Mission Partners

Peace UCC has many local and global mission partners

Our Church's Wider Mission

 

 

 

 

Our Church’s Wider Mission (OCWM) funds the work we do in the Conferences and in the national and global church. OCWM funds are invested in programs, resources, and tools needed to keep local UCC churches strong, effective, and growing.

OCWM helps provide pastoral placement and education for church leaders; worship materials and theological interpretation; resources and training for stewardship and fundraising; and so much more. We are one church—a united and uniting church.  We are the United Church of Christ.

Neighbors in Need (NIN) is a special mission offering of the UCC 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.

 

As God calls our congregations to be "church" in new ways, your gift to Strengthen the Church will:

Plant new churches and awaken new ideas in existing churches

Develop spiritual life in our youth and young adults

Ensure many more will hear the good news that "God is still speaking,"
