STRENGTHEN THE CHURCH OFFERING: Sunday, May 23 will be Pentecost Sunday. On that day, POVUCC will collect the "Strengthen the Church" offering. The Strengthen the Church (STC) Offering reflects the shared commitment of people across the United Church of Christ to cooperatively build up the UCC. Conferences and the national setting equally share the gifts given by members and friends through their local congregations. The funds raised support leadership development, new churches, youth ministry, and innovation in existing congregations. Please consider making a donation to this offering anytime between now and May 23. Checks can be made payable to POVUCC with "Strengthen the Church Offering" written in the memo, while online payments may be made by utilizing the church's blue online donation button provided below. Please be certain to click the top drop-down menu and select "3002 Strengthen the Church."
