Week of Compassion offering

Week of Compassion Offering, February 16th

In your church today, you have the opportunity to build something miraculous, to plant seeds of new life. Where God’s people have suffered loss, you are invited to invest in the future. When you give to Week of Compassion, your gift travels to places where disaster or poverty has caused great suffering. Through your generosity, we empower communities to grow new kinds of crops in a changing climate; we support youth education and vocational training; we rebuild homes and churches and help provide needed supplies after disasters; and we empower women with skills to support their family and their neighbors. In these and so many other places, we are co-workers in the kingdom of God. Building, planting, watering… and trusting that God gives growth to all good gifts shared in faith. –(Excerpted from insert from Week of Compassion)
