Because of You, Our Church Changes Lives
November 1-30 Stewardship Campaign “Because of you, Our Church Changes Lives” — this year’s theme points to our call of living generously, offering gratitude to God, and caring for God’s creation. Check the Weekly Gaze the last week of October for Stewardship materials.
Honor someone special in your life. We are very sorry for your loss and pray that their soul and the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. One way to remember your loved one is by making a Memorial gift to honor your loved one. Your gifts can be an essential source of funds to allow FCC Wareham to feed hungry children and provide school supplies, formula, diapers, period supplies, and other necessities to our neighbors far and near. If you would like to direct your family, friends, and colleagues to make gifts to FCC Wareham in memory of your loved one, please make gifts to First Congregational Church of Wareham at: 11 Gibbs Avenue Wareham, MA 02571
Our Church’s Wider Mission Basic Support (OCWM)
OCWM Basic support enables associations, conferences, the national setting, and some of our affiliated partners to continue providing the care and services that are vital to the United Church of Christ. OCWM Basic support is generally given at local churches, where the funds are then sent to their associations and conferences before being forwarded to the national offices in Cleveland. (Individual donors are encouraged to give through their local churches for Our Church’s Wider Mission Basic Support)
Strengthen the Church
Strengthen the Church is a special mission offering to reimagine and build the future of the UCC. Shared at the conference and national levels, STC largely supports youth ministries and full-time leaders for new churches in parts of the country where the UCC does not have a strong presence. It also provides support for existing church’s new initiatives.
One Great Hour of Sharing (OGHS)
One Great Hour of Sharing (OGHS) works with international partners to provide sources of clean water, food, education and health care, small business micro-credit, advocacy and resettlement for refugees and displaced persons and emergency relief and rehabilitation. OGHS also supports domestic and international ministries for disaster preparedness and response.
Neighbors in Need
Neighbors in Need supports ministries of justice and compassion throughout the United States, including the Council for American Indian Ministries (CAIM), justice and advocacy, and direct service projects supported by Justice and Local Church Ministries.
This offering is received on First Sunday of October as part of World Communion Sunday.
The Christmas Fund
