Many Changes in the NACCC
Michael Chittum, Executive Director
For the first time since the restructuring of the NACCC was finalized, I believe, we have major changes within the elected leadership on the three Ministry Councils and on the Leadership Council. I welcome all the folks who have been elected and who are willing to serve as leaders of our Association.
All of our Councils are encouraged to share news of their projects and their work with the broader NA family. Let me also encourage our churches to share news about what is happening in your church and your community with the NA office. Through this newsletter, and in other ways, we will help you get the word out.
This next year will be a great one in the continuing work of the NACCC.
Flooding in Houston
People Still Need Our Help
Linda Miller, Missions Coordinator
The One Great Hour of Sharing Fund (OGHS) is a fund the NACCC uses to bring emergency relief to victims of natural disasters (floods, famine, hurricanes, earthquakes) both in the United States and around the world. This fund is monitored and distributed by the Mission and Outreach Ministry Council.
The NACCC is already collecting donations to support those impacted by Hurricane Harvey and Irma. We also want you to know that OGHS is collecting and sending help to those missions and member churches that are being affected by the fires in the west and the earthquake in Mexico. If there is not an NACCC family in the areas affected, we find a suitable organization to send funds through.
Remember every dollar sent to the NACCC will be sent directly to where you designate it to go. Please disignate accordingly.
Send donations to:
PO Box 288
Oak Creek, WI 53154
Packet to Member Churches on the Way
Later this month all member churches will be receiving a packet from the NACCC full of various flyers and brochures. Important materials about future programs, investment opportunities, publications for purchase, dollars available through The Hurting Church Fund, and so much more are included.
Please take the time to review the material with staff and leadership, pin it up on your bulletin board, or make copies to pass out during coffee hour on Sunday morning.
Please Share the NACCC E-News with your family and friends.
