While the timing and resources available will be unchanged for congregations, you may notice a theme emerging in the Special Day Offerings of Disciples Mission Fund (DMF) this year. “Rejoice” is woven throughout the Easter season’s lectionary texts, and as we celebrate the culmination of the 2020 Vision, we see so many causes for rejoicing throughout the year.
This theme provides opportunities for all supported ministries to share causes for celebration in their work. The logos will use the same theme but use different colors to differentiate between the offerings.
While these Special Day Offerings provide opportunities to highlight the work of specific ministries through Disciples Mission Fund, they are distinct from Disciples’ core support of DMF, which supports more than 70 ministries across the whole Church. Learn how your congregation’s gifts to DMF are distributed across the life of our Church.
For each Special Day Offering, free resources are provided to congregations:
- Bulletin inserts (come in packs of 50)
- Offering envelopes (come in packs of 50; shipped twice a year at Easter and Thanksgiving)
- Posters (come in packs of 3)
Each offering webpage will also have a variety of other worship materials available for you to use, like PowerPoint slide images, videos, stories about benefitting ministries, and liturgical resources.
