Creede Community Church emphasizes the “community” part of our name in the widest sense by focusing on local, regional, and national mission efforts, both financially and hands-on.
As a “5 for 5” church we also participate in the special mission offerings of the United Church of Christ.
We mobilize congregants, partner churches and community members in disaster relief trips whenever we can. Our ever popular mission dinners help raise the funds.

Mission Outreach/Helping Hands
Chairs: Linda Walker and Judy Blanch.
Through Mission Outreach and Helping Hands, we implement many of the direct mission efforts of the church. These include overseeing the mission budget and providing hands-on opportunities for service work locally and beyond. Helping Hands, along with Ladies Aid, provides funds for local needs. For a detailed description, see Mission Outreach Committee and Helping Hands (pdf).
Creede Community Church administers Helping Hands, which - along with the Ladies Aid Society collects and disburses funds for those in need. Helping Hands also makes available food to those who need it, and the congregation of CCC is encouraged to bring food donations to augment our community food bank.
