ANNUAL CROP HUNGER WALK, SATURDAY, OCTOBER 14, 2023 - JOIN THE TEAM OR MAKE A DONATION
Church World Services and Crop Hunger Walks are community-based walk fundraising events held in cities and towns across the United States, created to support the global mission of Church World Service, a faith-based organization transforming communities around the globe through just and sustainable responses to hunger, poverty, displacement and disaster. The 39th Annual Concord Walk is sponsored by the Greater Concord Interfaith Council. After a CROP Hunger Walk ends, 25% of the funds raised is returned to the Interfaith Council to distribute to local hunger programs including Hilda's Food Pantry at Boscawen Congregational.
The Crop Project began in 1947 when farmers were asked to donate food and seed crops to our hungry neighbors in post-World War II Europe and Asia. The first CROP Hunger Walks took place in Bismarck, North Dakota (1969), and York, Pennsylvania (1970). Since then, CROP Hunger Walk events have been held in hundreds of communities, large and small, raising millions of dollars to eradicate hunger and poverty.
Get involved! Hunger is one of the greatest injustices facing our world, but it doesn’t have to be this way. Ending hunger is possible in our lifetime. You can help make it happen. Contact Chris Paull today at 603-520-9196 or firstname.lastname@example.org to participate in this year's walking team and take us one step closer to ending hunger once and for all.

WHAT IS UNBOUND ALL ABOUT? : Jesus offers us love, forgiveness and freedom. But if the enemy can keep you from living in the newness of life Jesus won for you, he will. Stop giving him the chance. Let God free you from:
False identities, distance from God, feeling spiritually stuck
Resentments and bitter wounds that never seem to heal
Learn to recognize the strategies you unknowingly play into that keep you chained to the same old patterns. Receive gentle prayer ministry that will help you take hold of the freedom you have been given in Christ.
The Unbound Freedom In Christ Conference is based on the book UNBOUND by Neal Lozano, available at www.heartofthefather.com or on Amazon. We highly commend this book to you. And please, don't let anything keep you from coming to the Conference.
"Hilda's" Food Pantry is Re-Dedicated
On Sunday, June 12, we gathered to pray and re-dedicate the BCC Food Pantry (Hilda's Pantry) after much-needed attention, repairs and renovations were done. It's simply sparkling and reconfigured for improved use of space and accessibility! May God increase His presence here and bless this ministry done in His name so that it can be the hands and feet of Jesus to the hungry people of Boscawen.
CHURCH RECORDS NOW ONLINE AT THE NEW ENGLAND HISTORICAL GENEALOGICAL SOCIETY
The church loaned our records to the New England Historic Genealogy Society last year. They filmed and digitally copied all the records. One of the digital copies was placed at the Boscawen Historical Society with a second set at church. The NE Historical Geneological Society indexed the records and now will be making them available to their members for genealogical research! Thank you Ron Reed for making this happen! https://dbnews.americanancestors.org/.../boscawen-nh.../
