The Christmas Eve Service loose offering will go to support The Christmas Fund and/or the Haddam Fuel Bank.
THE CHRISTMAS FUND
The Christmas Fund for the Veterans of the Cross and the Emergency Fund is a Special Mission Offering that congregations of our denomination have been supporting for over 100 years. The offering is administered through the United Church Board for Ministerial assistance, the charitable arm of the Pension Boards. Funds provide direct financial support to those who serve the church and are facing financial difficulties; active and retired clergy, lay employees, and their surviving spouses are provided supplemental income, emergency grants, and/or Christmas “Thank You” Gift Checks.
HADDAM FUEL BANK
The Haddam Emergency Fuel Bank is a local program designed to assist those in meeting their heating needs when all other sources of aid have been exhausted. The fuel bank runs year-round and is awarded as a one-time grant per individual or household.
