Some of the Board of Mission & Social Action programs our church sponsors and encourages everyone to participate in are:

 

*       Child Reach-at present we are sponsoring 2 children-one in Zimbabwe, Africa and one in Columbia.

*       Angel Tree-during Advent a tree is set up in the sanctuary with paper angels attached. Each angel has the name, age and size of a child. People bring gifts of warm clothing which are delivered to Mainspring House to be delivered to scatter sites in Brockton.

*       The Whitman Food Pantry is an ongoing project with both food and paper goods brought to the church and a monetary collection each November.

*       Bag Lunches for Mainspring House-once a month 100 bag lunches are made and delivered to Mainspring House which are given to the people who must be on their own during this day.

*       Heifer International is an organization in which various animals are given to need families both in America and abroad.

*       SERRV-an ongoing sale of items from A Greater Gift, a non-profit organization. During fellowship time, articles are for sale which are made by people in developing countries.

*       Habitat for Humanity-In the past few years we have helped building and preparing lunches for 3 houses built in Whitman.
