Your Gift Connects Congregations, Clergy, & Church Leaders!
Connecting Us All
The Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) Capital Area Region helps all of our congregations, clergy, lay leaders, and institutions stay connected so that no one feels isolated or alone.
Your financial support makes this connection possible!
The main story
The Christian Church in the Capital Area is meeting needs and helping to strengthen our congregations every day. The ministry of the Region and our local churches is vital. The Regional Church exists because the congregations of which you are a part are far too important to be left isolated and alone.
Your generosity, in both dollars and time to the Capital Area, makes possible:
- Strong and vibrant networks that provide opportunities for spiritual growth, skill building, compassionate care and joyful celebrations. From hosting leadership development events like Salt & Light Training Day to supporting pastors and congregations in crisis, the Capital Area is a vital presence in helping congregations achieve their missions.
- Quality and faithful commissioned and ordained pastoral leaders, nurtured by the Regional Minister and the Commission on Ministry, who are better leaders through the efforts of the Capital Area. You are part of a robust ministry that is represented when new pastors are called, clergy and congregational milestones are celebrated and attention is given when tensions arise.
- Life-changing experiences through our camp and conference programs. Because of your gifts and participation, our two camps/ conference centers are well maintained and have high quality resources to offer spiritual care and development to our children, youth, young adults and adults who attend.
Through your gifts to the Capital Area, you have made sure the local church and its leaders are never left stranded. When clergy and laity who lead these communities of faith need assistance, guidance, or a little extra attention in order to be more vibrant and healthy, your Capital Area team is here. Your generosity makes our work and success possible. I encourage you to give generously today! Thank you.
