The Churches of Christ in Christian Union

Our 2017 Advent Offering

Last year was our first experience of having an Advent Offering which replaced our February Sacrifice Offering. What a thrill it was to receive nearly $67,000! This offering helps in providing disaster relief when such events occur on our mission fields. It also assists in the operational costs. This past year funds from this account enabled us to send finances to Yemen for the Humanitarian Relief and just recently, to our churches in the Caribbean region due to the damage from the hurricane.

Our theme for the offering this year is The Way in a Manger. Truly, He is the way and the truth and the life… John 14:6. Let’s not hold back in sharing The Way with friends, neighbors and those around the world. You may not feel called to another country to share The Way, but we can all lighten the load of those who have responded to the call God has given them. Let’s work at making this offering the best yet! The goal this year is to raise $75,000.

Your gift will make a difference today!

Loyalty to God

Several weeks after our last General Council, I received a phone call from Dr. Melvin Maxwell, one of CCCU's most outstanding leaders.  He had heard about some of the decisions made at the Council and he was thrilled with the results.  He then said,  I would like to suggest that we take an issue of The Evangelical Advocate and dedicate it to the subject of loyalty.  So we have decided to take this issue and write articles on loyalty.  Our prayer is that you will be challenged and blessed by these thoughts that deal with this very important subject.
