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!
 
  

Lighthouse on the Lawn

Lighthouse Ministries held it 13th annual Lighthouse on the Lawn on July 3, 2014. This event runs in conjunction with Red, White and Boom in downtown Columbus. It is not only a fun, inexpensive time for many families in the local community but there are hundreds who drive in to enjoy the food, games and watching Red, White and Boom on the hill behind the church. We have a prayer tent available for those wanting to leave request by the entrance and a brochure about the church is offered to everyone. This year over 1,000 hot dogs, over 800 hamburgers, and 75 dozen ears of corn were served plus walking tacos, bags of cotton candy, snow cones and sodas.

It is a way the church tries to get people on their property to interact with them and love them for Jesus with the hope that those who do not know Him will sense Him in the way they are treated. The prayer of the church is that when the attendees are ready to learn more about Him, they will remember Lighthouse.
