“Our Mission and Service is hope and love in action. Just as Jesus called his followers to a way of compassion and transformation in his time, as Jesus’ followers today, we too are called to the same mission. By making Mission and Service
a part of our giving, we are each answering God’s call for us to mend the world.
If you gave to Mission and Service last year, thank you. Your giving made a difference in people’s lives. We invite you to please give again now. Take a moment to imagine how much can be done with your generous gift.
If you did not give to Mission and Service last year, please start right now. Make this the year you make giving to Mission and Service a regular part of your life of faith.”*
