Disciples Mission Fund is the common fund of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ). Disciples Mission Fund supports 72 ministries of wholeness as close as your local congregation and reaching around the globe. As a Global Mission church, we understand that equipping congregations for mission includes learning from, learning with and offer support our partners beyond the borders of the United States and Canada.
Special Days in the life of the church often allow us to focus our worship, celebrations and fellowship around moments that are central to our faith. Disciples Mission Fund Special Day Offerings also provide an opportunity to highlight specific ministries as part of our faith celebrations.
6 special offerings:
- Week of Compassion: Disaster response, humanitarian aid, sustainable development and promotion of mission opportunities
- Easter: General Ministries of the church
- Pentecost: New Church Development
- Thanksgiving: Disciples colleges
- Christmas: Regional ministries
- Reconciliation: Build just communities by breaking down the walls within our church which separate us
What Can I Do?
1. PRAY for each of the ministries support by the 6 annual offerings.
2. LEARN: Visit Disciplesmissionfund.org to learn more about the upcoming offerings and the purpose of each one.
3. EDUCATE: Choose an offering (or two) and be a spokesperson! Conduct a moment for mission about the offering. The church office receives re-sources for each offering (posters & flyers) approximately 2 months in advance of the offering.
4. DONATE: Cash or Check: Make checks payable to WGCC and write the name of the offering in the memo line. During the 2 weeks of the year that each offering is highlighted, there will be special envelopes in the pews for these donations.
