Now more than ever God is calling on the church to be generous in our support of all in spiritual and material need. Your generosity empowers us to help those who are hurting and to share God's inclusive love with all in our midst.
Neighbors in Need Special Offering
Sunday, October 1st, 2023 Neighbors in Need (NIN) is a special mission offering of the United Church of Christ 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 this 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, a special focus is on environmental justice. May we pay attention to keeping our planet cleaner. We can find ways to individually do our part, as well as, collectively in our communities. Neighbors in Need helps make a ‘Just World for All’ possible. For this to occur we need your support. You can contribute in two ways:
You can write a check payable to Desert Palm UCC and make a note on the memo line for NIN.
Or you can use the ‘Give’ feature on our DPCC website. There will be a ‘Donation’ option and a drop-down box where you can select “Neighbors in Need” (NIN).
Please send in your contributions by October 9th, so we can send our check to the conference in a timely fashion. Thank you. Neighbors in Need needs our support. Please give generously.
