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!
 
  

Donate Now for Hurricane Maria Relief in Dominica and St. Croix

In September, the Caribbean islands of Dominica and St. Croix were hit with two major hurricanes, including Hurricane Maria which struck the island of Dominica as a Category 5 hurricane with sustained winds of over 150 miles per hour.  Both islands were devasted by these storms.  There are sixteen CCCU churches in Dominica and one CCCU church in St. Croix.  Nearly every church was damaged, and many churches were severely damaged.  

CCCU is raising funds and mobilizing relief efforts to aid the recovery in Dominica and St. Croix.  $7,000 in emergency supplies were delivered in October.  Rev. Steve Palmer will depart for Dominica on November 7th to assess the damage work out the logistics for work teams which will help rebuild churches in Dominica.  Money raised will be used to purchase building materials needed to repair the damaged churches.  Following Rev. Palmer's visit, more information will be provided about work team needs.

The situation in Dominica and St. Croix is critical.  Would you join us in giving to this great need?  To make a contribution, you can give online via the "Donate" button below, or you can mail your gift to The Churches of Christ in Christian Union, 1553 Lancaster Pike, Circleville, OH 43113, marked for Hurricane Relief.
