Buckets were collected at Newman Congregational Church

The Rhode Island Conference may not be large in terms of the number of churches it comprises, but there is nothing small about its level of generosity.

In response to the series of hurricanes and natural disasters this season, the Conference's churches collected 205 clean up buckets and 102 hygiene kits for Church World Service, and donated $6,849 for disaster relief, including $1,249 taken in during the offering at the Autumnal Meeting on Nov. 4th.

Also at the Autumnal Meeting, delegates brought 2,556 pounds of books and 26 pounds of clothing for an Irons Homestead fundraiser. Those items will be turned into cash to offset the cost of recent improvements to the retreat center.
