"Special Days in the life of the church often allow us to focus our worship, celebrations and fellowship around moments that are central to our faith.
Disciples Mission Fund Special Day Offerings also provide an opportunity to highlight specific ministries as part of our faith celebrations.
There are four Disciples Mission Fund Special Day Offerings received each year during Easter, Pentecost, Thanksgiving, and Christmas seasons. Also, Special Mission Fund offerings for Week of Compassion and Reconciliation Ministry are received in the last two Sundays of February (Week of Compassion) and the last Sunday of September and the first Sunday of October (Reconciliation). Each offering supports a specific ministry providing critical resources."

As was stated in the Disciples News on March 8, “A gift to the Easter Offering goes a long way to bring wholeness in the world. From children in Lesotho to people dealing with mental health issues in the U.S. and Canada; preserving history to communicating about the Church today, the Easter Offering supports most of the general ministries of the Church. “
