Annual Christmas Eve Offering Makes a Difference in the Lives of UCC Clergy

On Christmas Eve, we will be collecting an offering known as the Christmas Fund (formerly known as Veterans of the Cross), which is one of the five offerings of the United Church of Christ that we support.

We have the opportunity to be a part of this ministry that cares for the active and retired clergy and lay employees of the United Church of Christ through our participation in this year’s Christmas Fund offering.

Our gift to the Christmas Fund will not only assist pastors but also provide for the Supplementation of Small Annuities, Supplementation of Health Premiums, Emergency Grants, and provide Christmas “Thank You” Gift Checks next December to low-income retirees.

Our gifts are needed more than ever to help the growing number of retirees whose low-income annuities make it difficult to meet increasing living costs. This is our opportunity to participate in God’s promise of renewal by enabling this ministry of compassion and care.

 

Please consider giving to the Christmas Fund this year to help those who have been there for so many people throughout their lives.
