfield Community Table & operating costs, Westfield Food Pantry Fill the Pantry Walk, and the Westfield Food Pantry & operating costs.
Nationally we support:
- Back Bay Mission, Our Church’s Wider Mission (OCWM), Maine Seacoast Mission, and Morgan-Scott Project
Internationally we support: Heifer Project and Helo Haiti. The World Service Committee carefully reviews mission support each year and makes changes as needed. We also respond when disasters occur here or abroad.
