Neighbors in Need
Neighbors in Need (NIN) is one of two nation-wide campaigns by our denomination that FCCSR actively supports. (The other is One Great Hour of Sharing.) NIN focuses on ministries of justice and compassion throughout the United States. One-third of NIN funds support the Council for American Indian Ministry(CAIM). Two-thirds of the offering is used by the UCC’s Justice and Witness Ministries(JWM) to support a variety of justice initiatives, advocacy efforts, and direct service projects.
We collect the NIN offering in October of each year, and FCCSR us usually usually near the top of the list in per-member giving.
