OCWM

 

OCWM stands for “Our Church’s Wider Mission.” This is one way that we support the ministries of the United Church of Christ in its association, conference and national settings. We are committed to keeping covenant with all of the expressions of the UCC, and are grateful for the opportunity to give.

In addition to providing basic support through OCWM, we participate in all four of the UCC’s special mission offerings, making us a “5-for-5″ congregation.

One Great Hour of Sharing ~ goes to international partners in more than 80 countries, supporting health, education, refugee, agricultural and emergency relief initiatives, including natural disasters. 

Strengthen the Church ~ grows the future of the UCC by funding new church starts, invigorating existing congregations, nurturing lay and pastoral leadership, building youth and young adult ministries, and supporting the God is Still Speaking ministry.

Neighbors in Need ~ supports ministries of justice and compassion throughout the United States and Puerto Rico. This offering supports the Council on American Indian Ministries and the Justice and Witness Ministries of the UCC.

The Christmas Fund ~ provides financial aid to retired and active ministers and their surviving spouses and children who face overwhelming financial need.
