We Reach Beyond Ourselves

 

     The United Church of Christ links us with other churches to share work, resources, and ideas.  We support the work we share together through our gifts to Our Church's Wider Mission (UCC.org).  We come together with other UCC churches to share resources through special offerings:

 

One Great Hour of Sharing (Worldwide Disaster Relief and Development),

 

Neighbors in Need (Relief and Development in the United States),

 

Strengthen the Church (Renewal of struggling churches, and new church starts),

 

The Christmas Fund (Supplementary support for retired clergy).

 

     The Tapply-Thompson Community Center provides recreational and support activities for families

     Bristol Community Services provides emergency food supplies, household goods, and short-term transportation for individuals in the Bristol area.  We contribute to their operating budget as well as contributing food supplies and help make possible an emergency fuel fund.
