United Church of Christ, Covington, Ohio is Mission:1
The church Stewardship Committee set 555 food items as a Mission:1 goal since the congregation is small. Members thought if 30 families each brought 18 items that they could make it happen. But when folks were told that other UCC churches were trying to collect 1111 non-perishable food items for Mission:1, it set a challenge in motion. As the 11 days progressed the food kept piling up; the congregation wanted to think big and double the original goal to 1111 items for the local food pantry. Well, they did it! MISSION: 1 accomplished!
