THANK OFFERING

Sunday, November 22nd @ 9:00am

As followers of Christ, we are all called to be ambassadors of the Kingdom throughout the world. Through the global Church of the Nazarene Thank Offering, you are doing exactly that. Not only are you showing Christ’s love to your neighbors locally, but you are also showing it to those thousands of miles away.

 

When your church supports this offering, which is given to the World Evangelism Fund (WEF), they are supporting the actions of Nazarenes loving others in Christ’s name, truly making Christlike disciples in all nations. Our Thank offering will be received on November 22nd during morning service. Please mark "Thank Offering" in the memo or click below:

CHILD SPONSORSHIP

RCNAZ directly supports Child Sponsorship, a mission of the Nazarene Compassionate Ministries. Together, we are currently helping to care for the specific needs of children at the Native American Christian Academy. Your donations to NCM Child Sponsorship helps to provide children in need with school lunches, supplies, health care, clothing, gifts on their birthdays and more. Please pray and consider making a one time gift or a monthly donation, to help make a big difference for these children in need.
