Proposals for 2018 funding consideration are due in the conference office based on the following submission deadlines: January 8, April 9, July 9 and October 8.
Here are some of the projects the Catalyst Team has funded so far this year:
- Grace UCC in Wausau’s Neighborhood Outreach Ministry: Grace UCC in Wausau is engaged in learning about and reaching into their neighborhood. This grant funded an outdoor movie night so that neighbors could meet one another and engage with the church community in a welcoming, low-risk situation. Other initiatives will arise from listening and identifying strengths and needs in their community. For more information contact Rev. Julie Goranson.
