Christmas Special Offering

The Outreach  Commission has chosen 3 organizations to support with this season’s Special Offering — organizations that offer care to the world’s sick and injured as well as the UCC Christmas Fund.  You can support them all  equally, or designate how you’d like your donation to be divided. The offering will be taken on December 10th and 17th during Sunday morning worship.

Riders for Health manages motorcycles, ambulances and other four-wheel vehicles used in the delivery of health care in seven countries across Africa. The organization works with ministries of health, international and non-governmental organizations (NGOs), private-sector organizations, local community-based organizations and religious groups, to improve access to health care for over 21 million people.

Medical Teams International is a Christian global health organization that helps people affected by disaster, conflict and poverty in 70  countries.  They deliver medical and dental care, humanitarian aid and holistic development programs to all people in need.

UCC Christmas Fund provides low-income retired clergy families and widowed spouses with a check at Christmas and supplements their pensions during the year. It provides emergency grants for financial crises for active and retired clergy and helps provide health insurance for disabled clergy and low-income retired clergy.
