Since circa 1953, Circle 4 has been contributing to mission work for Emmanuel Congregational Church, UCC. We gather the 4th Tuesday of each month from Sept. to April. We combine May and June and Nov. and Dec. and go out to lunch. We have devotions, a business meeting, great refreshments and fellowship in service of our main goal of mission work. We work together with Church World Service and purchase supplies and assemble school kits and hygiene kits - usually around a 100 or more - and also act as the depot for the north country. Then our members deliver all the kits to the larger depot in either Syracuse or Rome the end of April. We have sponsored a student in Haiti the last few years and also support the Heifer project sponsored by our Sunday School. In December we put together a food basket for those in need. We take care of coffee hour for a month every year for the church community. We have a fun time working together and welcome all women.
