  • Center Church Blanket Sunday: For many years, Center Church has been helping to keep our neighbors warm by providing blankets to families in the United States and around the world through Church World Service. Last year we raised $908 for blanets. The CWS blanket program provides warmth, hope, and care during cold and trying times. Around the world, disasters force people from their homes, sending them to shelters and refugee camps where a blanket can make a big difference. A gift of just $10 provides a warm blanket to people who are struggling against the cold. If you would like to donate to this project, please send in your check by Sunday, Feb 14th, and make them payable to Center Congregational Church, and label them Blanket Sunday Donation.
