As we move into the holiday season, many UALC ministries and partners are looking for additional help and resources. We call this the "Season for Giving." The following list will help you to start planning how you can get involved.
Advance The Mission Of UALC
Giving to the general fund makes ministry possible at UALC. 20% of the general fund goes directly to supporting missions like the ones below. The other 80% supports preaching the gospel and the ongoing work of this church. Thank you for your additional giving to help keep us on track as we come to the end of this year.
