Today’s offering is for African Widow & Orphan Support. 

This special offering is to provide financial assistance to the mission of African Widow and Orphan Support to assist in rehabilitate violated, traumatized women and children whose husbands and fathers were murdered by the Boko Haram terror group and more recently by nomadic Fulani terrorists in northern Nigeria. The offering is also to assist Pastors and their congregations. Their request is to pray for these wounded Children of God. The CRC as a part of the Sudan United Mission and coordination with Sudan Interior Mission brought the Gospel of Jesus Christ to Nigeria beginning in the 1939. In turn, converts of the mission shared that blessed Gospel with numerous others who had not yet heard. For the CRC Nigeria became its largest mission effort in finances, in employed personnel, and in the largest number of converts, hundreds of thousands, if not millions. Help us to continue to be God’s grace, bringing life to children of the faith who God reached generations past through CRC World Mission.

Sunday, July 5th 

our offering will be for Chaplaincy and Care Ministry. Chaplaincy is a healing, reconciling ministry of God, an expression and extension of God’s activity and mission in the world. It provides pastoral ministry in specialized settings to people who are hurting or in crisis, uprooted or dislocated. Through the presence of chaplains, the very settings in which they minister become surprising places of grace.

Chaplains are exceptional, well-trained ministers of the Word or commissioned pastors who serve in specialized ministries beyond the walls of the church. Chaplains are specially trained, called and ordained by the church, and sent by Jesus Christ to provide spiritual care to people in pain or spiritual distress.
