Our congregation recently raised $1,137 for the One Great Hour of Sharing/Week of Compassion special offering which funds, among other things, diaster response organizations such as Presbyterian Disaster Assistance and the Disciples’ Compassion Response Fund.
However, since our collection, we’ve learned of two devastating earthquakes which have struck Nepal, killing thousands and displacing millions. In light of this tragedy, we are encouraging members and friends of CCU to consider making additional OGHS/WOC contributions. Checks can be made out directly to CCU (with One Great of Sharing, Week of Compassion or Disaster Relief in the memo line) and dropped off in our office or Sunday offering plate. Or for those who wish to give electronically, follow these links to make a contribution:
We are lucky to be part of two denominations which help us live out a Christian witness through compassionate, immediate and effective disaster response. Let’s do all we can to be a part of it!
