We’re 5 for 5!

Being 5 for 5 is one sign of congregational vitality in UCC churches that fully support Our Church’s Wider Mission. 5 for 5 churches give to Basic Support and all four Special Mission Offerings.

Special Mission Offerings are: Neighbors in Need on World Communion Sunday, The Christmas Fund on the Fourth Sunday of Advent, One Great Hour of Sharing on the Fourth Sunday in Lent, and Strengthen the Church on Pentecost Sunday.

  • Our Church's Wider Mission, which offers basic support to the Maine Conference of the United Church of Christ and the National Office. In 2020, our church donated $6000.

  • Neighbors in Need, which expresses the UCC's commitment to justice and compassion in the United States and Puerto Rico. This offering is collected each October.

  • Christmas Fund, which helps provide pension and health insurance for low-income retired church workers, as well as emergency assistance to clergy families in need. This offering is taken each December. 

  • One Great Hour of Sharing, which offers help, hope, and life by supporting partners in more than 70 countries with ministries that fund development projects, feed victims of famine, provide services for displaced people, and respond to natural disasters. This offering is collected each March.

  • Strengthen the Church, which supports UCC church growth and leadership development at both local and national levels. This offering is collected each May.
