Announcements for Upcoming Events & Projects
Sunday, October 1 – Neighbors in Need (NIN) is a special mission offering of the United Church of Christ that supports ministries of justice & compassion throughout the United States. One-third of NIN funds support the Council for American Indian Ministry (CAIM). Two-thirds of this offering is used by the UCC’s Justice and Witness Ministries (JWM) to support a variety of justice
initiatives, advocacy efforts, and direct service projects through
grants. Neighbors in Need grants are awarded to UCC churches and organizations doing justice work in their communities. These grants fund projects whose work ranges from direct service to community organizing & advocacy to address systemic injustice.
