Changing Lives Mission Grants are AVAILABLE
The Mission Team of the Southeast Association Wisconsin Conference is offering grants of up to $250 for programs/projects related to the UCC Three Great Loves campaign (Love of Neighbor, Love of Children, Love of Creation). This could include mission outreach programs or projects connected to a congregation’s local community; congregations engaged in conversations about race and privilege, including the Doctrine of Discovery; and/or congregations engaged in creation care. This grant can be either for a current program/project or a startup program/project. Applications are accepted on an ongoing basis and are reviewed at our bi-monthly committee meetings. Congregations may apply for more than one grant. Grantees are encouraged to submit an article to the SEA Currents describing each program for which they receive a grant. For more information or to download the application see the Changing Lives Grant Application or click here for the online application. Past grant recipients may apply again this year.
The Mission Team also seeks to communicate information about Mission Outreach projects as well as projects, workshops, and events throughout the Association, Conference, and Denomination. Whenever possible, we want to connect churches and congregants with similar interests so that they can share information and work together toward a common goal.
