Donor Appreciation Dinners

Every year we are pleased to honor our gracious and generous supporters by hosting dinners where we present three awards — the Ben M. Herbster Award to a devoted donor; the Spirit Award to an enthusiastic volunteer; and the Diakonie Award to a supportive church congregation.

Bruce and Betty Angell

Bruce Angell speaks fondly and in exquisite detail about the time he met his wife, Betty. The date was September 18, 1966, just a few days into their freshman year at Defiance (Ohio) College. Bruce had come to Defiance focused on becoming the first in his family to graduate from college. Betty was a Massachusetts native whose United Church of Christ pastor had recommended she attend Defiance.

The 2014 Employee Giving Campaign demonstrated employees’ dedication to our mission of serving older adults! The campaign, one of six annual appeals conducted by the Advancement Department, proved to be the most successful ever, raising over $91,000 in pledges and contributions.

People putting money into the collection plate

Placing money in an offering plate can be as important in a worship service as prayer, preaching and singing. Giving an offering provides a way to participate in worship, as an expression of gratitude for what God has already done, and as a response to God’s call to take part in the work of the community of faith sharing God’s love.

With shopping season upon us once again, United Church Homes announces a new way to donate, simply by doing what you already do. When shopping online, try AmazonSmile instead of purchasing from Amazon.

George and Martha were married 52 years in 2006 when they moved to Trinity Community in Beavercreek, Ohio. When Martha passed away a few months later, George found himself living alone.

The Bible tells us that hearing the angel’s news of great joy, the shepherds were inspired to leave their fields and go to Bethlehem to see the joy of the Christ-child firsthand. People of faith have been inspired to bear witness in the midst of their day-to-day lives, sharing that joy with others ever since.
