Worldwide Communion Day
Sunday, October 3
The first Sunday of October has become a time when Christians in every culture break bread and pour the cup to remember and affirm Christ as the Head of the Church and known as Worldwide Communion Day. It is customary for our church to take a second offering when we receive communion and give it to a local or international organization in need.
Next Sunday, October 3, our communion offering will support two global tragedies: assisting Afghanistan refugees and rebuilding Haiti after the recent 7.2 magnitude earthquake and the tropical storm caused widespread damage. The deacons are praying for a $10,000 gift - $5,000 to assist our sisters and brothers in each part of the world.
Pray for the Afghanistan refugees, the rebuilding of Haiti, and those displaced. And for all of our brothers and sisters on the ground assisting both of these areas.
