40 MACUCC Churches Reach 5 for 5 Status in 2011


In 2011, 40 churches in the Massachusetts Conference were recognized as “5 for 5 Churches”. This means that in the calendar year 2011 they have contributed to Our Church’s Wider Mission Basic Support and all four of the Special Offerings:

  • One Great Hour of Sharing
  • Neighbors in Need
  • Strengthen the Church
  • Christmas Fund

"These churches exemplify excellence in Christian mission by supporting all the ways the United Church of Christ is changing lives, whether through disaster assistance, hunger programs, justice work, church vitality, leadership development, youth and children’s ministries, new church starts, or assistance to low income retired clergy," said Associate Conference Minister Andy Gustafson. 

 "We thank them for their comprehensive support of God's work through the United Church of Christ," he added.
