Our World Communion Sunday special offering is one of four special offerings throughout the church year to support national and local ministries within the United Church of Christ. October 4 gifts will be divided evenly between Neighbors in Need and Plymouth UCC Scholarship Fund.
Neighbors in Need (NIN) is a special mission offering of the United Church of Christ that supports ministries of justice and 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 and advocacy to address systemic injustice. This year, special consideration will be given to projects focusing on serving our immigrant neighbors and communities.
The Plymouth UCC Scholarship Fund has been busy the last few years, diminishing it funds. Thanks to you, ½ of our annual special offerings continues to replenish the balance, ready to support members and friends in financial hardship take part in the future opportunities offered by and through Plymouth UCC.
Plymouth Church UCC Worship is experienced on a Zoom Webinar platform, on our Plymouth YouTube Channel and Facebook pages each Sunday as we return to our program year format. Please join us for Worship, then for Coffee Hour ONLINE following on the separate Zoom meeting link.
We look to God for the breaking of oppression and healing in the land. Let us stand together with one voice as we watch, fight, and pray with life prioritized.
