Bringing Bliss to Our Hearts​

During rehearsal a few months ago, the director of my local choir asked us to really pay attention to the words to the American Folk Hymn "What Wondrous Love", and to sing those words with a hushed excitement. Philanthropy literally means "the love of human-kind." What would the world be like if we approached philanthropy as a wondrous form of love that is full of exciting possibilities?

FEBRUARY
SPLIT PLATE OFFERING

 

We think it is important to give back to the community.  

Each month our "WeCare" team chooses a worthy cause to receive half of our offerings - we split the plate!

WCK is first to the frontlines, providing meals in response to humanitarian, climate, and community crises. When disaster strikes, WCK’s Relief Team mobilizes to the frontlines with the urgency of now to start cooking and provide meals to people in need. By partnering with organizations on the ground and activating a network of local restaurants, food trucks, or emergency kitchens, WCK serves comforting meals to survivors of disasters quickly and effectively. We know that good food provides not only nourishment, but also comfort and hope, especially in times of crisis.

WCK has provided more than 300 million fresh, nourishing meals for communities around the world. Your donation today will be used to support our emergency food relief efforts.

about our Touchstone theme which gives our Sunday services a guiding foundation.

 

This year's overarching theme is

Reimagining the Common Good

This requires looking at society and ourselves because the common good is always in competition with individual needs and interests. The “letter” of the common good includes fundamental rights and freedoms but the "spirit" of the common good presupposes every person's inherent worth and dignity and seeks justice, equity, and compassion in human relations.

February's Theme is

Love

The 8th principle embodies King’s Dream of justice as well as his advocacy for Beloved Community with an explicit call to action rather than an implicit one. Its focus on racism and other oppressions are necessary to overcome narrow concepts of the common good. The Beloved Community is the highest expression of the common good so we work to be diverse, multicultural Beloved Communities where all thrive.  We support the use of inclusive democratic processes to make decisions within our congregations and society at large.  And we covenant to dismantle racism and all forms of systemic oppression.
