Missions

Mission is the heart of who God calls us to be. This vital part of living our faith calls us to a growing awareness of who we are as Christians. In 2013, we stretched ourselves to reach out in new ways, from helping hungry children on the weekends to helping families with school supplies. Come join us as we learn more about how our faith calls us beyond our own doors.

  • By working with other churches in the United Church of Christ (UCC), we support Our Church's Wider Mission, helping the work of the across the nation and around the world. Through the Catoctin Association of the UCC, we donated funds to help a mission team build a house in Honduras.

  • We open our doors to all people and believe that Christians can work together in the ministry. As a member of Jefferson Ecumenical Ministries (JEM), our church works together with other churches to host joint community services all year. We support The Religious Coalition as it stives to to meet the needs of people in emergency situations.

  • We recognize the systemic injustice which creates inequities and leaves many people without resources for basic necessities. We support the Jefferson Community Food Bank through food drives and staffing. We support the Backpacks for Children Ministry, which provides needy childrens in our local schools with nutricious food for the weekend. During the summer, we worked with other Jefferson churches to ensure that each child at Valley Elementary School had a backpack and school supplies. During the fall, we provide needy children with Christmas presents that include clothes and toys.

  • We believe that every child deserves a safe and caring environment to learn how to be successful in life. We support The Jefferson School, which helps children and adolescents with behavioral and emotional challenges.

  • Our church is committed to help families through all stages of life. To help families with small children and to be good stewards of our resources, our church provides a place for childcare through Stepping Stone Center.
