A Message from the Mission Department:
Mission: 1 Letter Writing - Update - We hope your congregation will engage in all three aspects of Mission: 1, including writing letters to Congress in support of programs that reduce hunger and poverty. We plan to have a delegation consisting of the Conference Minister and representatives of the Mission Department hand-deliver the letters to the Vermont offices of Senators Leahy and Sanders and Congressman Welch. So, no need to send the letters. Date the letters between November 1 and 11. The important thing is to get the letters written and to their destination!
