The Christmas Fund provides direct financial assistance in situations of critical need to individual UCC clergy & lay employees, while preserving the dignity of those who receive the aid. Vital ministries include pension supplementation, health premium supplementation, emergency grants, and Christmas “thank you” checks to low-income retirees. 2011 UCC donations totaled $1,536,460 to assist nearly 1,600 individuals.
Make checks payable to Bethel-Bethany UCC and indicate “Christmas Fund.”
A limited supply of Christmas Fund envelopes are at the back of church. Place your offering in the collection plate or mail to the church office throughout December.
