Ohio Disciples Outreach
As the Christian Church in Ohio, we are people joined and knit together in love. The Christmas Offering is an opportunity to support the regional ministry we share with one another. It supports the work of Commission on Ministry Teams meeting with students individuals preparing for commissioned and ordained ministry. It helps send regional staff to meet with congregations and pastors. It provides significant supports for our excellent ministries at Camp Christian. It helps to provide training sessions for clergy. It helps assist congregations searching for their next minister. And so much more. Together—joined and knit together in love—we do ministry in the name of Christ.
Earlier in the year, each congregation received offering envelopes for our four Special Day offerings, including the Christmas Offering. Within the past few weeks congregations received bulletin inserts about the Christmas Offering. The Bulletin insert and additional material that help interpret the Christmas Offering, including a short video, are linked below.
Your gifts to the Christmas Offering support, build up and knit together the body of Christ in Ohio. Your generosity make a difference in local communities and around the world!
Thank you for your support of the Christmas Offering for the Christian Church in Ohio.
The Christmas Offering is received in most congregations on December 10th and 17th
