Our Church's Wider Mission

The Glenview Community Church is involved with mission in many ways. As a member of the United Church of Christ (UCC) we affirm that, although the congregation is the fundamental unit of mission, mission is not just local. We are connected through a covenantal relationship to one another, across boundaries of neighborhood, class, race, and national border.

Our Church’s Wider Mission is the name we use to describe the work we do as the United Church of Christ beyond the local church–through our Conferences, national ministries, and UCC-related institutions. Our Church’s Wider Mission is also the name we give to the financial support given by UCC members and congregations that makes this broader mission possible.

Congregations, like the Glenview Community Church, are central to the ability of The United Church of Christ to do mission in local communities, within the United States and internationally. As a congregation works in its own community, it is a representative of the entire denomination and embodies the UCC in that place.
