2012 Christmas Offering Raises More than $27,000
Each year, a special Christmas Offering provides our congregation an opportunity to reach out and make a difference in the lives of others. The outreach theme for Christmas 2012, Feeding the Hungry, describes the activities of two organizations that the Outreach Council selected to be recipients of the 2012 Christmas offering: Global Ministries and the United Church of Christ in Mozambique’s Goigoi Farm Development Project, and locally Micah Ministries.
The total raised for these two organizations was $27,154.23.
The Goigoi Farm Development Project will serve as a source of food and employment for the people in the community. It is expected to provide food for 200-250 families whose current food situation is tenuous at best, with families currently scraping out an existence which is heavily impacted by malnutrition and hunger. The project is receiving support from the United Church of Christ of Zimbabwe (UCCZ). UCCZ has long been a recipient of mission funding and their help for this project in Mozambique is a way for them to reach out and help others.
Micah Ministries. Most of our congregation is familiar with the work that Micah Ministries does to feed people in the Northeast area of Kansas City, and many have volunteered to help with this ministry, but some may not realize that the number of people needing food assistance has grown and grown. Micah is now serving over 900 plates of food every Monday. Country Club Christian Church has been supporting Micah Ministries since 2002, and our continued support is vital if those who depend on the ministry are to be served.
Our annual Christmas Offering is a way for our church to extend its reach and to carry out the Christian mission to help others in need. The two projects we have selected are making a difference in the lives of many people, and they deserve our support.
