All people shall give as they are able, according to the blessings which God has given them.1
In a world filled with human injustice we are called by God to seek a better world.
Neighbors In Need expresses the United Church of Christ's commitment to ministries of justice and compassion in the United States and Puerto Rico, as we speak prophetically to those in power and advocate for the voiceless. In the spirit of Christ, we seek to confront evil in the world and to alleviate suffering through justice advocacy and direct service. Sunday, October 1, is the suggested date for the Neighbors In Need special mission offering.
This denominational effort supports critical programs.
Neighbors In Need supports ministries that address poverty, economic development, human rights, peacemaking, violence, racial and economic justice, environmental concerns, and public policy advocacy.
