Neighbors in Need offering
Due to the fact that we will be starting our Stewardship Drive on Sunday, October 6th, the congregation will be accepting donations for the United Church of Christ's Neighbors in Need offering on Sunday, September 29th.
"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. One-third of NIN funds support the Council for American Indian Ministry (CAIM). 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 will speak to this topic in Sunday's sermon because the lectionary directs us to Jesus' powerful parable of the rich man and Lazarus. If you would like to join us, please know always, that all are welcome here, whoever you are.
