Sun. Oct. 7th: Neighbors in Need/Giving Sunday

Brookmeade is a five for five church, giving to all five of the national U.C.C.’s offerings. The Neighbors in Need offering, which we will receive on October 7th supports the UCC’s ministries of justice and compassion. Two-thirds of the offering is used by the UCC’s Justice and Witness Ministries to fund a wide array of local and national justice initiatives, advocacy efforts and direct service projects. It does strong advocacy work on issues such as the federal budget, voting rights, immigration, health care, hate crimes, civil liberties and environmental justice. One third of the offering supports the UCC’s Council for Americn Indian Ministries (CAIM). If scripture commands, “love your neighbors as you love yourself,” help make a just world possible by your support. Special envelopes will be in the bulletin on October 7th .
On October 7th we will also be collecting canned goods and cash for our monthly COW (Contribute Our Wealth) Offering as well as hearing a short presentation from Rachel at Raise the Roof Academy. Last year Brookmeade sponsored the education of children in Uganda through this organization.
