Thanksgiving Offering

Thanksgiving Offering

...a movement for wholeness in a fragmented world

2019 Thanksgiving Offering

From the very beginnings of the movement, Disciples have founded institutions of higher learning, encouraging students in their intellectual pursuits.  The Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) is still committed to higher education.  Currently over 52,000 students attend our fifteen Disciples related colleges and universities or 7 seminaries and divinity houses.  And in the past twelve months, over 12,000 students have graduated from these fine schools.

Your gift to the Thanksgiving offering helps to support the work of our institutions of higher learning in many ways: financially supporting Disciples related schools, providing undergraduate scholarships and support for spiritual life offices, and providing scholarships and support for those pursuing theological education.

The Disciples Mission Fund does the work of bring the Church together, “connecting us to the life-giving and life-saving work we have been called to do.”

Your gift to the Disciples Mission Fund (Thanksgiving offering) is one way we can share God’s love to the ends of the earth.

We will be taking up the Thanksgiving offering again this Sunday.  Consider your donation.
