Beginning April 18th, Seven Days of Solidarity is inspired by the work of our partner churches, celebrating where the risen Christ is at work changing lives.
Celebrating the good things God is doing seems important after a year of strain and struggle to adapt to a pandemic that is still the source of pain for millions of people.
COVID-19 continues to make life so incredibly difficult for our partners, but through it all, God is faithful. Their incredible lives remind us that we’re surrounded by a cloud of witnesses who keep the faith, and giving up is not an option.
UnitingWorld holds these partnerships on behalf of the people of the Uniting Church, and we wanted to take the opportunity to share some of their stories and inspire you in faith and action.
In the weeks immediately after Easter, when we celebrate resurrection life and the birth of the Church, this is an opportunity to bear witness to where the risen Christ is at work. Join us to celebrate our partners, give thanks, and share resources to keep this mission alive.
Booklets containing the stories and devotions are now available to pick up from the church foyer, along with donation envelopes. You can also find them online here:
Lent Event Update
Friends, this year we took our fundraising online for Lent Event. We set up a St Luke’s Team Page, which raised $255 of our $3000 goal from 3 donors and 1 team member. This is less than St Luke’s has raised for Uniting World than in past years. If you missed the chance to donate, please consider donation through the Seven Days of Solidarity campaign instead. Our Partners in the Pacific very much need our support.
