Logo for events page on websiteWe’ve all heard of the shopping frenzy of “Black Friday” and “Cyber Monday”, #GivingTuesday is an opportunity for us to give back and to give thanks.

Your ministry reaches far beyond your walls and even around the globe. On Tuesday, December 1, we invite you to join us in the #GivingTuesday global celebration of generosity by supporting Acts of Wisdom, a faith-based nonprofit organization within our synod dedicated to assisting those in rural Africa in their quest to obtain an education.

How can I help?

Donate TodayCelebrate #GivingTuesday and consider supporting the mission and ministry of Acts of Wisdom. If you are in a congregation, please considering including the bulletin insert. Perhaps your congregation or youth group could do a special offering.

Donate online or send a check to the synod office with “#GivingTuesday” written in the memo line.

What impact can my contribution make?

Goal ThermometerMany of us have been incredibly fortunate to never have to experience some of the difficulties of the world – going hungry, not having access to clean drinking water, and not having access to a quality education.

Through our generosity and support, we can see how people’s lives are touched by the gospel, how their lives are transformed and renewed, and how their communities live in hope.
