UCC's 5 for 5

  • One Great Hour of Sharing

  • Strengthen The Church

  • Neighbors In Need

  • The Christmas Fund

  • Our Church's Wider Mission

United Church of Christ Special Mission Offerings (SMOs) exist to allow congregations and individuals to meet people at points of critical need in their lives. Though many options exist for direct, individual support of these needs, the SMOs allow a common witness and make a collective positive impact. 


Our church has identified four areas where these critical human needs exist: 

  • in places lacking health and educational resources and/or where disaster has struck; 

  • within systems of injustice which oppress daily life and opportunity; 

  • in the lives of church leaders without sufficient resources to live with dignity; 

  • in the nurture of youth and congregations just beginning their lives of faith.  

We believe these SMOs collectively serve to lift people closer to the abundance and wholeness to which Jesus Christ has called us to work together to bring about.
