SUNDAY, FEB. 12 — Due to today’s winter storm, First Church will be closed this evening, with no choir rehearsals or other activities held.
Feeding God's Starving Children Hungry in Body and Spirit
We invite you to join us in being a part of the world hunger solution through Feed My Starving Children, a non-profit Christian organization committed to nourishing God’s children who are hungry in body and spirit.
Food-packing events in Berlin are generally held on a Friday and Saturday, with two-hour time slots, one of which is specially reserved for those from First Church who wish to help. Watch for details on the next food-packing event as well as pre-event fundraisers, or call Joyce McNamara with any questions, at 860.436.2923.

FMSC’s approach is simple: Children and adults hand-pack meals specifically formulated for malnourished children, and then the meals are shipped to nearly 70 countries around the world. Each meal costs only 22 cents. The local project takes place in Berlin, CT.
Beyond the physical nourishment, there is full, continued contact, commitment and ministry with and to the children (and families) being served.
Many of the children in the areas we serve (including pregnant teens) are not educated, but their moms send them to schools in our program so that they will get fed—making education an added benefit. The transformation of so many children extends also to future generations. This program is a key to ending the poverty cycle.
