Current Emphasis

The emphasis for the month of October is Neighbors in Need.

The Mission Emphasis for the month of October is Neighbors in Need (NIN).  NIN is a special mission offering of the United Church of Christ that supports ministries of justice and compassion throughout the United States. NIN funds support the Council for American Indian Ministry (CAIM) and the UCC's Justice and Witness Ministries (JWM) which supports a variety of justice initiatives, advocacy efforts, and direct service projects through grants. This year, special consideration will be given to projects focusing on serving our immigrant neighbors and communities.

Please consider giving to this very worthwhile Mission emphasis using the small brown envelopes provided during Sunday Services.

 Thank you from the Missions Committee.
