Mission Central



Our Mission Team along with Pastor Kelly have decided to support Assist Communities in the fight to end Opioid Addiction in our community. Part of our plan is to become intimately aware of the needs of agencies working in this fight and to learn how ALUCC can get involved. We are inviting all of our church members as well as family and friends to visit the local rehab facilities and to get actively involved.

Mission Central has a new home on Facebook!

Second Harvest Food Bank
The Mission Team has an opportunity for volunteers to sort and pack food for distribution to Lorain County agencies that support those in need of daily food.

The work requires inspecting and sorting incoming food from Giant Eagle stores in the area. The workers stand at work tables that feed to a roller conveyor for final packing. Some light lifting is required. Typical work attire is appropriate. The volunteers will go through a training and orientation presentation prior to working.

Date:Saturday, March 3
Time: 10:00 AM – 12:00 PM
Location:Second Harvest Food Bank of North Central Ohio 5510 Baumhart Rd, Lorain, OH 44053

ONE GREAT HOUR OF SHARING (OGHS) is a special mission offering that carries God’s message of love and hope to people in crisis. Lives are literally changed daily. Providing clean water and sanitation for those in need, thermal blankets for those displaced from their homes, and vaccinations for children are some of the ways the UCC works with international partners to change lives throughout the world. Your offering will have an impact in supporting sustainable agricultural development and domestic and international ministries for disaster preparedness and response. God provides for us more than we can imagine. (Ephesians 3:20) Please find the OGHS envelope in your church bulletin, join with other UCC church members, and make a donation to One Great Hour of Sharing.
