The Missions and Outreach Board is a busy, active and creative group that looks for and assists with projects of need.
Our focus is three-fold:
- International (e.g., Heifer Project)
- National (e.g., various UCC disaster relief funds)
- Local (Homeless projects, UCC Marshallese Church, Salvation Army “toys for tots” and food bank, Thanksgiving/Christmas food baskets, needed equipment for PreSchool, Thanksgiving tri-church luncheon and Christmas lunch for Congregational Tower residents)
We welcome suggestions from the congregation for groups needing support and consideration.
We do various fund raising throughout the year such as Sunday afternoon at the movies, Ice Cream Social, Garage Sale, Mission table Sunday selling baked goods, plants, etc., and donations from church members.
We are a “5 for 5” UCC church, meaning we promote donations to OCWM< OGHS< Strengthen the Church, Neighbors in Need and the Christmas Fund.
