Every year at Shawnee Community Christian Church we give a special gift at Christmas to celebrate the love of God through Jesus’ birth. It’s a tradition that we return to again and again, going above and beyond our normal giving to support organizations or missions that are supporting our brothers and sisters here in our community and around the world.
This year, our Christmas Is Not Your Birthday Offering goal is to collect $2,020 for Disciples Global Mission and as a church complete 2,020 hours of serving our community.
Help us reach our goal of serving 2,020 hours in our community. Do you serve on Monday evenings at Micah Ministries each week? Or maybe as a family you spent time purchasing cold weather items like gloves and hats for families in our community. Make sure to complete the Gift of Time form or a Gift of Time card on Sunday so we can count up all our hours of service. We will be collecting hours through the end of January.
Disciples Global Mission is a common missional witness of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) and the United Church of Christ. Global Mission works with approximately 290 faith-based international partners in close to 90 countries. Through our giving we will support ministries to refugees and immigrants, help winterize homes in Syria, fight human trafficking throughout the world, and provide health care to women and children living in East Timor.
