CROWN POINT - The First Congregational Church of Crown Point will hold a special collection to support relief efforts in Haiti.
The congregation recently voted to make two separate donations of council funds to Samaritan's Purse, a lead non-profit agency on the front lines of the work in Haiti following the earthquake, as well as hold an ongoing special collection for anyone who would like to send funds to relieve the suffering.
Anyone wishing to donate is invited to place it in the basket in the church or send a donation clearly marked as Samaritan's Purse Donation to Associate Pastor Gregg L Trask at 31 Mariner Way, Crown Point 12928. People may also give donations to any church member.
Samaritan's Purse is a non-denominational evangelical Christian organization providing spiritual and physical aid to hurting people around the world. Since 1970, Samaritan's Purse has helped meet needs of people who are victims of war, poverty, natural disasters, disease and famine.
First Congregational Church of Crown Point invites the community to it at 9:30 a.m. Sunday for worship. This week's meditation will be given by Trask.
