Church World Service was founded in 1946 and is a cooperative ministry of 37 Christian denominations and communions, providing sustainable self-help, development, disaster relief, and refugee assistance around the world. Working around the world, they have seen gardens flourishing in barren land. Migrants and refugees finding home even after every door has been closed. Houses standing strong against nature’s worst disasters. That’s the power of your compassion at work when it links to human resilience.

Our congregation is actively involved with the Church World Service Blanket Program. For many years, our church has been helping to keep our neighbors warm by providing blankets to families here in the United States and around the world. What difference can a blanket make? A blanket can provide warmth to a victim of a flood or fire or serve as bedding to a guest in a homeless shelter or be a gift of welcome to a newly arrived refugee or migrant worker. Because of our support of the CWS Blankets Program, Church World Service provides blankets to many organizations and nonprofits. We are grateful for the support of Church World Service as we could not do what we do without your continued generosity and belief in our mission. Our church has Blanket Sunday on Palm Sunday and takes a special offering to help provide blankets and other emergency items to families all around the world.
For only 10 dollars, you can give a blanket that can provide warmth and shelter, comfort and privacy, and healing and hope wherever God’s people may need care. We have so much to share. Share blankets, warmth and comfort with your neighbors.
Our congregation is also actively involved with the Church World Service Kits, which are small packages of supplies assembled and shipped to families and communities in need around the world – especially in the aftermath of disasters such as Hurricane Florence and Hurricane Michael. They are rushing supplies to our neighbors in the wake of these crises around the world. School kits give children in impoverished schools, refugee camps, or other difficult settings some of the basic tools for learning. In the face of natural disasters, violence, or grinding poverty, hygiene kits can mean the difference between sickness and health for struggling families. In September we will be collecting for the School Kits and hygiene Kits.
