Faith Christian Church Makes Donations to Special Kids & Families, Week of Compassion

Posted on Tue, Dec 12, 2006

Gifts Funded By Faith Christian Church Foundation

Each year Faith Christian Church takes interest from our accounts with the Christian Church Foundation and provides it to ministry teams to use as they see fit.  The largest percentage of these funds goes to our Outreach Team.  This year, they have chosen to provide donations to a couple of very deserving organizations.

Week of Compassion

Week of Compassionis the "relief, refugee and development ministry fund of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ). 

The ministry of Week of Compassion is a faithful and effective way for Disciples congregations, members and friends to channel their resources and concerns to the humanitarian needs of suffering people in the world.

Through Week of Compassion, North American Disciples reach out in the name of Christ to:

  1. provide emergency and long-term assistance to people in the aftermath of hurricanes, floods, earthquakes, droughts, civil war and other natural and human catastrophes. In a typical year WOC responds to a disaster about once every two days.
  2. respond with help, hope and hospitality to people who have been uprooted and displaced from their homelands by war, environmental catastrophe, famine and natural disaster. There are more than 30 million uprooted and displaced people in the world. Many of them are children.
  3. support programs of sustainable development and rehabilitation that empower people and communities to stand against and rise above hunger, poverty, disease, illiteracy, and other forces of injustice that deny and destroy human dignity. WOC supports projects in nearly 100 countries on every inhabitable continent of the earth. 
  4. encourage and support volunteer groups in "hands-on" mission and service opportunities.
