The Board of Directors is pleased to report that annual giving exceeded the budgeted amount for Our Churches Wider Mission (OCWM) again in 2016. The Conference received $242,361 which is more than $13,000 over the budget figure of $229,000.
Special Offerings received were as follows:
- One Great Hour of Sharing $25,606
- Neighbors in Need $13,688 (local SEC churches received $20,000 in grants)
- Strengthen the Church $7,040
- Christmas Fund $10,592
The generosity of the churches and individuals of the Southeast Conference makes ministry possible here in our region and supports the work of the national setting of the UCC through our 10% tithe of OCWM and amounts for special offerings.
