Week of Compassion Gift

The special Week of Compassion offering was officially collected throughout the Disciples of Christ denomination on February 19 and 26. Our church participated and while we do not know how much was collected yet, we know that it was at a minimum $225.00! Our Ministry Council decided to give our February Mission Action donation to "Week of Compassion" due to the relief efforts desperately needed around the world.

As the relief, refugee, and development mission fund of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), Week of Compassion works with partners to alleviate suffering throughout the world. They are in communication with continuing relief efforts in Ukraine and now in Turkey and Syria in the aftermath of the earthquake. You can find out more about their work at https://www.weekofcompassion.org

From the website: "Week of Compassion is more than a week. It is a ministry of the whole Church, reaching those in need "around the world, around the year.” Any time we respond to a need in the world, we bear witness to the unity of our table, faithfully sharing the gifts that we have as an expression of Christ's love. In working together with partners, we represent the Disciples of Christ commitment to unity, making our resources reach farther and growing our impact on a global scale."

If you want to make a donation, you can do so through the Week of Compassion website, through the FCC Vallejo https://vallejochristian.org/donate, or send a check made out to First Christian Church of Vallejo to the office with the memo line "Week of Compassion".

Thank you for your contributions!
