Neighbors in Need (NIN)

As we move into November, a month where we give thanks for all that God has blessed us with in our lives, the Mission's Committee moves its focus toward helping those in need. Through the Neighbors in Need (NIN) offering, the UCC expresses a common commitment to justice and compassion throughout the United States and Puerto Rico.

Mission: 1

Nov. 1-11, 2011....ONE UNITED CHURCH on a shared mission for 11 powerful days to feed the hungry and confront food-related injustice. The United Church of Christ will collect more than 1 MILLION ITEMS OF HEALTHY FOOD and other household items for local food banks, pantries and outreach services.

The Mission's Committee is using the month of November to raise awareness about Neighbors in Need and Mission: 1, culminating in a special missions offering during the month. Keep an eye out for literature in the Weekly Church Bulletin to see how you can help.
