April Loose Coin

April is the month for Union’s Justice and Witness Peace Offering Loose coins collected during worship this month will be given to the MN UCC Conference Justice and Witness Team. This is a ministry of our UCC Conference dedicated to encouraging congregations to “seek peace and pursue it” with a variety of programs and initiatives. Congregations apply to the J&W Team for funds to help them carry out their work. This team also recognizes churches who are making progress to become Accessible to All or Earthwise congregations in their practices and programming. More information is available on the Conference website. When a church takes in a Justice and Witness Offering, 25% is for the congregation and its local justice initiatives and 75% spreads justice throughout the Conference by empowering others with justice and mission grants of up to $2500.
Applications and governing policies are at the Minnesota Conference UCC website

Your support of the Conference Peace Offering ensures the continued funding of your Justice and Witness Team’s Peace Grant program. Peace Grants multiply the power of our justice and witness.
