"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."

Christmas Offering benefiting the Northwest Regional Christian Church
Miracles happen in regional ministry!
Regional Ministry knits the church together by equipping leaders, encouraging congregations, and building relationships.
Miracles happen every day in all our regions as we:
- Assist congregations and leaders in claiming their unique mission and ministry, and provide resources and support.
- Call, commission and ordain new pastors, and support and equip all pastors for their ministries.
- Revitalize existing congregations and plan for new congregations.
- Connect Regional Disciples to give witness to ministries of justice, hope, and compassion.
- Provide camps, conferences, and retreats where children and youth find hope and Christ’s love and a community of faith that embraces “everyone.”
- Make visible the care for all of God’s family through ministries of reconciliation and anti-racism.
- Call and equip passionate leaders for today’s church.
- Provide pastoral care for clergy and congregations.
Received in most congregations on December 10 and 17, 100% of the Christmas offering given by Northwest congregations in December returns to support the ministries of the Northwest Regional Christian Church. Thank you for your generous gifts.
Below are links to download four moment for mission bulletin inserts to be used in the congregations during Advent in support of this special offering. We have also developed a selection of Powerpoint slides that may be used along side the bulletins or stand alone. That file is also linked below.
