Disciple Women Project November 2016
Brrrrr!! Have you ever been cold, bone chilling cold? No home to go to – due to hard times, floods,tornadoes, earthquakes and hurricanes? Or refugees fleeing their homeland displaced by war?
A blanket can provide warmth and comfort. It can be a tent for shelter, a stretcher for an elderly or injured person, or just a carryall for all you and your family have left.
Have you given thought to how blessed we are? Yes, am sure you have…
If we care – if we give – Church World Service will provide and distribute blankets here in the United States and in countries aboard for us at the cost of $10 each. Let us place a heart for you on our display blanket in the narthex.
Last year, you gave 44 blankets to grateful strangers. Can we reach, or maybe even surpass that number? We invite everyone to join us. Special envelopes are available in the bulletin and on the table in the narthex. Thank you for the love, caring and generosity you show to strangers. It’s not easy to keep asking you for money – but we love you for it and so does God. Read more.
October 2016 Newsletter
The Thanksgiving Offering benefits the Colleges, Universities, Seminaries, and Divinity Houses affiliated with the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ). These learning communities are an extension of the church, challenging students to understand and respond to God's call to serve.
From the very beginnings of the movement, Disciples have founded institutions of higher learning, encouraging students in their intellectual pursuits. The Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) is still committed to higher education. Your gift to the Thanksgiving Offering helps underwrite the education of students attending one of our fourteen undergraduate institutions and our seven seminaries or divinity houses.
Thousands of students have attended the Colleges and Universities of the Christian Church receiving both a quality education and the opportunity to remain within our Disciple's heritage. Your financial gift provides scholarships and support for spiritual life offices. By giving to the Thanksgiving Offering you are investing in our students and helping keep education costs down.
