Neighbors in Need is a special mission offering of the UCC that supports ministries of justice and compassion throughout the United States. One -third of NIN funds support the Council for American Indian Ministry(CAIM). Two-thirds of the offering is used by the UCC's Justice and Witness Ministries(JWM) to support a variety of justice initiatives, advocacy efforts, and direct service projects through grants. The 2017 theme for NIN is "Protect the Sacred: In a Just World, Clean Water is Life." The place offering will take starting October 1 through the month of October in Deansboro. Think of the many injustices that take place all over the United States, and with your support, imagine that justice can be accessible for everyone, through the Neighbors in Need offering.
