Community Matters

Share a Meal

Everyone is invited to our weekly potlucks at 6pm from late-spring up until Christmas. Bring nothing but your appetite. Want something more than a full stomach? You’re welcome to stay for music at 7pm. You can also join us Saturday mornings (beginning again in the spring) for a full breakfast from 7am to 10am.

Share Time or Money

At the heart of Three Steeple’s mission is a deep concern for the well-being of our neighbors, whether they live across the street or across the world. Below are some organizations and initiatives our congregation has supported in the recent past.

Interested in learning more? When you are done browsing this list, take a look at some other worthwhile causes our members support individually with their time or money at the sharing opportunities page.

  • Church World Service
    Church World Service is people reaching out to neighbors in need near and far–not with a hand out, but a hand up. We’re working with partners in the U.S. and around the world to build interfaith and intercultural coalitions to eradicate hunger and poverty and promote peace and justice. Together, we’re supporting sustainable grassroots development, disaster relief, and refugee assistance.
  • Hope House
    Established in 1992, Hope House serves over 8,000 meals a month… as many as 3 daily meals, to our guests. The hungry and homeless of the inner-city Utica area have come to rely upon at least one daily meal at Hope House.
  • Neighbors in Need
    Neighbors in Need is a special mission offering of the United Church of Christ that supports ministries of justice and compassion throughout the United States. One-third of funds support the Council for American Indian Ministry. Two-thirds of the offering is used by the UCC’s Justice and Witness Ministries to support a variety of justice initiatives, advocacy efforts, and direct service projects.
  • One Great Hour of Sharing
    One Great Hour of Sharing is an offering that makes the love of Christ real for individuals and communities around the world who suffer the effects of disaster, conflict, or severe economic hardship, and for those who serve them through gifts of money and time. Today, projects are underway in more than 100 countries.
