         Reconciliation Offering

            September 24 & October 1

Your gift to Reconciliation Ministry is transforming lives and strengthening Christ's witness in the world – the witness that we love one another, even as Christ continues to love us!  Your gift helps fund the Disciples’ mission to become a pro-reconciling and anti-racist church through leadership development, curriculum for dialogue and learning, intentional conversation, and partnerships within the Church and with our communities– be a part of the healing through your offering.

                 23rd Annual Peninsula Crop Walk

The Crop Walk will be held on Sunday, October 8th at Grace United Methodist Church.  Registration will begin at 1:15pm.  If you would like to participate as Walker please let me know.  I hope to have the packets very soon.  Everyone can participate as no donation is too small.  I challenge everyone to set aside $1.00 a day for the month of September and donate that to a Walker of your choice.  Checks should be made payable to First Christian Church and notated "Crop Walk".  We will receive all donations Sunday, October 1st.  Additionally, Thrive Peninsula will be at this event again this year and will take your donated, used shoes.  I will set up a donation box for shoes in the Narthex. 

Thank you in advance for your continued support of this outreach ministry, "ending hunger one step at a time".
