Mission Trip to Help Rebuild Puerto Rico
Nov 30, 2018
ABCCONN, through its Department of Mission and Stewardship, has been engaging in a Puerto Rican Initiative as part of its Relationship Building thrust, following Hurricane Maria. We gave a monetary love offerings at the Annual Gathering on Saturday, April 28 and at Mission and Stewardship Day, Saturday, September 29. We are also sending "love letters" to all 146 Puerto Rican Baptist Churches. ABCCONN member churches are being encouraged to support this love offering of money and letters, which can be sent to Rev. Kevin Butler, Administrative Manager, ABCCONN.
Now we have accepted the challenge given to us by Rev. Mercy Gonzales-Barnes, International Missionary, at Mission and Stewardship Day, to further engage the Puerto Rican initiative; and are announcing the "ABCCONN Disaster Relief Mission Trip to Puerto Rico."
Rev. William ‘Bill’ Huegel, a member of the Department of Mission and Stewardship, will lead a team of volunteers to Puerto Rico in April to help rebuild. If you are interested in being a part of that team, please contact Pastor Bill via email (firstname.lastname@example.org) and plan to be a part of the initial team meeting on Sunday afternoon, Dec. 2.
Dates: March 30 - April 6, 2019. (Sat. To Sat.)
Leader: Bill Huegel, Retired pastor and experienced mission group leader, Wallingford, CT. Contact: email@example.com (email him with any questions)
Work: Construction! Some experience is helpful, but not required.
Information Meeting. Sunday afternoon, Dec. 2, 4:00 - 6:00 pm; First Baptist Church, 20 North Main St., Wallingford, CT
