Our Wider World Commitment
During the months of May and June, members of our church family celebrate the special men and women who have played important roles in their lives – mothers, fathers, grandparents, uncles, aunts, mentors – through specific donations to be directed to the Church World Service. Blankets+ Program. Our selections vary from year to year.
For the past several years, our PIUCC Women’s Group has sponsored a child through the Child Sponsorship Program of Global Ministries. Our little girl lives and attends school at the Family Village Farm in Tamil Nadu, India. Letters are sent often with updates on her scholastic and social progress. The decision to sponsor a child was a unanimous one and much thought went in to finding a child who lived in a geographic area to which we might relate. Since our early church founders were leaders in the local agricultural community, it was thought that a rural setting that provided opportunities for education and skill training was a perfect match.
