University Christian Church has a long history of serving Christ’s people here and around the world. Our congregation’s mission statement includes these words:
“We are called to create a loving and caring community for all people, and work together for justice and peace in our world. Recognizing that our spiritual journeys are all different, we strive to be respectful and inclusive concerning each individual’s relationship with God.”
While this vision and mission is supported by the generous regular tithes and offerings of our members, this witness is enhanced by the estate and legacy gifts from individuals who respond to Christ’s call in their lives by including the church in their planning.
The UCC Legacy Society recognizes those members and friends who have put gift plans in place or established permanent funds. The Legacy Society encourages church members and friends to make gifts from their accumulated resources to the Endowment Fund. Individuals also can make gifts to establish permanent funds within the Endowment Fund. Income from the Endowment Fund allows us to enhance our worship experience, extend our outreach and advocate for social justice, foster relationships and partnerships, provide meaningful opportunities for Christian education and spiritual growth, and nurture the arts.
Legacy giving is not limited to those with significant wealth; anyone can participate, regardless of the size of the gift. We do ask that you consider your legacy giving to be above and beyond your regular stewardship commitment.
