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!
 
  

Get Involved

Do you feel like God is calling you to get involved? We have programs available that just may be what you are looking for.

Here are some of the ways you can be involved.

Short-Term Missions

The Missionary Department helps facilitate ministry teams that minister on the field for one to two weeks, giving members the opportunity to experience missions firsthand while serving alongside missionaries and national Christians. Whether you want to do construction, fix things, lead a Vacation Bible School or kids club, take care of orphans, provide medical care, play basketball, cook, or pray, there's a team for you!

Kid Power

Kid Power is all about involving children in the Great Commission!  It is a monthly ministry program and cirriculum that teaches kids about what missionaries do, how to pray for missionaries, how they can support missionaries around the world, and how they can serve in their own community.  Each year, children from across the denomination band together to raise money for the Kid Power Offering for missions.  Kids collect spare change and donations throughout the year and then join their offering with offerings from other churches.  The Kid Power Offering regularly raises $80,000 - $100,000 annually. 

Advent Offering

Each year during the Advent season churches from across the denomination take a special offering to support the ministry of the General Missionary Department.  This offering provides crucial support for missionaries on the field by funding special projects, covering unforeseen ministry expenses, and supporting efforts to raise up stateside ministry champions. 

Life Investments

Life Investments are a gift of $1500 or more which is given in the name of a specific missionary. The gift is invested in interest yielding accounts. That interest is withdrawn semi-annually and used in ministry by the designated missionary. The principal is never withdrawn, so the interest continues to give to missions for years to come.

Mission Minded Men

Mission Minded Men (MMM) is an organization of men throughout the CCCU who are committed to spreading the Gospel to the uttermost parts of the earth. Organized into chapters through local churches MMM makes an impact by praying, serving, fund raising and joining work teams to mission fields.

Each year MMM hosts a banquet with a major offering to support a specific project on one of the CCCU and WGM fields. Annual projects in the past have assisted in building churches, schools, Bible schools, and medical facilities.
