Missions

Mission of the Month

Our focus for September will be Global Ministries.  In our denomination, the UCC, God's mission around the world is carried out jointly by the UCC and the Disciples of Christ. In conjunction with local partners in each region our missionaries work for justice, peace and equality. They work with those in each area who have firsthand knowledge of the community and its needs. In the process they strive to spread the love of Jesus.  There are 190 partners around the world.The appointment of missionaries is made possible by our gifts including Our Church's Wider Mission.

We do our mission in the world with our partners.

CARITAS - is our partner for serving the homeless. We serve as both an intake site and housing site for the women's program. This is our most hands-on opportunity to serve.

** CARITAS is in desperate need for new or clean, gently washed blankets for the women's and family shelters. A box will be placed in the Parlor for any donations. Please see Elisabeth Burnette if you have any questions.
