Coldest Night of the Year – February

On February 23, six members of Visions walked in the “Coldest Night of the Year” fund raiser. $645.00 was donated by various members of the congregation towards this project, supporting the work of Youth Impact Jeunesse.

The funds will go towards assisting nearly 500 at-risk and homeless youth in the Moncton area with clothing, a place to shower, a roof over their heads and a warm bed.

Christmas Cards and Calendars – January

For several years Visions United has given appropriate Christmas cards and calendars , donated at their Christmas Party, to inmates at the Springhill Institution. 360 cards, prepared by congregation members, and 67 calendars were donated in December, 2018. There are plans to continue this outreach program in 2019.

Mission & Service – December

The work of the United Church of Canada across the country and around the world is funded by the Mission and Service (M&S) Fund. ... It also gives us a collective voice in advocating change, justice, and peace, whether through the Canadian government or in work with our ecumenical partners.

Mission & Service (M&S) - "Gifts with Vision" is a giving catalogue from the United Church of Canada.  It provides an opportunity to support M&S by making donations, in a family or friends name, to a specified ministry or program.

Visions United had a 2018 M&S objective of $18,500.

Thanks to the generosity of our congregation we surpassed that for a total of $20,732.

We can accomplish more together than we ever can alone. The people of the United Church pool their gifts in the Mission and Service Fund (M&S). This fund is used for our national and global mission with partners, our justice and peace advocacy, and our efforts to care for the environment.
