Support Ministry

Transformation Ministry

We are a Five-for-Five church, meaning we give to the five special offerings of the United Church of Christ throughout the year.  The Norfolk Community Pantry is our responsibility two weeks in June.  In June, we provide 3 volunteers every day to work at the pantry and money to supply the fresh items. Other projects are chosen as the need is determined. We volunteer at Laugh-and-a-Half marathon, and provide youth opportunities to serve at the church and in community. In July 2017, eight youth and adults served  at Re-Member on Pine Ridge Reservation, South Dakota, skirting and siding trailer homes, building decks, bunk beds, out houses, and learning about the Lakota people. During the Christmas season, we collect pajama's for the Salvation Army, and hats and gloves for Grant Elementary School. Since 2019, the youth have hosted several ice cream socials for the vets at the Vets Home and our neighbors at Skyline Apartments. As part of a grant to completely renovate Skyline Apartments, in 2019 our youth and adults helped to plant flowers and vegtables in the new garden boxes east of the apartment building.

Stewardship Action Team

We all know that giving meets needs. That's why we support our favorites charities--and the church. but is that all there is to say about giving?  "Gifting" is evidence in the way God blesses us. "Gifting" enables us to lead more faithful and fulfilling lives. Stewardship Action Team with the Pastor plan the Stewardship theme for the Lenten season (the few weeks leading up to Easter). Recognizing ourselves as both gifting and gifted,our faith grows--and giving acquires a new dimension and deeper value.


Budget Action Team

How much money will we need for ministry next year? The Budget Action Team works with the current budget and the other ministry teams and trends to fashion a budget to bring before the congregation at the spring Annual Meeting.
