MISSION COMMITTEE

About the Mission Committee

CHUCC's Mission Committee works to identify and support opportunities to act as God's body within the community.   To accomplish this, we engage with a wide variety of local, national and international non-profit organizations that serve and advocate for communities and populations in need.  

 

Our two permanent subgroups focus on specific issues related to Racial Justice & Equity and Immigrant Justice. 

 

We also conduct Quarterly Special Offerings and organizes several events to support advocacy and hands-on work for our identified priorities of Hunger, Housing and Community Services.

Special Offerings and Projects
