We’re so excited to launch this year’s annual giving campaign, “Grace in Action.” Throughout the month of October, we’ll reflect together on how God generously puts grace into action through us.
Here at United Christian Church of Austin, we’ve been hard at work putting grace into action. For example, through our Little Pantry and work with Bethany Food Bank, we are feeding the hungry every day. Through our radical hospitality and LGBTQ+ welcoming, we’ve made a spiritual home for adults, youth, and children who have been elsewhere excluded.
Through our contributions to organizations like Coalition for the Homeless and our denominations’ Global Missions Office, we’re empowering people near and far. Through our weekly Children’s Collection, 5th Sunday Service Projects, and our annual Youth Mission Trip, all generations at UCC come together to make God’s grace real in our world today.
This month, you’ll hear and read brief testimonies from pledging members of our community. You’ll hear why they’ve committed their time and resources to this amazing family of faith and its mission, and we hope you’ll find your place to give, too. You'll have your own opportunity to make a pledge on Giving Sunday, October 23rd. No matter how you choose to pledge to the mission of UCC in 2023, know that your commitment is putting God’s grace into action, creating a more just and peaceful world for all.
Grace and peace,
