Mission & Services Fund
Mission and Service Fund
The members of the congregation of Thornhill United Church designate a portion of their givings to be assigned to the Mission and Service (M&S) of the United Church of Canada. Our gifts for M&S are a sign of compassion for the world, and they build community and offer hope. Using the UCC New Creed for guidance, the following is a partial list of how our donations are used.
- Called to be the Church: M&S supports Theological schools and ministry training.
- Love and Serve Others: M&S supports emergency relief in response to disasters; supports chaplaincy for prisons and hospitals, supports work with other Christian churches on matters of justice, peace and human dignity.
- Live with Respect in Creation: M&S supports environmental stewardship, work for right relationships with the earth, and development of respect for all peoples.
- Seek Justice and Resist Evil: M&S supports the United Church’s response to globalization-Challenging the Empire, advocacy for justice, and addressing causes of conflict.
The needs are large and your contributions always help the larger world community.
