Mission of the Month


Mission of the Month:  Neighbors In Need

The September mission is Neighbors in Need, a special mission offering of the UCC that supports ministries of justice and compassion throughout the United States.  One third of this offering goes to the Council for American Indian Ministry (CAIM).  CAIM is the voice for American Indian people in the UCC.  Historically, the forebears of the UCC established and worked with many Indian tribes in the plains and the Midwest.  Today, there are 19 UCC congregations on reservations another American Indian congregation in an urban area.  CAIM supports these churches and their pastors, as well as acting as a resource for members of these churches.

 

The other two thirds of our NIN 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. These include advocating in the areas of civil and human rights, economic justice, global concerns (Yemen, Congo, Syria, Venezuela, Sudan, globalization, international trade and investment, etc.), environmental integrity, peacemaking, and racial justice.  A significant portion of grants awarded go to addressing issues of hunger and poverty.  This year, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the UCC determined that the highest priority for our church was to offer relief where possible.  Monies were gathered from a variety of sources, including the Neighbors in Need fund, and a Covid-19 relief fund was formed.  Throughout its history—from early efforts to abolish slavery to modern campaigns for civil rights and social justice—the UCC has been engaged in these types of ministries.  While there is a deep respect in the UCC for the right of every individual member to form his or her own views on these issues, there has always been a passion across the church to “make things right”—as a testament to our faith in God and our love for God’s creation.
