Pastor's Message - continued
Jason Rutherford Our Board of Missions has exciting news about our church’s ongoing involvement in partnerships within our denomination as well as with organizations throughout Metrowest. We have increased our outreach to homeless families through Family Promise by renting two of our four Pleasant Street apartments to families just emerging from homelessness. The decision was a careful, well-thought-through one that Missions made in cooperation with our Board of Administration and Finance. Also, the Board of Missions helped feed approximately 125 homeless people on the Boston Common in January through our partnership with Common Cathedral in Boston. During these hard times, our congregation has not forgotten the vital ministry we have with people experiencing unavoidable crises in their lives. Furthermore, we recently partnered with other Metrowest congregations to support financially and logistically a family from Togo, Africa, seeking asylum. You will receive a letter in June with more details and information on ways you can help.

Finally, I want to let you know that one of our long-time members, The Reverend June Cooper, is retiring after 20 years of service as Executive Director of City Mission in Boston. She has extended an invitation (use this link: https://citymissionboston.org/upcoming-events/2021/6/19/virtual-celebration-of-rev-june-cooper) to her home congregation, First Baptist Church in Framingham, to join in a virtual celebration. Please consider attending this momentous event in support of Pastor June.
