And now faith, hope, and love abide, these three; and the greatest of these is love.
– Paul’s letter to the Corinthians 

The United Church of Santa Fe strives to “Love God, Love Neighbor, Love Creation.” We invite you to join several opportunities to move beyond the physical walls of United by being God’s hands and heart in this world.

About Paul’s letter to the Corinthians,

Rev. William Sloane Coffin said, “I doubt if in any other scriptures of the world there is a more radical statement of ethics.”

Global Relief

Compassionate Christmas Gifts Great Success

Thanks to the generosity of the United congregation and others in the wider community, as of Dec. 14, we had raised $5,600 to provide blankets for Ukrainian and other refugees, scholarships for youth immersion trips, support for NM Immigration Law Center, gift cards for families in need, school trips to the Audubon Center, and other needs. More donations continue to come in and we’ll have a complete report in the February newsletter.

United Church of Christ Christmas Fund

Many United Church of Christ retirees faithfully served low-income inner-city or rural congregations and/or communities of color, and their pensions are very low. The UCC Christmas Fund provides emergency grants, supplemental annuities, and health insurance, Christmas “Thank You” checks for clergy retirees in need. With inflation, that need is greater than ever. Click here to donate or send a check to United Church of Santa Fe (memo “Christmas Fund”).

United's Outreach by the Numbers

United's Outreach Giving Totals $112,114 in 2022

United Church members and friends, in Santa Fe and across the country, gave more than $100,000 this past year to “love God by loving our neighbor and God’s creation.” $12,700+ went to the United Church of Christ, regionally and nationally, as well as to special offerings (One Great Hour of Sharing, Christmas Fund) and local congregations in need. The remainder went to both local and international organizations to provide support and supplies for Ukrainian refugees, Afghan resettlement, Navajo/Diné relief, regular meals for guests of Santa Fe shelters, mittens for kids in need, legal aid for immigrants, comfort backpacks for kids in crisis, books and social workers for public school kids, support for composting, carbon offset for travel, New Mexico fire relief, hurricane and other climate catastrophe relief, and financial assistance for members and friends facing medical or other emergency needs. In addition, United’s outreach efforts are supported by extensive staff and volunteer involvement. A detailed report of outreach giving will be provided in the Feb. 26 Congregational Budget meeting. Thank you all, near and far, who made such generosity possible! And who will continue it into the future as we are called to “Love God, Love Neighbor, Love Creation.”
