Financial Giving Opportunity

  • Mission of the Month Offering October

The October mission offering is supporting the Disciples of Christ Reconciliation Ministry.  The purpose of this offering is to help address issues of racism in our communities and churches.  We want to better help all people engage our brothers and sisters in a way that is of respect and compassion.  Part of the money goes toward localized ministry efforts of racial reconciliation and other funds go to help train leaders in our church across the United States and Canada about anti-racism.  Our primary offering will be taken during worship on Sunday October 6.  A gift to this cause can be made anytime during the month.  Make sure you designate your gift as “October Mission Offering.”

Hands-On Mission Opportunities

Arlington Life Shelter – Saturday October 5

Rush Creek has the blessing of providing and serving meals to families in need right here in Arlington.  The first Saturday of April is our next time in the rotation with the Arlington Life Shelter.  Our efforts provide sack lunches that are prepared at the church, cooking a hot meal that is taken to the shelter for dinner on that Saturday, and serving the dinner that night.  Karen Meachum is the coordinator of this outreach ministry.  The Wonder Women will assembly the sack lunches on Saturday afternoon.  We are always open to new and continuing helpers to make effort possible.  It is a great way to be a witness and serve those Christ called us to serve.  If you want to help, please contact Karen so you can join the effort.
