This coming Sunday, December 7, 2014, brings the Sacrament of the Holy Communion to our church’s worship. Traditionally we receive a special communion offering; this month the offering will go to the Methodist Children’s Home in Waco.
December is when we typically receive a special offering for the Children’s Home. This year they celebrate their 125th anniversary.
Founded in 1890 as an orphanage, Methodist Children’s Home now has offices in 12 major cities in Texas and New Mexico. While it began as an institution offering custodial care to orphans, now the Home has developed into a multifaceted childcare agency serving children, youth, and families from the hard places in life.
Use the special offering envelope in your bulletin—we hope you will be generous as we support an outstanding cause and mission in our church.
