Current Emphasis

The emphasis for the month of December is the Christmas Fund.

The Mission Emphasis for the month of December is the Christmas Fund (formerly Veterans of the Cross).  The Christmas Fund has been a tangible expression of God’s love and light in the world for over 115 years. One of the four Special Mission Offerings of the United Church of Christ, the Christmas Fund provides UCC congregations and members an opportunity to reach out in compassion to those who have faithfully shepherded our Church and who now find themselves facing worrisome financial needs. The United Church Board for Ministerial Assistance, the charitable arm of the Pension Boards, on behalf of the whole church, passes on this direct support so that these needs may be met and our support may be felt.

Please use the small brown envelopes provided during Sunday services to contribute to this month's emphasis.
