Christmas Mission Offering
HOPE FOR HAITI
BUILDING A HOME FOR A FAMILY
Thru January 1, 2022
Through Compassion International
In August 2021, a devastating 7.2 magnitude earthquake struck Haiti, destroying the homes of over 12,000 children in the Compassion program. The dust has settled, and the media has moved on from the most recent earthquake to strike Haiti, but Compassion and the Haitian church aren’t leaving. We’re called to rebuild as an act of hope and love. And we are excited to have you join us in the story of God’s restorative work among such a resilient people. The United Church of Milton has a goal to raise at least 1500.00 for a home in Haiti.  In fact, we will donate our entire Christmas Eve offering to this mission purpose. Every dollar we raise will go toward rebuilding Compassion-assisted children’s homes that were destroyed or damaged.
Make Checks out to United Church of Milton put Hope for Haiti in the memo.
Mail to The United Church at PO BOX 107 Milton VT 05468.
We will accept donations until January 1, 2022
