Least Coin Collection:
A Church Women United project, the Fellowship of the Least Coin calls you to: Pray regularly for women in every part of the world; become an instrument of reconciliation in your family, your neighborhood, in action which brings people of different races and nations more nearly in harmony and set aside as a token of participation….a least coin (one penny). Our Least Coin collections are gathered and taken to the annual May Friendship Day celebration each year. The funds are administered by the Asian Women’s Conference for Ministries of mercy on every continent and for experiences which create Christian Community across all lines.
Please place in an “Often-looked-at-area” of your home and drop a coin in for each special blessing you or your family receives. Examples: A happy recovery from illness, a new baby just home from the hospital, a victory over difficulty, a safe journey, everyday family love. Blessing box offerings are over-and-above gifts to the outreach ministries of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) around the world. The blessing of giving is ours, but the coins become blessings for others as they support an entire program of outreach. Blessing Box Offerings will be collected at C.W. F. Retreat in the Fall each year.
