The 2017 theme for Neighbors in Need (NIN) is “Protect the Sacred: In a Just World, Clean Water is Life.” 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 the 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.
Our NIN offering will be gratefully received on October 1st, when we will also celebrate World Communion Sunday. Envelopes will be available in the pews and in the Sunday bulletin.
