Christmas Fund (Veterans of the Cross) Offering Collected on December 19th and Christmas Eve!


The Christmas Fund has been caring for active and retired clergy and lay employees of the United Church of Christ for over 100 years, providing emergency grants, supplementation of small annuities and health premiums, and Christmas “Thank You” gift checks each December to our lower-income retirees.


This year, we rejoice at the opening of possibilities for gathering and worshipping together again, as we anticipate the good news of great joy at Christmas. Still, challenges remain for many of our pastoral leaders who continue to experience loss of income as congregations struggle with budget shortfall.


The offering will be collected on December 19th and Christmas Eve. It is possible to contribute in one of three ways: by writing a check to The First Church in Oberlin with “Christmas Fund” in the memo line, by using the offering envelopes on the Welcome Table, or by clicking here, scrolling down and then clicking "Donate Online" and going to the “Christmas Fund” section. You can put your donation in the wooden donation box in the Narthex at the top of the steps leading to the Gallery or mail it in to the church office.


See the flyer below for more information on the special offering. Please show your continued gratitude for our active and retired UCC clergy who need our support by giving to the Christmas Fund this year. Thank you for your consideration!
