On Sunday, December 9th, we will hold a new kind of Alternative Gift Market. This year our gifts will be sent to our own United Church of Christ Global Ministries for life-changing work around the world.
Global Ministries is a joint ministry of the UCC and the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ). They respond in bold ways to the challenges of poverty and injustice throughout the world by partnering with churches and programs in over 80 countries. Our gifts help them tackle some of the world’s toughest problems.
The table will be set up in the Parlor after worship so that you will be to learn more about Giving Themes, the work being done by Global Ministries, and how to make a donation in honor of a loved one. There are gift cards available to let them know about your donation. Payments are due to the church office by December 31, 2018. Please make your check payable to Lakewood Congregational Church with ‘Global Ministries’ in the memo line.
