2014 Easter Special Offering

“Christ has no body on earth but yours, no hands but yours, no feet but yours. Yours are the eyes through which Christ’s compassion for the world is to look out; yours are the feet with which He is to go about doing good; and yours are the hands which He is to bless us now.”
— Saint Teresa of Avila

Jesus gave his life as an offering to the world. He offered living water that would transform the world. The Easter Offering supports the General Ministries of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) and the countless ways that Disciples can continue to be the hands, feet and voice of Jesus.
