NWA Highlights

Pilgrimage for Children's Justice


Members of the Northwest Association and Conference Minister John Vertigan, engaged in a "Pilgrimage for Children's Justice." Aug. 4-9, 2014. Pastor Wendy Bruner from Zion UCC in South Bend and three members of her congregation took a road trip to Tucson, Ariz. and the US/Mexico border. Justice and Witness Ministries of the United Church of Christ offered partial funding for the trip. Please visit the Pilgrimage blog to read more about their life-changing experiences: http://pilgrimageforchildren.blogspot.com/

Mission Project from Annual Gathering
Pastor Wendy and Associate Conference Minister Rev. Dr. Carrie Call with completed disaster relief buckets. Almost 250 buckets were put together for Church World Service. 15,120 meals were packed at Kids Against Hunger to be sent to people in Haiti. This was from Annual Gathering 2014. Annual Gathering 2015 had a similar project, if we get pictures from that, they will be posted here also.
