Today is Ash Wednesday and marks the first of 40 days of Lent. There is still time to take advantage of two special opportunities during the Lenten season to deepen your faith and further understand the work and witness of your general ministry partners by signing up for Easter Offering resources.
One of those opportunities allows you to receive a daily devotion, story or prayer from an Easter Offering partner by going to: www.disciplesmissionfund.org
The second is a Lenten Bible study written by Dr. Richard Lowery. The Bible study was mailed to each congregation, but is also available for download at www.disciplesmissionfund.org. Additional materials, such as clipart, are on the website for your use in promoting the 2011 Easter Offering.
The Annual Easter Offering supports the General and Racial/Ethnic Ministries of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in the United States and Canada, your daily partners in witness and service from your doorsteps to the ends of the earth.
