Through the generosity of so many, and by God's grace, we raised $1, 446 to support KDEF during Lent 2021. Joy! You can read more about KDEF below.
The ministry and mission of the Second Congregational Church extends beyond our sanctuary and beyond Londonderry to touch the lives of others around the world.
A year ago, Dea and Amber Burrow travelled to Kenya with a group of students and adults from the Guilford, VT UCC Church. Their experience helped to connect us with a country and a people and a particular set of needs. As the Mission Committee discussed possible ways we might use the money you donate through the Lenten Change Challenge, the Kenya Drylands Education Fund which has offices in Manchester, VT and Nanyki, Kenya came to mind. The Kenya Drylands Education Fund strives to improve educational opportunities for the underserved populations in the Drylands of Kenya. You can learn more HERE. Below, you can watch the presentation Dea and Amber Burrow shared with us, and what their experience in Kenya meant to them.
HERE IS HOW YOU CAN HELP! Instead of adding your change (or your checks!) to the coin jar we normally would have in our sanctuary, you can click here to go to our online giving page to make your contribution. You can also write a check and either send it to the church or drop it off at the church office. How much should you donate? You decide, but here are several suggestions:
Twenty five cents for each time you say thank you during the day
10% of your next grocery shopping bill
$1.00/day for each day during Lent
Fifty cents for each glass of clean water you drink each day
THANK YOU !!!! The Mission Committee
