The Missions Committee of UCC is responsible for encouraging, promoting and overseeing the missions and outreach opportunities of UCC and focuses on three separate areas of service:
Charitable Giving is a way in which the Love of God through Christ, is demonstrated to the world by us, His Church. Jesus began His ministry on earth by declaring that He has brought “good news to the poor”. (Luke 4)
Since 2019, UCC has been running a soup kitchen from time to time in order to serve those most vulnerable in our community
Evangelism is taking the opportunity to spread God’s word, and it is woven throughout every ministry area of UCC but especially through the Missions Committee. Cultivating a lifestyle of reaching out to the lost is vital to the fulfilment of Jesus’ commission to us:
“All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptising them in the name of the Father and the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you to the end of the age.” Matthew 28:18-20 NIV
Digital Engagement is the primary way through which UCC reaching out using online tools such as our website and social media pages. Through these new technologies people all over the world have a window into the life we live in service to Christ and others.
Every April & November the United Community Church holds an Artisan’s Fair on our church grounds with over 150 local artisans that showcase their original hand crafted items. All vendors have been hand picked by the UCC Feria committee and a significant portion of the proceeds goes to support the UCC Mission Program.
BABS, the British and American Benevolent Society oversees the Devoto Home, a primary care geriatric facility. This is UCC’s oldest mission outreach program. On the fourth Sunday of each month, a pastor or lay leader and members of the congregation go to the Devoto Home (BABS) to join the residents for tea and sandwiches and lead a brief worship service.
UCC partners with different local and international organizations to do evangelistic and charitable outreaches into needy communities in our region.
Visits from Pneumatix School of Ministry and South Carolina Christian Dance Theatre are some of the programs that have been organised.
Members of UCC also do volunteer work in different charitable organisations like Casa de Galilea, Misioneras de la Caridad and others.
