Sharing Brings Joy! A Worship Celebration with Week of Compassion

Will you be in Orlando for the Disciples General Assembly? We’d love to see you!

Week of Compassion would like to invite you to a special Sunday morning worship service at Pershing Avenue Christian Church in Orlando, Florida. We will celebrate the ways your gifts enable Week of Compassion to support partners from all over the world to live into Christ’s compassion for the vulnerable, the hurting, and the otherwise forgotten.

Worship will include stories shared from across the globe by people whose lives were changed by Week of Compassion partnerships with Global Ministries, Foods Resource Bank, IMA World Health, and Prosperity Candle-just to name a few. You’ll hear how the ministry of Week of Compassion has impacted lives from Immokalee, FL to Joplin, Missouri and beyond. Our friends at Green Chalice and Equal Exchange are also partnering with us to host a Fair Trade Coffee Hour with delicious fair trade coffee and tea from our very own Disciples Coffee Project.

Leslie Lee and Steve Gretz, the dynamic musical duo who wrote “One Great Hour to Share,” a song featured during this year’s Week of Compassion special offering season, will be offering music both before the service and during the worship celebration. For more information about Leslie and Steve, you can visit their website.

Worship begins at 8:30 am on July 14th. Pershing Avenue Christian Church is located on 2000 Pershing Ave in Orlando. Shuttle buses will provide transportation between the church and the convention center.  The service is early Sunday morning so that those who want to attend “Sunday School” or other events at the convention center will have plenty of time to do so.

This event is free but tickets are required. Tickets are available through online registration . If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact our office, weekofcompassion@woc.disciples.org or (317) 713-2442.

We look forward to meeting you in Orlando, where we will worship, celebrate, and share joy together!
