Aid to Haiti for Hurricane Matthew
Community of Christ is sending an initial $10,000 from Abolish Poverty, End Suffering for Hurricane Matthew relief in Haiti. The needs there are sure to exceed this amount. You can respond now through e-Tithing by selecting the Worldwide Mission Tithes category and giving to "Hurricane Matthew Relief." (In Australia or Canada, go to www.CofChrist.org/give.)
Apostle Arthur Smith is not aware of loss of life among church members in Haiti. "Many count themselves lucky to be alive, including a family who left their home just before the roof collapsed," shared Arthur. Many members have lost their homes and of the 12 congregations in one area of Haiti all but one are destroyed. He said, "Due to bridges being out, we still can't go visit people. Communication remains difficult."
Your continued prayers and generous giving to Abolish Poverty, End Suffering offer hope and tangible aid to make a difference in the lives of those affected by Hurricane Matthew. Thank you.
COMMUNITY OF CHRIST
The Community of Christ is an international Christian church with 250,000 members found in more than 50 nations. Our World Headquarters, which includes a Temple dedicated to the pursuit of peace, is located in Independence, Missouri. The church was organized in 1830 in New York State.
CENTRAL MISSOURI MISSION CENTER
Upon the call of the First Presidency and the Council of Twelve, “Holden Stake” was organized July 15, 1916 with 6 branches. The stake territory included parts of 10 counties in Missouri and Kansas. Within a year, 5 new branches and 7 new missions had been established. By 1946, the stake headquarters had been moved to Warrensburg, Mo., and the name of the stake was changed to Central Missouri Stake. On January 1, 2004 the stake name was changed to Central Missouri Mission Center as we also welcomed four new congregations into our mission center family. Central Missouri Mission Center currently includes 17 congregations of the Community of Christ. Parts of 13 counties in west central Missouri and 1 county in east central Kansas comprise the mission center. The Mission Center Headquarters is located in Warrensburg, Missouri.
