  “Thank you for the
   Christmas check I

 UCC members think
  of us “old” people.”
                    “God with us”
                    Matthew 1: 18-25

  Love and peace. “This

 month as the monthly

expenses for the month.”

 passed away and my health
     has deteriorated, I am
   completely living on my

the wife of a deceased UCC
minister…”

                             Matthew 1: 18-25




“It is very important for us to say
  “thank you” to someone. The
 special Christmas check is very
welcome sight. Sixty-seven years
of marriage equals quite a clan –
  were into great grand children
bracket now. eight and going on
    nine at the present count.”

           goodness.”

 each one who made this gift
    possible. The love and
kindness reflects God’s love,
    through your ministry.
It is a blessing and a big help
   for me. Bless you in this
         advent season
      and on in the year.”

                        Matthew 1: 18-25




 “I never expected to live
    long enough to be a
recipient for the Christmas
Fund. I want the church to
know how much the gift is
       appreciated.”
                        “God with us”
                        Matthew 1: 18-25

presence and divine guidance,

                          “God with us”
                          Matthew 1: 18-25




 “Many, many thanks I can’t
thank you and God like I want
  to. The gift truly represents
God’s presence, care and love.
    May the Lord continue
      to bless each of you
          and peace.”
                        “God with us”
                        Matthew 1: 18-25




     “God’s presence, care
 and love, have been blessedly
   with me from the moment
I was conceived. My challenge
  has been to give our God the
hugest, monumental, thank you
 for his love and care for me.”
                         “God with us”
                         Matthew 1: 18-25

 past when ministers salaries
   were small and women

smaller, I appreciate the gift.”

“Again I express my thankfulness.
I will be 90 years of age this year.
   I retired when I was sixty-two
following the advice of my doctor
  after a heart attack. I have been
through open heart surgery twice,
  and I am reaching my ninetieth
birthday. It must be your care that
   has empowered me, sincerely
             thank you.”
                          “God with us”
                          Matthew 1: 18-25




    “Along with my Christmas
 wishes I send a heartfelt thank
you for the generous check I just
  received. I was overwhelmed
at the gracious consideration and
   send forth blessing to all the
    members of our UCC who
  have shared with us retirees.”
                       “God with us”
                       Matthew 1: 18-25




“I pray daily for all who

“Please accept my sincere thanks
 for the wonderful advent gift. It
 is so gratifying to know that we
elders are still remembered as real
 persons, even though we cannot
  give the service to others as we
   would like. Our love for our
  friends and family is constant.
    God’s blessings to you all.”

                         Matthew 1: 18-25




   “I would like to say a big
   thank you for the check I
received recently. You seem
 to know exactly when they
are needed. I can assure you
  it will be put to very good
    use. Thank you again.”
                       “God with us”
                       Matthew 1: 18-25

  my oldest daughter who
   looked after the young
children in our family while
 I worked in ministry with
       my husband.”

the check to me from the Annual
Christmas Fund Offering, it will

       Season of Christmas.
  A time of remembering God’s
       love and that of love
        among humanity.”

                           Matthew 1: 18-25




     “Your Christmas letter
    was much appreciated; it
lifted my spirits – a needed lift.
     As always I was struck
     by the generosity of our
          denomination
      and its good people.”
                          “God with us”
                          Matthew 1: 18-25




 I am late in expressing my
gratitude for all the financial
support tendered me through
 the year, gifts which have
   made my life easier and
   my heart made lighter.
                             “God with us”
                             Matthew 1: 18-25




 “It is with the deepest appreciation
  and thanks to the Pension Boards
for the Christmas gift. At eighty-six
   and a widow, trying to keep up
    with house bills and taxes etc.
      this gift is so appreciated.
           Thank you again
           and best wishes”
                         “God with us”
                         Matthew 1: 18-25

to thank you for the monetary
gift given to me by UCBMA.

you enough! May God continue
blessing our ministries in many
  ways and paths. In faithful
         partnership.”

