Changing Lives Mission Grants are AVAILABLE

The Mission Team of the Southeast Association Wisconsin Conference is offering grants of up to $250 for programs/projects related to the UCC Three Great Loves campaign (Love of Neighbor, Love of Children, Love of Creation). This could include mission outreach programs or projects connected to a congregation’s local community; congregations engaged in conversations about race and privilege, including the Doctrine of Discovery; and/or congregations engaged in creation care. This grant can be either for a current program/project or a startup program/project. Applications are accepted on an ongoing basis and are reviewed at our bi-monthly committee meetings. Congregations may apply for more than one grant. Grantees are encouraged to submit an article to the SEA Currents describing each program for which they receive a grant. For more information or to download the application see the  Changing Lives Grant Application  or  click here  for the online application. Past grant recipients may apply again this year.
