Hands on Missions – January, 2022

PACK HOPE SEEDS from 9:00 AM – 12:00 PM in the double classroom (across from the church office). Roser is scheduled to pack seeds on the 1st and 3rd Wednesday of every month. Hope Seeds is a Christian charitable organization that provides seeds and agricultural support to missionaries and mission teams around the World. This mission empowers the hungry to grow nutritious food which helps heal broken families and communities. By supporting this mission with your donations you have the opportunity to not only share seed for gardens but also share seed for the Gospel. The seed is packaged in small zip-lock packets of ten varieties and species chosen for the climate and culture of the nation they are being sent to free of charge. Plant A Seed! Feed A Soul!

CROP HUNGER WALK ♦ Thanks to everyone that walked or donated! $6,300 was raised and 16 walkers who participated! Check back for the date of next year’s event at Palmetto First United Methodist. Please join us in fun and fellowship to help our sisters and brothers in need both here in Manatee County and around the world—25% of your donation goes to Our Daily Bread and Turning Point. We will carpool from the church at 1:00 PM.  The CROP Walk starts at the Palmetto First United Methodist Church. Walkers cross the Green Bridge into downtown Bradenton and return to the church. To walk and/or donate contact Ginger or the office. Make checks payable to CWS/CROP or Roser Church with Crop Walk on the memo line. CROP stands for Communities Responding to Overcome Poverty. CROP Hunger Walks help to provide food and water, as well as resources that empower people to meet their own needs. From seeds and tools, to wells and water systems, the key is people working together to identify their own development priorities, their strengths and their needs – something CWS has learned through 70 years of working in partnership around the world. Turning Points and Our Daily Bread are local agencies that receive support. The local CROP Walk is usually held in February. Join the Roser Missions Facebook Group and stay in the know!
