And the crowds asked him, "What then should we do?” In reply he said to them, "Whoever has two coats must share with anyone who has none; and whoever has food must do likewise."
- Luke 3:10-11
At this time of Advent, we are often our most generous. We give gifts to families and friends. More importantly, we give to those from whom we expect nothing in return. It is in this spirit that I want to share some of the great work that is happening right at our very own Camp Christian. The Free Store at Camp Christian has re-opened, and provides gently used clothing and linens to disadvantaged families in Union and Delaware Counties year-round. Volunteers prepared Turkey Pot Pies and dessert pies to give to needy families for Thanksgiving. And as we prepare for Christmas, Disciples across Ohio are donating toys and personal items that will become gifts from Free Store clients to their children. All of these beautiful expressions of love are made possible by the generosity of Disciples like you, who give of their time, talent and wealth in the name of Christ. Thank you for all you do to share your blessings with others.
Creator God, thank you for the blessings you have so generously bestowed upon us. Help us to show that same spirit of generosity to all your children.
Wishing God’s blessings upon you,
Treasurer, Regional Church Council
P.S. Please remember the Christian Church in Ohio by giving through the Christmas Offering, which supports all of the great work done at Camp Christian and through our Region.
