President’s Message Urges Giving
A video statement released today on www.CofChrist.org and as a DVD explains the urgent need for giving, specifically to Worldwide Mission Tithes. President Steve Veazey reminds Community of Christ members that “sharing for the common good is the spirit of Zion.”
He emphasizes that $14.9 million in tithing is needed by the end of 2017 to meet the Worldwide Mission budget. Without that amount, ministries and staff could be cut.
Veazey points to eTithing, which enables recurring electronic payments. “I invite you to experience the joy the spiritual practice of generosity,” he says. His video message is accompanied by others, including messages from individuals who have benefited from Worldwide Mission Tithes. More videos can be viewed on YouTube. The DVD is available from pastors and mission center presidents.
Congregations are urged to support Worldwide Mission tithing with a service dedicated to the subject and with investment income.
