God's Baby Closet
First Congregational Church of Hampton opened God’s Baby Closet in 1990. This mission of the church provides support to families in the seacoast area. We supply diapers, wipes and clothing in sizes new born to 4 toddler. We also have a variety of toys, baby formula, baby food and other infant and toddler needs. We are open every Wednesday and Thursday from 10:00 to noon. We welcome any donations to this FCC of Hampton mission.
The Christmas Fund
Fourth Sunday of Advent
The Christmas Fund has been caring for active and retired clergy and lay employees of the United Church of Christ for over 100 years, providing emergency grants, supplementation of small annuities and health premiums, and Christmas “Thank You” gift checks each December to our lower-income retirees.
One Great Hour of Sharing
Fourth Sunday of Lent
Through the One Great Hour of Sharing (OGHS) special mission offering, the United Church of Christ collaborates with domestic and international partners to support humanitarian aid and sustainable development, bringing needed assistance to communities in need of long-term recovery and economic sustainability. Gifts to OGHS also provide much-needed resources to assist our partners in providing clean water, food, education, health care, small business micro-credit, emergency relief, advocacy, and resettlement for refugees.
Strengthen the Church
The Strengthen the Church (STC) Offering reflects the shared commitment of people across the United Church of Christ to cooperatively build up the UCC. Conferences and the national setting equally share the gifts given by members and friends through their local congregations. The funds raised support leadership development, new churches, youth ministry, and innovation in existing congregations. By your generosity to this offering, you build up the Body of Christ.
As God calls our congregations to be the church in new ways, your generosity will plant new churches, awaken new ideas in existing churches and develop the spiritual life in our youth and young adults.
