The First Congregational Church of Kent provides volunteer and/or monetary support to, or is affiliated with, the following organizations:

ARC (Association of Religious Communities) - provides training and resources for the people of  the greater Danbury area.

Children's Rescue Mission  - Teupasenti, Honduras

Founded in 1998 following Hurricane Mitch, CRM provides food and training for the children and young people of Teupasenti, Honduras. In 2002, our church raised $5000 to match a $5000 grant from Heifer Project International to start a farm in conjunction with the mission. In 2003, 7 members of our congregation traveled to Teupasenti to experience the mission, farm and community first hand.  Read about that trip.
