Sylvania UCC embraced the challenge of Mission 1. The church board of Christian Outreach challenged the congregation to raise 1,111 non-perishable food items for the 'Pumpkin Patch'. They surpassed that goal by collecting 1,480 items. This inter-generational project enabled the church to donate the collection to two food banks and a social service program which provides comprehensive assistance to victims of domestic sex trafficking. Throughout the year, one of this congregation’s major focuses is feeding the hungry. Thank you UCC for engaging us in this meaningful challenge!
