Reconciliation Ministry Special Offering

The Reconciliation Ministry Special Offering will be received this Sunday and October 10 during worship. The theme this year is “Revealing God’s Justice: The Time is Always Ripe to Do What is Right.”

Reconciliation Ministry is the church wide-mission fund which supports programs and program partners that enable full human flourishing for everyone in every community. As followers of Christ, we believe every life is precious and valued in God’s beloved community. We believe the Christian Church (Disciple of Christ) is uniquely equipped to encourage racial equity and justice in the communities where we worship and serve. Your generosity supports our denominational AND regional efforts to become the anti-racist/pro-reconciliation body of Christ we long to be.

Next week, our congregation will celebrate Reconciliation Sunday with a special emphasis during worship.

Help Our Afghan Refugees

Can you imagine having to leave your home with only what you could carry and flying to a completely new country to start all over again? That is the situation in which many Afghans find themselves, as they have fled their homes during the recent crisis.

Disciples of Christ have a long history of helping refugees and are now partnering with Team Rubicon to help provide much-needed essential items for those coming to Camp Atterbury, which is south of Indy. There are two ways you could help this effort:

1) Make purchases for clothing and baby items from the Amazon Wish List to be sent directly to the Team Rubicon Warehouse by clicking HERE. (The address for this warehouse is not being disclosed for safety reasons.)

2) Bring feminine pads and/or baby diapers and wipes to Hazelwood, which Rev. Pamela will deliver to another Disciples minister who has permission to deliver to the warehouse. She will take donations on Tuesday, October 5. And, if still needed, on Sunday, October 17 and Tuesday, October 26. (You may also make monetary donations which will be used to purchase these items.)
