The New York Conference Covenant Share was approved at the 2013 Annual Meeting as a new special offering that churches are encouraged to take. In initiating “UCC Covenant Share” we emphasize that the Conference is not asking, nor recommending that local congregations add a line item to their budget for UCC Covenant Share. Rather, it is recommending that the local church request each member (perhaps at the time of their pledging or on Conference Sunday) to contribute a $10 annual Covenant Share gift to the United Church of Christ in New York. Of course, each church has the right to determine it’s own method of collection.
Each church would then be sent a “Covenant Share Expectation Statement” by the New York Conference on an annual basis in early November. The Statement will report the last recorded membership number provided to the conference. Churches will be asked to fill in a number (participating church members and participating community members) that are contributing to “UCC Covenant Share”. Resources will be provided by the conference to the local church on ways the “Covenant Share” might be interpreted and collected.
A grant committee will be established to receive grant requests for funds that accumulate in the Resourcing the Local Church Fund. The committee will meet twice/year to receive and act upon grant requests.
