On Pentecost most of our congregations will take the Strengthen the Church Offering. The offering supports the work of our conference and the wider United Church of Christ as we equip pastors and leaders, form new congregations and help existing ones find their way through conflict.
Half of your gift to Strengthen the Church will support the Wisconsin Conference. It provides the financial resources our conference needs to try new innovative programs like the Damascus Project, to advocate for immigrant justice, and to deepen the leadership gifts of our clergy. The other half of your gift to Strengthen the Church supports projects across the country, especially resources for new congregations and programs for youth and young adults.
