A Word from our Ministry Team
Today is Divine Mercy Sunday and a wonderful day to not only reflect upon the unconditional love that Jesus has for each one of us but also how that love is manifested to us in the abundant blessings God bestows on us. You can go online to our web page to read about how God has blessed the ministry of the UCC this past year and to learn more of where we hope God’s blessings will take us next year. It is through the support of your prayers, your time and your finances that makes our ministry to the University students, faculty and staff possible. Next Sunday, your financial support can be worth twice as much when you participate in the Matching Gift Sunday (MGS) weekend collection. Know that donations online or in person can be designated for MGS any time before that weekend. In addition to this giving opportunity, consider signing up for regular monthly giving if you are not already doing so. Regular monthly giving helps us to better manage our budget for our ongoing needs. Thank you for all of your support. May you be ever more aware of God’s abundant blessings in your life. - Fr. Ed Nowak Director
