Being 5 for 5 means that our church is a leader, providing support to Our Church’s Wider Mission and the Special Mission Offerings: One Great Hour of Sharing, Strengthen The Church, Neighbors In Need and The Christmas Fund.
Our next 5 for 5 collection will be The Christmas Fund
Provides direct financial assistance to retired and active United Church of Christ authorized ministers and lay employees and their surviving spouses, including pension and health premium supplementation, emergency assistance, and Christmas thank-you checks. A ministry of the Pension Boards, the offering is received annually on the Sunday before Christmas.
We received a grant from RMCUCC! The “In the Mud” Grant we applied for gives BFCC $1,000 to work with La Puente. This means that we will be more involved with helping with this important mission, including planning more trips and providing more assistance for whatever La Puente needs. This fall we replaced a fence behind the shelter. See our photos! See this youtube video for a taste of what La Puente is all about: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G7zRIovIqJg
