First Congregational UCC, Cedar Rapids, Iowa is Mission:1
Church members 'evicted' minister, the Rev. Bob David, from his chair in the sanctuary the first Sunday in October as collections for Mission:1 started adding up. Two weeks later, they 'evicted' the choir director from his chair as well. The Sunday School children contributed 33 items, bringing the food donations up the aisle in a toy baby carriage and piling them around the minister's chair. The church exceeded all its Mission :1 goals – collecting more than 1,111 food items, and raising $1,451.93 for the local food bank.
