Creede Community Church, UCC
Creede Community Church emphasizes the “community” part of our name by focusing on local, regional, and national mission efforts, both financially and hands-on.
As a “5 for 5” congregation we also participate in the special mission offerings of the United Church of Christ.
Every once in a while, we have a mission dinner to raise money for a worthy cause. Dates vary, so watch for details.
We collected 1,287 pairs
of brand new socks for La Puente:
a new record!

Creede Community Church administers Helping Hands which, along with the Ladies Aid Society collects and disburses funds for those in need. For a detailed description, see Mission Outreach Committee and Helping Hands (pdf).
We mobilize congregants, partner churches, and community members in disaster relief trips whenever we can. Our ever popular mission dinners help raise the funds.
