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!

Churches Clean Up After Irene

On August 27th and 28th, much of the eastern United States felt the effects of Hurricane Irene.  This powerful storm caused widespread power outages, flooding, and property damage.  Several local CCCU churches were effected by the storm.  In New York, damage was reported by Brooklyn CCCU, Cascade Valley CCCU, and our church plant in Staten Island.  In Maryland, Salisbury CCCU and Henderson CCCU reported property damage. 

The churches in Staten Island, Brooklyn, and Henderson all experienced flooding.  Additionally, the Brooklyn congregation also had a tree down on their property.  Salisbury CCCU suffered the greatest damage.  There was flooding in the church's basement and a falling tree put a hole in the roof of the youth building.  Cascade Valley CCCU has experienced an extended power outage and is still without power.  Electric service is not projected to return until September 4th. 

Pray for these congregations as they clean up and minister to their neighbors in aftermath of this storm.
