Artisan's Fair: Every November the United Community Church holds an Artisan's Fair on our church grounds. This fair hosts over 150 local artisans that showcase their original hand crafted items. The items for sale are as varied as the individual artisans themselves. All vendors have been hand picked by the UCC Feria committee and are provided with their own "booth" to present and sell their handiwork. A significant portion of the proceeds goes to support the UCC Mission Program.
BABS, the British and American Benevolent Society oversees the Devoto Home, a primary care geriatric facility. This is UCC's oldest mission outreach program. On the fourth Sunday of each month, a pastor or lay leader and members of the congregation go to the Devoto Home (BABS) to join the residents for tea and sandwiches and lead a brief worship service. enjoyment.
The Padrino program is coordinated between UCC and the German Church. Padrinos are persons who sponsor the high school education of indigent children. With Padrino support, these children not only have the means to finish high school but also the opportunity to participate in enrichment education during periodic weekend workshops. These include computer experience, dealing-with-life counseling, friendship building, etc. Sponsors are always needed.
Casi Nuevo is a resale shop located down the street from UCC, and the proceeds provide support for BABS. You can help by either working shifts at Casi Nuevo or by donating goods.
The Laura Vicuña Project, located in the barrio of Tigre, aids battered women. UCC provides some financial support.
