65 Church Street Market for Mission
A one-day sale for the benefit of
our partner children’s mission in Bayonnais, Haiti Saturday, April 14, 2018 (8:00 am – 1:00 pm)
First Presbyterian Church

OFCB, Organization of the Christian Force of Bayonnais, operates a school, medical clinic and a Christian non-denominational church in the mountains of the Bayonnais region of western Haiti. This area is home to tens of thousands of residents struggling for daily survival. Educational opportunities are limited and the school is a light of hope for the entire region. OFCB partner World of God, along with their donors and partners, provides young people with a quality education that equips them with the skills needed to foster local sustainability, alleviate severe poverty and restore community prosperity. Learn more at www.worldofgod.org.

First Pres Concord will be taking it’s second mission trip to Bayonnais in February of this year. Many of our parishioners are providing school sponsorships for Bayonnais children to attend the OFCB School.
All money raised through this sale will go to support the Bayonnais community.