                              Matthew 1: 18-25




  “Thank you so much for the grant
this year! I am so grateful to you and
 others in my church who made this
possible! As I said in my application,
  God is calling me to be a mystic,
   writing me to house of prayer in
 the early morning homes and much
  of which is for you and my UCC
and Christians throughout the world.”
                         “God with us”
                         Matthew 1: 18-25




     “Thank you very much
    for the Christmas check
 I just received. How nice it
 is to be remembered by the
church that has been such an
   important part of my life
      for so many years.”
                         “God with us”
                         Matthew 1: 18-25




  “A very special thank you
for the recent check I received
 and is greatly appreciated. It
comes at very great time when
 needed. I needed a complete
   physical and did pass all
          very well.”
                             “God with us”
                             Matthew 1: 18-25




  “Thank you so much for the gift.
 It was heaven sent, especially this
   year. I had unexpected expense
    with the death of my sister, so
 I’m using the only for gifts for my
  daughter and grandson and other
family members and friends. Thank
you for remembering us, especially
       those of us who served
        small rural churches.”
                          “God with us”
                          Matthew 1: 18-25




“Words cannot express how
 much this means to us. The
financial help is so crucial to
  our being able to meet our
   obligations and we are
       grateful for it!”
                          “God with us”
                          Matthew 1: 18-25




     “We are so grateful for
    and touched by the UCC
 congregations and individuals
who have provided this funding
in recognition and appreciation
  of the faithful ministry of so
        many ministerial
        families like us.”
                               “God with us”
                               Matthew 1: 18-25




     “As a recently retired pastor,
      my wife and I are finding it
    takes a tremendous amount of
skill and lots of prayer to shift gears
  from the full-time working world,
to the world of the retired. Actually,
    I realize that Pastors are never
   supposed to retire. They just get
           re-treaded and go
        another 86,000 miles.”
                                “God with us”
                                Matthew 1: 18-25




 “Thanks to your generosity, both my
wife and I are closer to paying off debt
   to our friendly family dentist, who
  recently installed a beautiful crown
    in each of our mouths so that we
 could keep the “machines” properly
  furled for the next 85,000 miles we
each hope to travel. Who knows, these
may be the only crowns we may have
 or get, when the Perousia comes!!!”
                           “God with us”
                           Matthew 1: 18-25




 “As you can see, we are trying
  to keep a god sense of humor
   about all of this that we are
experiencing in the “new world”.
 Believe me, it lightens the load
  and makes the journey easier.
   Never-the-less, we both are
  tremendously grateful to you
    for your thoughtfulness.”
                       “God with us”
                       Matthew 1: 18-25




   “Your thoughtfulness
  makes it difficult to find
the proper words to express
  our gratitude. I guess the
  most meaningful way is
       to simply say,
        “thank you.”
                    “God with us”
                    Matthew 1: 18-25




  “The shepherds heard
  angels singing and so
 do we. As god’s angels,
  UCC, blesses us many,
many times. Thanks again”
                             “God with us”
                             Matthew 1: 18-25




  “I want to thank the Pension
Boards for the gift that I received
 from the Christmas Fund. I am
   grateful for your thoughtful
 concern for the needs of retired
 pastors like myself. These gifts
 of love come as a real blessing,
   and my gratitude can never
   be sufficiently expressed.”
                            “God with us”
                            Matthew 1: 18-25




   “Please except my sincere
 thanks for your very generous
gift. I appreciate very much that
 you have thought of me at this
 time. Your gift last year, made
 me realize that people do care
  for me and it helped to make
   the year a whole lot easier.
   As I am sure this year’s gift
            will also.”
                       “God with us”
                       Matthew 1: 18-25




“It is good to be thought
 of, especially by those
whom we do not know.
    This demonstrates
   that God is with us
 working in his people
with kindness and love.”
                         “God with us”
                         Matthew 1: 18-25




 “The 107 year old “Tradition”
  of sending a monetary gift to
those how have served the Lord
  and His church, has brought
   FANTASTIC RESPONSE,
   I pray; from ALL that have
   received from this Fund, at
   this blessed Christmas time
      of our Christian year.”
                         “God with us”
                         Matthew 1: 18-25




   “INDEED, this comes to us
 as a means of making the time
of Christmas SO MUCH MORE
   JOYFUL. It is with YOUR
 KINDNESS that we can now
   CELEBRATE and SHARE
  the WARMTH of Christmas
     in our HOME as well as
       with our FAMILY!!”
                     “God with us”
                     Matthew 1: 18-25




   “I THANK YOU for
making this ALL possible…
  and THINKING of US
 who have served the Lord
    & his church these
       many years.”
