The committee would like to inform the congregation of the projects they have scheduled for the coming year. Some collections benefit the national UCC organization, some support local concerns and at least one “Change for Change” collection will benefit the international community. The Change for Change collections will be taken on the months that have five Sundays and be used to support a variety of missions to be announced prior to the fifth Sunday.
The collection of pill bottles (size that a 30 day supply of meds come in with the label removed) for Paz de Cristo in Mesa and food for the Chandler Christian Center are ongoing collections that may be brought to the church any Sunday and deposited at the front door.
