At UCC Burlington, we honor Jesus’ call to serve God by serving others. We believe in giving our time, talents and treasures to further our mission support our local community and communities around the world.
We are a non-profit organization funded by our church members. In addition to collections during the worship service, we have an annual stewardship campaign in the fall where members pledge their financial commitment for the following year. We use this information to create our church budget for the upcoming year.
We also run several fundraising events throughout the year, including our biggest event, which is our annual Olde Tyme Faire in November. We use our funds for operating costs – including building upkeep and staff and for our mission work supporting local, national and international causes. If you’d like to organize a church fundraiser, either for the general fund or for a specific cause, you’ll need to fill out these forms and bring your proposal to Parish Council.
Time and Talent
There are many opportunities for individuals to share their time and talents – including helping at special events, singing in the choir, worship leadership, assisting with our children’s ministries, hosting coffee hour, or by serving on one of our church committees. Every year, during our Stewardship campaign, we ask people to fill out a “Time and Talent” survey in which they specify the ministries of the church that they’d like to contribute to.
UCC Burlington is a vibrant community of individuals who come together to serve God and support each other as we continue on life’s journey.
