Be part of something BIG at General Assembly!
Week of Compassion and the General Assembly Local Missions Team are working with Help Build Hope to frame a house for survivors of the devastating tornadoes that hit western Kentucky in 2021. Sunday morning (July 30), we will have a brief worship service then will frame a house right in the Exhibit Hall! Come work and pray with other volunteers as we help one family get closer to moving home.
Just because General Assembly is over does not mean the work of the Church is done. In fact, when everyone goes back home to their local congregations, that’s when the real work begins. This year, the Assembly went out with some clear imperatives and action items moving forward. Keep reading for some resources to help your home church continue the work of the wider church.
In a little over a week, Disciples from all around the United States and Canada will gather in Des Moines for a time of worship, fellowship and sharing in the work of the church. It’s an exciting time to catch up with old friends, and to be energized and inspired for ministry.
With so many people and ministries to catch up with, General Assembly can be a very busy time that goes by quickly. As you plan your time in Des Moines, here are some ways you can connect with Week of Compassion throughout the week:
