United Church of Christ

Boynton Beach Congregational Church in Boyton Beach, Fla. is Mission:1.

Since the local food pantry needed food items for its annual Thanksgiving Cornucopia to provide 200 Thanksgiving meals to the needy, the church Mission and Outreach Board substituted boxes of turkey stuffing for cereal in the M:1 food drive.  Church members installed a four by eight foot wall in the Narthex with the exhortation “Let’s Fill This Wall!”, and boxes of turkey stuffing were purchased in advance and made available in the Narthex to donate at $1 per box. In two Sundays, the congregation donated enough to provide 120 boxes on the “Great Wall of Stuffing”, surpassing the 111 boxes goal!
