DEMOCRATIC REPUBLIC OF CONGO
When First Christian Church developed a friendship with a young college student studying at the University of Arkansas who was from Kinshasa, DRC, our hearts were open to the humanitarian, political and economic hardships affecting the Congolese people. Putting faith into action, we partnered with the Community of Disciples of Christ in Congo to build 9 wells, support girl’s education, micro-credit and skills-training programs, and raise funds for a rural hospital in Mbandaka. The church also supported one of its members on a mission visit to Congo.
WEEK OF COMPASSION
We support Week of Compassion. This is the relief, refugee and development mission fund of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in the United States and Canada. Through our giving, the mission fund seeks to alleviate suffering by providing disaster response and humanitarian aid as well as supporting sustainable development projects and mission opportunities.
