Meeting Needs Around the World
Jesus commissioned his followers to go into all the world with the Gospel's good news, not just their neighborhoods. Convinced that the Gospel is as much service as it is preaching, we engage in the following ministries to people beyond the Quad Cities:
Our two adult Sunday groups jointly maintain a mission fund from which they donate monthly to the international relief agency Compassion International, as the sponsor of a teenage resident of the Dominican Republic.
Operation Christmas Child
Each November we collect small gifts and personal care items which we organize into gender- and age-appropriate gift boxes through Operation Christmas Child (OCC), an outreach ministry of Samaritan’s Purse. Our boxes are then taken to a local collection point for distribution through OCC’s international network.
Special Day offerings
Six times a year we accept offerings that support various denominational causes and concerns. From natural disasters anywhere in the world, to Disciples of Christ-related educational institutions, and many others, our special day offerings make a difference.
