The Justice & Witness Ministry Council is requesting nominations for the 2014 Haystack Awards.
The Haystack Award of the Massachusetts Conference UCC was created to encourage participation in charitable and social justice ministry. Churches are inspired to engage in local and global mission in a variety of ways. Our aim is to recognize these exemplary initiatives currently underway in churches throughout the Conference, express appreciation, and offer incentives for new initiatives. Any individual, group or institution affiliated with the Massachusetts Conference, UCC is eligible for consideration.
The Council is also encouraging nominations for a youth award.
The application deadline is May 9. Awards will be presented at the 215th Annual Meeting of the Massachusetts Conference in Sturbridge, following a luncheon on Saturday, June 14.
