The Missions group at Faith UCC is extremely active both locally and abroad. Our mission is to reach out in love beyond the church doors with compassion to all in need.
Every year we are paired with families from Interparish Ministry whom we follow throughout the year.
At Thanksgiving, we provide those families with food and groceries for a Thanksgiving meal and beyond
At Christmas, we provide not only food, but also clothes and toys.
We prepare disaster relief and personal care kits for the Ohio Conference.
We collect food year-round to help families in our area
We collect school bags and supplies for children returning to school to be distributed by Interparish Ministry.
We make personal care kits for the James Saul Center, a shelter for homeless and abused women and children
We support the Southwest Ohio Northern Kentucky Association Global Partnership with Rubate College in Kenya, Africa. We have sponsored fund-raising dinners, hosted visitors from Kenya, and supported a grass-roots organization known as the Kind Mothers, whose mission is to care for AIDS orphans and single mothers with children in the Rubate area. In addition, we have donated money and supplies to build a health clinic on the Rubate college campus.

We coordinate meal assistance in case of illness, injury, or when needed.
