Service to others is a vital part of the life of First United Church of Christ.  We give generously to many worthy projects through our Benevolence envelope collections.  But we also strive to do more than just give our money – we also provide opportunities to give of ourselves.  Some of these opportunities include:


  • Christmas gifts for children in need
  • Easter baskets for children in need
  • Thanksgiving meal baskets
  • The Backpack program which provides weekend food for  elementary and Headstart children in Troy
  • Provide a home for Boy Scout Troop 5
  • Support the Family Abuse Shelter, FISH, Lincoln Community Center, the food Pantry, and the UCC Disaster Ministries
  • ‘Relay for Life’ team and ‘Walk to End Alzheimer’s’ team
  • Monthly contact with our shut-ins by our Deaconesses
