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!

Purpose of the Stewardship Department

The Stewardship Department was developed by the General Board of Trustees to serve the denomination. William T. Bonham serves as Chief Legal Counsel and is a frequent speaker in CCCU churches on the subject of planned giving (remembering the Work of the Lord in your will or trust).

Bill has been focused on estate planning, probate and trust in his law practice since 1988. Bill is licensed to practice law in Ohio and Florida. He also serves as an adjunct professor of law at Capital University Law School, where he teaches probate.

Private consultations are available to assist individuals in the preparation of wills and trusts. All confidential information shared with Bill remains solely in the possession of Bill and is not shared with any other denomination official.

The Stewardship Department will conduct training seminars for church budgeting, IRS compliance issues, and personal finance.
