Compassion Offering for 2pm Installation
We are excited and grateful to accept a Compassion Offering at the installation, dedicated to Heart Room, a ministry of ORUCC and area partners to find housing and support the needs of local families, which helps create housing justice locally.
The Wisconsin Conference has a tradition of collecting an offering for the Seminary fund at installations, and they are asking for us to split this offering, which we will happily do. Here is more information about the seminary fund and a way to donate online:
STUDENT AID AND SCHOLARSHIP FUND OFFERING
Isaiah heard God ask, “Whom shall I send?” And Isaiah responded, “Send me, Lord.” We rejoice for all the women and men who answer God’s call just like Isaiah.
Many who want to respond to God’s call to ministry struggle with the rising costs of theological education. We can help support new and emerging leaders in the church by providing scholarship aid to Members in Discernment (MID) in our conference.
Gifts at the time of a pastor’s ordination and installation allow the conference to provide scholarships. We celebrate your new pastor today. And we make sure there will be a next pastor to serve your congregation just as faithfully.
Conference scholarships, along with financial aid from the seminaries and the students’ personal funds, provide crucial support to financing the theological education and preparation of persons who will serve in ministry. In any given year there are 30 to 40 Seminary Members in Discernment from our Conference. Your generosity ensures we can continue to provide scholarship.
