Study Option 1: Bearing Witness in the Kin-dom

In Jesus’ own words, he came to bring good news to the poor, release the captives, restore sight to the blind, and to let the oppressed go free. What is the responsibility of the church to follow Christ’s example in word and deed? While these times might feel particularly turbulent, society has always confronted the church with challenging issues where she has had to discern how God was calling her. The church’s track record in these moments is far from perfect. The purpose of this study is to help the church and its members discern our call and bear witness to the will of God for a more just world.

Donations for Mission Giving Projects

The funds received will be divided equally between:

CUMAC’s mission is in fighting hunger through a holistic, trauma-informed approach. CUMAC provides groceries (fresh produce, dairy, meat, and other staples) along with necessities for families and individuals in need. They also “rescue” food from large facilities/stores where the food is nearing expiration date by picking up and directly delivering those items to families in need.

Respond’s mission meets the needs for their community. In 2021, this includes childcare services in six locations and an automotive program. Historically, they have provided daycare for seniors and homeless men. Their culinary program will reopen post-COVID-19, and they are in need of PPE supplies and diapers.
