Collected November 12 & 19, the Thanksgiving Special Offering benefits the colleges, universities, seminaries, and divinity houses affiliated with the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ). These are an extension of the church, challenging students to understand and respond to God’s call to serve.
Thousands of students have attended the Colleges and Universities of the Christian Church, receiving both a quality education and the opportunity to remain within our Disciple heritage.
Your financial gift provides scholarships and support for this ministry. When you give to the Thanksgiving Offering, you are investing in our students and helping keep education costs down.
Attending a Disciples College or Theological School is possible through the scholarships and grants that are made available by generous individuals, the Disciples Mission Fund and your gifts to the Thanksgiving Offering.
