Come join us in celebrating World Communion Sunday on October 5.
Around the world, countless gifted and qualified people — especially youth and young adults — face financial obstacles that hinder them from preparing for the vocation God has given them.
For ethnic students who will be the first generation in their families to attend college, or for those people of color who haven’t historically had access to resources that make higher education possible, the road toward education has often been unwieldy.
What would it look like if the church today imitated Jesus’ affirmation of the full dignity and God-given potential of all women and men — especially those
who’ve historically been assigned to the world’s margins? On World Communion Sunday your giving helps to provide scholarships for national and international graduate students whom God has gifted to learn and to serve.
“God, as we gather in this sacred community of faith, we remember that our congregation is but one of the many parts of your eternal and universal church. Though we come from different backgrounds, we are all part of the body of Christ.
“Make us ever mindful and understanding of the suffering of our members, jubilant in their joys and knowledgeable of their condition. We pray for our continued ministry with our brothers and sisters around the world. May we see ourselves one day as you see us. In Christ’s name, we pray. Amen.”
