It will be our joy to serve as the host congregation for this year’s UCC Community Thanksgiving Worship at 7:30 P.M. Tuesday, November 20.

Our congregation will share with St. Thomas UCC and St. John’s UCC-Chesterfield in what has become our traditional shared worship service.

An opportunity to participate in a combined choir is being offered to everyone from our three congregations who would like to participate. The Chesterfield Community Ringers will also offer special music during this worship.

We are truly blessed that Rev. Tyler Connoley, our Missouri Mid-South Conference UCC Minister of Search and Call Discernment, will preach.

Offering gifts from this evening will be given to Circle of Concern. A reception including refreshments for all of our guests will follow worship in Fellowship Hall. This occasion thanking God for our blessings is a valued tradition which our area UCC congregations enjoy together.

Supporting Isaiah 58 Ministries

February 17, 2018 by  
Filed under News & Announcements

Here at Ivy Chapel United Church of Christ, we are proud of the longstanding relationships we have had with the organizations we support. We’re also proud to announce a newer partnership, with Isaiah 58 Ministries.

As you consider how you will support Isaiah 58 Ministries it is helpful to know that because of their partnerships with St. Louis Area Foodbank and Operation Food Search your giving dollars can be stretched. Donations of canned and box foods are always appreciated, but it also good to know that financial contributions are also welcome.  As a Tier One partner with the Foodbank, Isaiah 58 is able to purchase food for 10 cents a pound. For example an average box of cereal costs $4.00. If you donate the $4.00 directly to their ministry Isaiah 58 can purchase approximately 40 comparable boxes of cereal through the food bank, allowing them to feed even more families.

Visit the Isaiah 58 ministries website to learn more about this organization.

If you’d like to contribute through Ivy Chapel, or if you would like to learn more about how we work with Isaiah 58 and other local organizations, please feel free to reach out to us.

 

Ivy reaches out during Lent

Filed under News & Announcements

Giving is Christian outreach “Ivy-style”! Our congregation is responding to multiple offering invitations this Lenten Season. We give God glory for the many, additional ways in which people of Ivy Chapel United Church of Christ are reaching out beyond our church.

Rejoice over this extensive array of things our congregation has done and is doing this Lent: supporting World Vision in connection with Ivy Youth 30-Hour Famine; Lenten canned food drive which will go to three local food pantries; supporting Shannondale, a mission project with the Missouri Mid-south Conference of the UCC with its craft center, lodge for retreats and outdoor programs; supporting Baby Blue Pantry (operating through Wee Care Learning Center of Festus, providing money for baby diapers and formula for families in need); and supporting ecumenical, global ministries by offering gifts to One Great Hour of Sharing (all donations accepted through Easter).
Praise God for Ivy’s faithful responses to these invitations to give!

Please send us an email to learn more about the organizations we support, or if you would like to learn how you can help.
