The First Apostolic Gathering of New Milford Inc. is collecting funds to be donated to a Philippines Disaster Relief effort through World Vision.

Priscilla Black, who is the overseer of this mission's work, said First Apostolic is committed to not only being of help to the New Milford community, but as well to critical disaster relief efforts such as the one for the Philippines population.

"We offer a full slate of services to this part of Fairfield County, and to the New Milford community," Black said.

Donations will be accepted at the group's offerings: Sundays at services at 8 and 11 a.m. and at Christian Education Hour at 9:45 a.m.; Wednesday at midweek worship at noon; and the second and fourth Fridays of each month at 6 p.m. at evening prayer group.

The group meets at St. Peter's Masonic Lodge on Aspetuck Avenue.

Donations will also be accepted at Midrocks Home Bible Study group in Ridgefield, which is also facilitated by Black.
