Strengthen the Church Offering

Event Date:

Money to support clergy who hear the call to start a new church has to come from somewhere. That's where the Strengthen the Church offering comes in. A lot of you may remember Sara Ator who was called to ministry while a member of this congregation, and ordained at First Congregational. Did you know that Rev. Sara has used money from the national portion of the Strengthen the Church offering to start a new church, Land of Sky UCC in Asheville, NC? Sara and her co-pastor, Rev. Amanda Hendler-Voss, lead a thriving congregation that practices love, emphasizes shared leadership, shared resources and the belief that gifts should be given first. Her church was celebrated as UCC's Church of the Month in January for its ability 'to share earthly and spiritual resources'. You can read more about Rev. Sara's church at Land of Sky UCC. 
 
Helping start new churches is just one way that Strengthen the Church offering makes a difference. Fifty percent of this offering stays right here in Wisconsin. Plan now to give generously to the Strengthen the Church offering on June 4th, Pentecost Sunday, when we celebrate the birthday of the Christian church.
