Neighbors in Need Special offering
Coming October 6, 2019
Neighbors in Need (NIN) is a special mission offering of the United Church of Christ that supports ministries of justice and compassion throughout the United States. The 2019 theme for the NIN offering is "Love of Children."
One-third of NIN funds support the Council for American Indian Ministry (CAIM), and Two-thirds of this offering is used by the UCC's Justice and Witness Ministries (JWM) to support a variety of justice initiatives, advocacy efforts, and direct service projects through grants. Neighbors in Need grants are awarded to UCC churches and organizations doing justice work in their communities. These grants fund projects whose work ranges from direct service to community organizing and advocacy to address systemic injustice.
This year, special consideration will be given to projects focusing on serving our immigrant neighbors and communities..
We Are 5 for 5!
UCC has once again recognized our church being 5 for 5! This means we participate in all of the special UCC offerings throughout the year (Neighbors in Need, One Great Hour of Sharing, Strengthen the Church, Our Church’s Wider Mission, & the Christmas Fund). Our church was mentioned at this years Annual Gathering. We are small, but we are mighty!
