Mission & Outreach...

 

We believe it is important to be the body of Christ in our community and around the world. Our Mission: POSSIBLE! Team works to create opportunities to serve others beyond our walls.

March Missions:

LOCAL: "Food Pantry"

Your contribution may be dropped off in the food pantry bin in the Narthex anytime during the month.

GLOBAL: "One Great Hour Of Sharing"

March is the month for our annual OGHS offering, one of the four special mission offerings of the United Church of Christ. It is used in places lacking health and educational resources and/or where disaster has struck.

This year's theme is "Invest in Futures" and is based on 1 Corinthians 3:9 "for we are coworkers in God's service; you are God's field, God's building". Who knows what growth God may bring when we join hands together across distance, traditions and time. Please consider a gift to OGHS.
