UC News: OCWM giving increasing

Thursday, October 25, 2007

From UC News:
With three months remaining in the year, financial reports are showing promising signs for Our Church's Wider Mission, the UCC's common purse for shared ministries at the national and international settings of the church.

At the end of September, OCWM National Basic Support stood at $4,756,553 or an increase of $491,740 over last year's total at the same point.

Twenty-four of the UCC's 38 Conferences have remitted more money to date this year over last year. Thirteen are reporting less financial support. One Conference is reporting an equal amount.

Since June's report, the positive financial comparison has grown from a $316,705 net increase to $491,740, another promising sign.

The Rev. William Green of the UCC's Stewarship [sic] Ministry says that, typically, the end of September has represented "the half way point" for the year, since many churches and Conferences hold remittances until later in the year. Entering the year's final quarter in a more-favorable position is an encouraing [sic] sign, he says, and something the national setting has not experienced in recent years.
