Week of Compassion

First Christian participates in national and international outreach through the work of the Week of Compassion.  Week of Compassion is the relief, refugee and development mission fund of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in the United States and Canada. We seek to equip and empower disciples to alleviate the suffering of others through disaster response, humanitarian aid, sustainable development and the promotion of mission opportunities.  For 67 years Week of Compassion has been making a difference, sharing joy through this offering which funds relief and development all over the world. Your gift to Week of Compassion ensures that people in need will get what they need. Your gift moves us one step closer to making sure that everyone gets what is rightfully theirs, just as God created the world to be.
