Reconciliation Ministry
Special Offering 2021

Link to Reconciliation Offering Worship Resources

Sermon Starter for September 26, 2021

 

The Reconciliation Ministry Special Offering will be received in congregations this year on September 26th and October 3rd. Our theme is “Revealing God’s Justice: The Time is Always Ripe to Do What is Right.” Now, in the aftermath of the death of George Floyd, violence against Asian and Pacific Islanders, and the deadly inequities of the Coronavirus Pandemic, is the time for our Church to strengthen its commitment to actively seek God’s justice.

Reconciliation Ministry is the church wide mission fund which supports programs and program partners that enable full human flourishing for everyone in every community. As followers of Christ, we believe every life is precious and valued in God’s beloved community. Your generosity has supported our ability to provide grant awards to Bethany College’s Equity Community Guide, Diversity Audit and the Region of Greater Kansas City’s Becoming Beloved Community Program, as well as denominationally-sponsored educational events such as Facing Brokenness and Love is an Action Word webinars.

We believe that the Christian Church (Disciple of Christ) is uniquely equipped to encourage racial equity and justice in the communities where we worship and serve. Your gifts to Reconciliation Ministry promote our mission of creating a just and loving society. The prophet Isaiah reminds us that God’s salvation is for ALL of us. The scripture in Isaiah 56:1 reads, “This is what the LORD says: “Maintain justice and do what is right, for my salvation is close at hand and my righteousness will soon be revealed.” We all have a role in revealing God’s justice. It is our call as the community of faith, the body of believers, and the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ). Your giving promotes our capacity to respond and to reveal God’s love and justice in such a time as this!
