RED CROSS BLOOD DRIVE
It’s that time again! The Red Cross Bloodmobile is scheduled to be at the First Christian Church on April 27th from noon until 6 p.m. and April 28th from 8 a.m. until noon. Please take the time to schedule an appointment to donate. Call 1-800-REDCROSS (1-800-733-2767), or visit redcrossblood.org to make an appointment or for more information.
Many time slots are still available, but the sooner you schedule, the more likely you will get the time slot you prefer. And don’t forget that you can speed up the donation process by using Rapid Pass the day of your appointment. If you require assistance in scheduling an appointment, please call Dean Cramer at 778-6483.
As always, walk-ins are always welcome, but appointments get first priority. We hope to see you all at the blood drive, and bring a friend – show them how easy it is to save lives. Read More.
Week of Compassion Special Offering February 19 and 26.
Week of Compassion is the Disciples witness in the face of natural or manmade disasters.

The Special Day offering is the only church-wide effort to provide general funding for the ministry. Week of Compassion offering will be received February 19 and 26, 2017.
As you make your offering to Week of Compassion this year, may your worship be joyful; may your sharing be delightfully abundant; may God be made glad by your cheerful generosity! Special offering envelopes will be in the sanctuary, or you may include your offering in your regular envelope – just write on the check or the envelope the amount for each offering.
