GLOBAL – MISSION AND SERVICE FUND
The work of The United Church of Canada across the country and around the world is funded by the Mission and Service (M&S) Fund. Members and supporters of the United Church know that it takes money to put their faith into action. In the M&S Fund they combine their gifts so that the work of the church can be done effectively. Each year the national church sets a goal to fund united work. In 2014, the people of First United Church gave $31,000 to the M&S fund. FIND OUT MORE
