World Conference Offering Update: Nearing the Goal!

World Conference Offering 2010
We Share: Our Call and Commitment in the World

Through last Sunday, March 14th, you have given $85,000 toward the World Conference Offering. Thank you! The goal for this portion of the Conference Offering is $135,000.

The Conference Offering helps to pay for the costs of Conference (approximately US $631,000) and provide the Saints worldwide access to the events of this important week. Funds from this offering also will help keep the registration fee for Conference affordable.

In just a few short weeks, the Saints will gather together for worship, discernment, discussion, and fellowship at World Conference. No matter where you live, you have the opportunity to help make World Conference a comprehensive worldwide experience by supporting it financially.

There is still time to help. Here’s how:

*   Contribute online at using a debit or credit card.

*   Use your Mission Tithes offering envelopes by writing World Conference on the World Ministries portion of the envelope.

*   In Canada, mail a cheque to: Community of Christ Canadian Headquarters, 390 Speedvale Avenue East, Guelph, Ontario  N1E 1N5. Cheques should be made payable to the Bishop of Canada with “World Conference Offering” written on the memo line.

Thank you for your generous giving! May we be blessed with the assurance that God goes with us always as we strive to share our mission and message with the world.
