UNITED THANK OFFERING

United Thank Offering (UTO) is a ministry of Christ Church. Members of the congregation take a "Blue Box" home and each day they drop spare coins into the box as they give thanks for the blessings of their life. By this habit of giving daily thanks to God we discover that thankfulness leads to generosity. Twice a year, at a worship service in spring and fall, we hold "In-gatherings" where the boxes are gathered. The proceeds, every coin that goes into the box, are used for grants, made by the national United Thank Offering Committee.

 

The United Thank Offering of the Episcopal Church awarded 48 grants for a total of $1,517,280.91 for the mission and ministry of the Episcopal Church and the Anglican Communion. The 2013 grants were awarded to projects in 38 Episcopal Church dioceses, six international provinces and the Domestic and Foreign Missionary Society.United Thank Offering (UTO) is a ministry of Christ Church.
