More than We Can Imagine - Week of Compassion

More than We Can Imagine - Week of Compassion

"More than We Can Imagine" is the theme of the 2019 Week of Compassion special offering received this month in many congregations February 17 and 24.

That theme, based on Ephesians 3:20, reminds us that we are not alone in our imagining a better world for all God’s children. It is God’s imagination that fuels and empowers ours. God imagines a world where:
• No one is left to face the ravages of natural disaster alone – neighbor helps neighbor, stranger helps stranger – we are the church together!
• Even if things will never quite be the same after a disaster, God can work through all events to bring new life, and new hope
• Clean and abundant water and ample sanitation facilities are available to every person
• Work brings security from hunger and the land is treated with respect
• Families displaced from their homes are able to build new lives
• Women are no longer subject to discrimination and gender-based violence.

The Week of Compassion special offering supports our Church's relief, refugee and development mission fund. Your gift supports Week of Compassion's work all around the world, helping victims of natural disasters, war, and more, rebuild and strengthen their communities.

A variety of worship resources are available online to help you and your congregation tell the Week of Compassion story as you prepare to receive this special offering.
