United Thank Offering (often referred to as UTO)
is a ministry of the Episcopal Church that provides a way for men, women, and children of the Episcopal Church to give daily thanks to God. The discipline starts in the homes by dropping coins into a special container known as the “Blue Box.” Many families and individuals drop a coin in the Blue Box each time prayers of thanksgiving are offered. These funds are collected then forwarded to UTO and joined together with funds from other dioceses. Every year, the total offering is used for projects at home and abroad to support grants for missions and ministry. Please consider picking up a UTO Blue Box today and bring your donation (in the form of checks or currency) to the Church Sunday, May 15th.
