Board of Christian Outreach News

South Church's Outreach Board distributes funds allocated to the church's annual benevolence budget, currently 9% of pledges received. We also raise opportunities to serve in person, not just send off money. For example, church members serve food at Not Bread Alone and the COTS program, hammer nails with Habitat for Humanity volunteers, go on ASP mission trips, visit the homebound, and do many more things.
The board also strives to educate everyone about how our contributions serve the wider UCC community and our global community.  The following links lead to information about many of the ways we connect with our global family and help to show God's love in the world by offering up our helping hands and hearts.
