Neighbors In Need (NIN)

Neighbors in Need goes to ministries of justice and compassion throughout the US, and helps support the UCC's Council for American Indian Ministries as well as justice and advocacy and direct service projects supported by Justice and Witness Ministries.

Most congregations receive this offering on the first Sunday of October. In 2016, the suggested offering date for the Neighbors in Need offering is October 2.


Neighbors in Need grants are awarded to churches and organizations doing justice work in their communities. These grants fund projects whose work ranges from direct service to community organizing and advocacy to address systemic injustice. Funding is provided through donations to the Neighbors in Need offering.
