Nearly 3 Million Dollars of Medical Debt ELIMINATED

RIP logo.png

Two United Church of Christ congregations -- St. Anthony Park UCC and Falcon Heights Church UCC -- decided to love our neighbors in a big way in 2021. We partnered up, pooled resources, launched a campaign, and received over $28,000! We sent all of the money to RIP Medical Debt, an organization that purchases old, long-standing medical debt for pennies on the dollar. The result?

SAP UCC and Falcon Heights UCC eliminated $2.8 MILLION DOLLARS of medical debt, for over TWO THOUSAND HOUSEHOLDS, in FIVE STATES -- Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota, Texas and Georgia!

Why did we do this?
+ to counteract some of the economic and racial inequities in our country
+ to engage in a big-impact endeavor
+ to prioritize the common good during the pandemic
+ to relieve the burden, shame and anxiety of people who have long-standing debt

Alleluia! New Life! Thanks be to God!

Classroom Clean-up - Sunday, August 29

Our Godly Play classroom, 3-4-5- classroom and Youth Room have not been used (or cleaned) for over a year. Let’s tidy up! Are you able and willing to help spruce up our classrooms before our faith formation programming begins in September?

There are a variety of tasks: wipe down surfaces, vacuum carpets, clean off chalk boards and bulletin boards, dispose of old stuff, sharpen pencils, recycle, create safe, welcoming space. The Board of Christian Education will provide cleaning supplies. Many hands make for lighter work, and the “Before and After” effect is gratifying. Sunday, August 29, Noon to 1 PM.
