Heifer Project International         

The fourth Sunday of the month is designated as "Bucket Sunday" at First Presbyterian Church. Before the Children's Sermon, our young people Kindergarten - 5th grade travel through the Sanctuary with buckets to collect the spare change we have accumulated during the month. Heifer International's mission is to work with communities to end hunger and poverty and care for the Earth. Beginning in 1944, the first cows sent abroad were distributed throughout Europe. More than 67 years later, Heifer has expanded its mission, just as it expanded to 30 types of animal it now provides—from goats, geese and guinea pigs to bees, silkworms and water buffalo. The children of the church have also designated their pledges to Heifer Project International and look forward to the quarterly selection of an animal/s to purchase.
