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, Carson Center for Human Resources, Community Table, The Kinship Fund, New Beginnings, Samaritan Inn of Westfield, The Salvation Army of Greater Westfield, Westfield Food Bank, and the Crop Walk in Westfield
Nationally we support:
- Back Bay Mission, Our Church’s Wider Mission (OCWM), Maine Seacoast Mission, and Morgan-Scott Project
Internationally we support: Heifer Project, Helo Haiti, World Vision, and YMCA World Service. The World Service Committee carefully reviews mission support each year and makes changes as needed. We also respond when disasters occur here or abroad.
