2016 Christmas Offering

2015 Christmas Offering

The Invitation at Christmas is to BELIEVE AGAIN.

Received in most congregations on December 11 and 18

The Word from the church is to Believe in a Deeper Hope that moves beyond the “wrappings” of Christmas around us. We proclaim a Hope that brings Good News, Joy and Compassion for all of God’s people. THIS DEEPER HOPE IS MADE REAL IN ALL OF OUR REGIONS AS WE:

  • Assist congregations and leaders in claiming their unique mission and ministry, and provide resources and support.
  • Call, commission and ordain new pastors, and support and equip all pastors for their ministries.
  • Revitalize existing congregations and plan for new congregations.
  • Connect Regional Disciples to give witness to ministries of justice, hope and compassion.
  • Provide camps, conferences and retreats where children and youth find hope and Christ’s love and a community of faith that embraces “everyone.”
  • Make visible the care for all of God’s family through ministries of reconciliation and anti-racism.
  • Call and equip passionate leaders for today’s church.
  • Provide pastoral care for clergy and congregations.

The Christmas Special Day offering supports all of these and many other ministries of our Region. Your generous gifts make a difference in our shared ministries in the Region.
