Conference Giving

Your congregation's ongoing commitment to Our Church's Wider Mission (OCWM) provides essential ministries that resource, strengthen and sustain all of our local churches in the Wisconsin Conference.

The ministry of the Wisconsin Conference of the United Church of Christ serves to provide an extensive support system to associations, churches, clergy and laity. Your contributions to Our Church’s Wider Mission (OCWM) make this possible.  Following are DOWNLOADABLE MATERIALS that describe the support and resources available to congregations through the Wisconsin Conference.
