The Christmas Fund for the Veterans of the Cross and the Emergency Fund
“Overwhelmed with joy!” Matthew 2:10
The Christmas Fund has been caring for active and retired clergy and lay employees of the United Church of Christ for over 100 years, providing emergency grants, supplementation of small annuities and health premiums, and Christmas “Thank You” gift checks each December to our lower-income retirees.
United Church of Christ congregations and members have blessed the Christmas Fund with their generosity for many years. This year, your care and compassion will be especially appreciated by those servants of the church who are facing a time of need. Thank you!
Brookmeade will be collecting this offering on December 18th, but feel free to send a check or donate to the Christmas Fund online through Tithe.ly all during the month of December! Please specify your check memo for Christmas Fund and choose Christmas Fund on the drop-down menu on Tithe.ly to make sure your gift gets designated to the correct place.
