2015 Christmas Fund for Veterans of the Cross
and the Emergency Fund
In this holy and joyous time of year, our thoughts turn to the birth of our Lord Jesus Christ, the light of the world.
The theme for the 2015 Christmas Fund Offering is
Love Shines Through.
For 113 years, the Christmas Fund for the Veterans of the Cross and the Emergency Fund has been a way in which we, as members of the United Church of Christ and the predecessor denominations, reflect the love of Jesus Christ in the lives of the many women and men who have so faithfully and selflessly served, and who now find themselves facing unforeseen financial crises. See the bulletin insert for more information on the Christmas Fund and Emergency Fund. The offering will be dedicated on Sunday, December 20.
