“Special days in the life of the church often allow us to focus our worship, celebrations and fellowship around moments that are central to our faith.

Disciples Mission Fund Special Day Offerings provide an opportunity to highlight specific ministries as part of our faith celebrations. There are four Disciples Mission Fund Special Day Offerings received each year during Easter, Pentecost, Thanksgiving, and Christmas seasons. In addition, there are two special recognition offering days designated for Week of Compassion (February) and Reconciliation Ministry (September). Congregations can receive these offerings during worship or budget for a special gift, and individuals can always designate their gift to DMF for any of (these).
