Each Pentecost, we celebrate the church as we have known it, the church we are, and the church that we can be, together. We lean on the story of connecting across difference and listen to the languages of hope spoken in the name of God. Our Annual Meeting this year is focusing on ways that we celebrate “May We All Be One.”
One of the ways we celebrate our connections together is through the Strengthen the Church offering, one of the four special UCC offerings. Through this offering, your congregation contributes to the continued expansion and revitalization of the United Church of Christ. 50 percent of your offering stays within the Southeast Conference, and 50 percent is sent to the national work of strengthening the church universal: through grants towards new church starts, inspiring youth and young adults into leadership, and equipping pastors for ministry in the 21st century.
Please join us in common mission, vision, and purpose by taking up the Strengthen the Church offering on June 9, 2019! Resources can be ordered through UCC Resources and found at www.ucc.org/stc.
