The congregation here at First Congregational supports a wide range of causes with mission donations.
Four times a year, our mission donations are shared among our regular missions, currently supporting Abililty Works, Community Youth Mentoring (formerly Big Brothers Big Sisters), Care & Share of Erie County, Erie County Senior Center, the LGBT Community Center of Cleveland, Crossroad, the Crossroads Shelter (Volunteers of America), the CUE Seminaries of the United Church of Christ, and the United Church Homes (Parkvue).
One-time donations are also given to deserving causes, such as Doctors Without Borders.
Monies collected at our summer Shoreline services are donated to non-profits chosen by our weekly speakers. Last year these included Stein Hospice, Relay for Life, Celebrate Recovery at The Chapel, Rahab House, Safe Harbour, The Boys & GIrls Club of Erie County, The Humane Society of Erie County, Firelands Habitat for Humanity, the Catholic Charities of the Diocese of Toledo, Experience Works, Sandusky Life Church, Firelands Positive People, Stroke Club, and the FIrst Congregational Air Conditioning Fund.
