Neighbors in Need Special Mission Offering
Sunday, October 7, 2018
Love of Neighbor
The Neighbors in Need offering, which we will receive on October 7, is a special mission offering of the UCC 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 the 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.
Although our special offering will be collected on October 7, we will be happy to receive your donations through the end of October. Donations can be made by sending/bringing a check made out to PACC with “Neighbors in Need” in the memo line or online at www.ucc.org/nin.
