There are still four slots open if you would like to join us for the September trip.
The UCC Coffee Project is a partnership between our UCC Justice and Witness Ministries and Equal Exchange, a worker-owned cooperative founded over 25 years ago and dedicated to fair trade. Equal Exchange works with coffee, tea, cocoa, and sugar farmer-owned coops in 20 plus countries, helping farmers in places like Colombia, Sri Lanka, and the Dominican Republic support their families, plan for the future, and care for the environment.
Through the UCC Coffee Project, local churches and their members make a difference in the lives of farm families,
We are experiencing a good year together. The stories you will read in the attached brochure will reveal that we have much for which to be glad and grateful. Our professional skills, personal passions, and resources of money, time and influence are being contributed to carry out a diversity of ministries, programs and mission outreach.
Giving ourselves to something greater than we are can bring spiritual as well as tangible benefits. There is good done to us when we do good for others. This is especially true when the good we do is fueled by our glad and grateful hearts.
This stewardship season is the time to make plans for the good we want to deliver in the year ahead. In the coming weeks, you will hear stories on Sunday mornings (and via weekly email) of the impact that our Extravagant Welcome, Justice & Peace Seeking, and Continuing Testament have had on others. We hope these weeks will be a time for you to consider the celebration and commitment you want to share on Sunday, April 13.
With glad and grateful hearts,
The Church Council
