October 1, 2023

Global Missions invites the congregation to join us on Sunday, October 1 for World Communion Sunday. We will celebrate 10 years of educational partnership with the island of Tasajera, El Salvador; this partnership has contributed to 150 students attending and graduating from high school as well as many from college and/or technical school! Thank you First Congregational Church for supporting this ministry with your friendship, prayers and financial support.

This will be a particularly special World Communion Sunday, as a few days prior we will be welcoming a first time ever delegation from Tasajera! On September 27 we will welcome Leslie Schuld, CIS (Centro de Intercambio y Solidaridad) director and Elsa Solano, Tasajera CIS scholarship recipient and teacher.

Be sure to check out the Kiosk in the church lobby, which has a display of the history of this wonderful Global Ministry and partnership. We have so much to be thankful for!

To make a Special Offering to the Tasajera Scholarship Fund, you can mail a check to the church, payable to FCC with “Tasajera Scholarship Fund” indicated on the check’s memo line, or, click on the link provided below to be directed to FCC’s secure giving page; click on “Give to 2023 General Pledge” to access menu; select “Give to Tasajera Global Mission.” 

The money raised from this global mission project goes directly to scholarship student school supplies, uniforms, transportation costs and school tuition. Without the full support of the congregation this wonderful church mission would not be possible.  If you have further questions please contact Global Mission Committee members, Brent Arnold or Paula Stout.
