Global Missions We Support
United Church of Christ Special Mission Offerings sponsor vital ministries that bring hope to people in the U.S. and around the world. The UCC has identified four areas where critical human needs exist:
• in places lacking health and educational resources and/or where disaster has struck;
• within systems of injustice which oppress daily life and opportunity;
• in the lives of church leaders without sufficient resources to live with dignity;
• in the nurture of youth and congregations just beginning their lives of faith. Peace UCC is a 5 for 5 church meaning that our church provides support to Our Church’s Wider Mission and the Special Mission Offerings:
Channels resources for international programs in health, education and agricultural development, emergency relief, refugee ministries, and both international and domestic disaster response.
Supports ministries of justice and compassion throughout the United States through a variety of justice initiatives, advocacy efforts, and direct service projects.
Supports the expansion of ministry and growth of local congregations by growing new churches and awakening new ideas in existing churches that develop the spiritual life in our youth and young adults.
Funds provide direct financial support to those who serve the church and are facing financial difficulties. Active and retired clergy, lay employees, and their surviving spouses
