Mission and Outreach
Our mission is to respond to the needs of our local families as well as the needs of our national and global families. We are a congregation that strives to do our part to spread the love of God and to make a difference locally and around the world.
We are a 5 for 5 congregation giving to OCWM basic support and each of the following special mission offerings.
- One Great Hour of Sharing
- Strengthen the Church
- Neighbors in Need
- The Christmas Fund
Recent and ongoing mission activities include hunger relief projects, helping people without permanent addresses, and disaster aid.
Each year CUCC participates in the local CROP WALK event. Members ask for sponsorships and walk to raise money in support of local organizations that work to fight hunger.
CUCC participated in the first CU Habitat Interfaith Build in 2016-17.
