University Congregational Church, UCC, Missoula, Montana is Mission:1
The youth from University Congregational UCC spent over $2,000 to buy more than 85 cases of food to donate to the Missoula Food Bank. But before the food was delivered, the youth stopped along the way at their church, to construct a communion table with the food boxes before they were donated. The communion table symbolized the spiritual food they receive. The Rev. Amy Carter says, "It is significant in this time of economic down turn that we remember and support those in need in our community. It is also significant that as a church we build our communion table with this food at the table where we remember Jesus, who once said 'blessed are the hungry, for they will be filled.'"
