Our congregation participates in four special offerings of the UCC each year. Included are:
One Great Hour of Sharing (OGHS) – This special offering supports programs internationally for building sustainable communities, emergency relief and rehabilitation, and advocacy and resettlement for uprooted persons. OGHS also supports ministries both domestically and internationally for disaster preparedness and response.
The Christmas Fund (formerly Veterans of the Cross) – This offering is an expression of love and thanks to those who serve the United Church of Christ. This offering helps provde pension and health premium supplementation to low-income retirees, emergency assistance to clergy families in need and Christmas gift checks to hundreds of annuitants.
Neighbors in Need (NIN) – This offering supports ministries of justice and compassion throughout the U.S. and Puerto Rico.
Strengthen the Church – This offering supports leadership for new church starts and revitalizing congregations, leadership development for the whole church, and programs for youth and young adults.
