Our mission is to engage our membership in demonstrating the love of God in Jesus Christ by our actions in ways that offer help, hope and reconciliation to individuals and families within and beyond our community. In our ministry we commit ourselves to building caring partnerships and fostering mutual ministries with the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), other faith-based communities, and human services organizations serving those in need.
"Living the Good News of Jesus Christ With Open Minds and Loving Hearts"
The Outreach Funding Program of University Christian Church (UCC) provides financial support to non-profit organizations that promote Christian beliefs and principles through services or program.
UCC has a passion for ending hunger, in our neighborhood and around the world. When we have been blessed with such abundance, we cannot stand by and hope someone else does something to feed our neighbor who has no food. "…if you offer your food to the hungry and satisfy the needs of the afflicted, then your light shall rise in the darkness and your gloom be like the noonday.” Isaiah 58:10
It is our goal, through Global Outreach initiatives, to show the kindness of Jesus Christ by going out into the world to serve and love our others. University Christian Church is a well-traveled congregation working with our hands and hearts and establishing lifelong friendships. UCC also supports missionary partners, serving tirelessly and joyfully in Nicaragua, Chile, and South Africa.
As stewards of the earth, we are called to live in harmony with the environment, respect and honor the gifts of God's creation. To live out our call we will practice good stewardship of resources in daily living; increase understanding the issues through study, dialogue and prayer; advocate locally, nationally, and globally, for the good of the whole; encourage equitable sharing of global resources; and challenge ourselves and others to "use only what we need." "The earth is the Lord's and the fullness thereof, the world and they that dwell therein." Psalm 24:1
University Christian Church engages in ministries that allow our members to be helpful to those who are homeless, building a home, require assistance in paying an electric or gas bill or feeding their family. Sharing our time and talents brings joy to others, to us, to God.
