International Disaster Relief  (click here to donate) or visit http://ucc.org/disaster/

Earthquakes, drought, cyclones, civil conflict and other disasters occur around the world almost daily. Most of these events go unreported in our media. Gifts to the International Disaster Fund enable the UCC to respond more fully to worldwide crises. Other situations in our world also require our attention and support such as violence against women and girls. With your help, the United Church of Christ stands with those in need in such situations. Your undesignated gifts allow the church to respond where most needed, or you may support a specific disaster, for example, by writing "Women and Children in Nigeria" in the comment section.

Donations may also be made out to Wider Church Ministries, and mailed to United Church of Christ, Financial Services, 700 Prospect Avenue, Cleveland, OH 44115. Gifts should be marked for International Disaster Relief, and specific disaster, if desired.

We worship God in Christ Jesus faithfully, engage in Bible study and prayerful contemplation, serve joyfully, and seek justice passionately, with the Holy Spirit as our guide.

We are an Open and Affirming Church: We respect the worth and dignity of all persons who come into our church family regardless of their race, age, gender, nationality, marital standing, economic status, mental or physical challenges, or sexual orientation. We promise to support one another in our personal struggles, to understand and accept differences in one another, and pray to strengthen our love and acceptance.
