For our Lenten Benevolence our Diaconate has asked that we receive contributions to buy study Bibles for the Market Street Mission in Morristown, NJ, to help spread the faith to those the Mission serves. We will be donating the NIV (New International Version) Study Bible. Each Bible costs $25 and we will be receiving contributions through Easter Sunday. Reverend Scott will then use the proceeds from this benevolence to purchase the Bibles and hand deliver them to the Market Street Mission. Checks may be made payable to Pilgrim Congregational Church. Thank you so much for sharing your faith in such a meaningful way.
