A message from Cheryl Curtis, Manager, Mission & Service Giving, United Church of Canada:
"Thank you for all you do to live out Jesus' teachings of abundance. What an amazing version of the salt and light story the people of The United Church of Canada tell with our lives! God's compassionate, hope-fulfilling, community-strengthening presence is made real by our generosity. Today, I am especially thankful for your generosity for Mission & Service in 2016. I am grateful to the people of Stroud: St. James Pastoral Charge for giving $16,850 for Mission & Service. Together we gave $25,322,586 in 2016 for Mission & Service.
Mission & Service giving means that families needing food and care are welcomed and fed, people who are sick in hospital are visited and accompanied, people needing justice declare their call for rights with a supportive community, and people needing housing find shelter and security. It also means that students receive bursaries for their journey to becoming ministers, churches testing innovative ministry ideas get funding and coaching, people from the margins find a welcome and a home in our church, and searchers find spaces of belonging."
