June Communion Retiral Offering

The June 28th 2015 Communion retiral offering will go to the Barnabas Fund. The Barnabas Fund website at https://barnabasfund.org provides the following information:

We give: The main ministry of Barnabas Fund is to send financial support to projects which help Christians where they suffer discrimination, oppression and persecution as a consequence of their faith. The projects aim to strengthen Christian individuals, churches and their communities by providing material and spiritual support in response to needs identified by local Christian leaders.
Encourage prayer: We seek to encourage and facilitate prayer by providing prayer information, prayer requests and resources in many different forms and formats.
Raise awareness: This ministry makes known the plight of the persecuted Church, particularly in the Muslim world, by a wide variety of means, in order to educate Christians and others about the current situation and needs as well as the background and causal factors.
Contest injustice:  When requested by Christians in the contexts concerned, we engage in speaking on their behalf. This can be by public petitions and letter-writing campaigns or discreet contacts behind the scenes.
