“For we are co-workers in God’s service; you are God’s field, God’s building.”– 1 Corinthians 3:9
Our March special offering is split evenly between the United Church of Christ’s One Great Hour of Sharing and the Disciples of Christ’s Week of Compassion. When we give to Week of Compassion and One Great Hour of Sharing, our gift travels to places where disaster or poverty has caused great suffering. Through our generosity, we empower communities to grow new kinds of crops in a changing climate; we support youth education and vocational training; we rebuild homes and churches and help provide needed supplies after disasters; and we empower women with skills to support their family and neighbors. In these and so many other places, we are the co-workers in the kindom of God. Building, planting, watering … and trusting that God gives growth to all good gifts shared in faith. Where God’s people have suffered loss, we are invited to invest in their future.
This month’s special offering will be received on Sunday, March 1. Niles Discovery Church receives a special offering every month. With so many varied opportunities to give, you may need to choose which ones are most meaningful to you.
Thanks to your generosity, our February special offering for Blankets+ raised $1,026.20.
