UNITED THANK OFFERING

Diane Nichols, Holy Trinity, Southbridge UTO Coordinator

United Thank Offering (UTO) is a ministry of the Episcopal Church for the mission of the whole church. Through United Thank Offering, men, women, and children nurture the habit of giving daily thanks to God. These prayers of thanksgiving start when we recognize and name our many daily blessings. Those who participate in UTO discover that thankfulness leads to generosity. United Thank Offering is entrusted to promote thank offerings, to receive the offerings, and to distribute the UTO monies to support mission and ministry throughout the Episcopal Church and in invited Provinces of the Anglican Communion in the developing world.

United Thank Offering

Diane Nichols, Holy Trinity, Southbridge UTO Coordinator

“You are never too young or too old to count your blessings and share your thankful spirit with others.”

Every penny, nickel, dime, quarter and dollar offered in thanks through UNITED THANK OFFERING is given to God’s mission in the world.  Every coin and bill transforms lives in the United States and around the world.  Your blessings become blessings for others.

“A seed-small tough and rough-sits in the dirt and darkness. It is waiting for the rain, whose liquid balm will seep into the soil’s depths, embrace the seed and encourage it too grow, far beyond its small, rough shell and out into the sun.  We thank you Oh God, that we are like seeds and that you are like the rain, coaxing us out of our little,  gritty lives, helping us to extend, stretch and grow. Bless us as we offer you our gratitude with our lips. And give us the courage to fully offer you our lives, so that you may nourish them with your loving, living will. Amen”
