Church World Service legacy award is received by Mountville church

By Angela Finet

On Feb. 14, Belinda Addae, a representative from Church World Service, presented a Legacy Congregation Award to Mountville (Pa.) Church of the Brethren in recognition of years of support for their kit programs.

In 2010, the Mountville congregation began this partnership by supplying 300 hygiene kits and 300 school kits annually. More recently, they’ve added the creation of 25 to 30 clean-up buckets each year to this important work.

CWS states that “each kit is filled with hope, packed with love, and shared with our neighbors in need at just the right time.” This statement perfectly aligns with the Mountville congregation’s Core Values, and they are grateful for this partnership of compassion.

— Angela Finet serves as pastor for Mountville Church of the Brethren.
