Easter Special Offering
“This is the day that the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.” – Psalm 118:24 NRSV
Even in these stressful, uncertain times, we can rejoice in the ways Disciples are working together as one Church to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic, and how we can live into our call to be in covenant together.
Across the United States, Canada, and beyond, Disciples still rejoice in all that the Lord has made. This Easter, we rejoice together as one Church, as the One Body of Christ. We rejoice in all that we accomplish together, and the work God accomplishes through us – even under the most difficult circumstances that call us to worship and connect in new ways.
As your congregation gathers virtually this Easter season, there are a variety of resources available on this page to make this special Easter offering for our general ministries a part of your gathering on April 5 and 12.
As you prepare to celebrate these holy days in your congregation, download resources contributed by the very ministries your offering supports, like PowerPoint slides, videos, images, and communion and offering meditations.
The Easter offering is especially important right now, in this time when we are reminded that church can happen in many ways and in many places, not only in our physical buildings. General ministries, including those supported by the Easter offering, are able to respond and be present in this crisis because of the covenant that binds us together as Church.
This Easter season, let us rejoice in all the ways our wider Church embodies the Spirit of Resurrection, through life-giving ministry.
