Mission Team News


Interfaith Hospitality Network

First UCC begins our 9th year as a host congregation for IHN in 2019.  We are pleased to collaborate with 10 other religious congregations in the College Hill area.  We house families who are homeless for four weeks each year here and four weeks at College Hill Presbyterian Church.  In addition, we assist at Grace Place in College Hill during the summer when IHN uses the house.  For more information, contact IHN offices at 513-471-1100. 

Green Bean Collection

Throughout December, First UCC is collecting green beans for the Christmas celebration at Christ's Community in College Hill.  Baskets of food are distributed to more than 300 families at the holidays.  Service will be held December 18.

Trying to Make a Difference...

 "The Best Church I've ever attended. Truly warm and welcoming to all.. So much good work is done to help so many.. I feel so blessed, honored, and inspired. Thank you . "

"I was baptized, and confirmed at the First United Church of Christ on Hoffner Street!!! Wonderful People have come and gone in my 48+ years, the building has changed, but the LOVE OF THIS CHURCH HAS STAYED THE SAME!!!!! I AM PROUD AND HONORED TO BE A MEMBER OF THE FIRST UNITED CHURCH OF CHRIST!!!!!" 

Christmas Pageant and Services

We don't produce Hollywood-style Christmas shows, but you won't want to miss the pageant and luncheon on December 23 at our 10:15 service.  Pot-luck dinner after the charming Christmas story is told with our youth during worship.  

Christmas Eve services will be held at 5 p.m. and 11:00 p.m.  Both will have special music and words from our pastors Dan and Karen.  All are welcome.

Giving Thanks for our Mission Partners

First UCC is again thankful for the opportunities to partner with CAIN (Churches Active in Northside), Christ's Community, Washington UCC, and our UCC Mission Priority Board.  Each of these groups works collaboratively and carries out the healing and life-giving good news of faith. May our prayers and good work continue into 2019.
