Christmas Fund is a Special Mission Offering of the UCC. Donations are
used to provide assistance to retired UCC clergy and lay church
employees. During 2012 approximately 900 persons were helped. Much of
the money is used to provide monthly pension supplementation for low
income retirees to meet needs for food, utilities, living and/ or
medical expenses. Others received help to pay for quarterly health
premiums. Emergency grants were provided to 45 active or retired clergy/
lay employees to assist with unexpected large medical expenses or home
damage resulting from natural disasters. Finally Christmas Thank You
gifts were given to 500 retirees to remind them that the Church is
grateful for their service.
are invited to give to this fund if you wish. Please note this is where
you would like your gift to go and the office will send it on.

Feeding the Homeless
Sunday is the last opportunity to sign up to contribute a dish to the
Good Samaritan Haven Dinner which is planned for next Sunday, the 26th.
The shelter is experiencing more people in need of their services so we
are asked to bring plenty of food for them to serve. Imagine all the
people being warm and well fed and imagine that you are part of that
circle of care. It can warm your heart while warming their tummies. Many
thanks to all who contribute to this wonderful ministry!!
