Nov. 13 and 20 the Disciples of Christ are collecting a special Thanksgiving Offering. The Thanksgiving Offering supports Disciples colleges, universities and theological institutions. This offering provides a direct connection to 15 colleges and universities, seven seminaries and theological programs. Gifts from this offering continue the Disciples tradition of developing leaders for our communities and the church. What do these colleges and universities of The Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) have in common? These institutions, including Eureka College here in Illinois, enjoy:
- A commitment to academic excellence and the liberal arts;
- An environment of open inquiry;
- An inclusive, welcoming community that respects all people and cultures;
- A focus on character, service, and leadership; and
- A passion for social justice.
The Thanksgiving offering supports everything from scholarships, to religious life offices, to faculty growth and development. By giving, you are helping our institutions invest in students as they prepare themselves to become leaders.
Please give generously. Your gift makes a difference in the lives of our students, and it makes a difference in the world. You may place this special offering in the brass bowl in the Narthex area or simply give online or mail to the church. Please note DMF Thanksgiving Offering on your contribution.
