OCWM provides funding for the work of UCC Conference and National ministries in support of the life and work of the local church and its members. OCWM changes lives by strengthening our ecumenical relationships and global partnerships, by imagining and embodying a better world through prophetic witness and work, and by providing resources and programs to nurture the vitality of our United Church of Christ congregations. To become a 5 for 5 church a congregation gives to OCWM Basic Support and participates in the four Special Mission Offerings.
In 2012 our Five for Five Collections will be:
March 18 – On Great Hour of Sharing Special Mission Offering
May 27 – Strengthen the Church Special Mission Offering
October 7 – Neighbors in Need Special Mission Offering
November 11 – Stewardship Offering
Decmeber 23 – Christmas Fund Special Mission Offering
