For 113 years, the Christmas Fund for the Veterans of the Cross, our Emergency Fund, has been a leading light in the mission of United Church of Christ. This fund provides us with a means to directly assist those who have so faithfully and selflessly served and now find themselves facing unexpected financial needs. The Pension Boards’ Ministerial Assistance program provides, on behalf of the whole Church, Pension Supplementation, Health Premium Supplementation, Emergency Grants, and Christmas “Thank You” Gift Checks to individuals and families in need.
The theme of the 2015 Christmas Fund Offering is “Love Shines Through”. We at Island United Church will be taking this special offering on Sunday, December 20. On behalf of the hundreds of clergy and lay employees and their families whose lives were touched by your support in the past, the Pension Boards of UCC offer their sincere thanks for your generosity and love.
