No congregation, clergy person, lay leader, or institutions should feel isolated and alone in the important mission they offer our world. Through your Regional Minister, Office, Board, Commissions, and volunteers, we help all who are a part of the Christian Church Capital Area thrive!
There are many ways you can support the ministry of the Christian Church Capital Area!
Miracles Happen In Regional Ministry!
Miracles happen every day in all our regions as we:
- Assist congregations and leaders in claiming their unique mission and ministry, and provide resources and support.
- Call, commission and ordain new pastors, and support and equip all pastors for their ministries.
- Revitalize existing congregations and plan for new congregations.
- Connect Regional Disciples to give witness to ministries of justice, hope, and compassion.
- Provide camps, conferences, and retreats where children and youth find hope and Christ’s love and a community of faith that embraces “everyone.”
- Make visible the care for all of God’s family through ministries of reconciliation and anti-racism.
- Call and equip passionate leaders for today’s church.
- Provide pastoral care for clergy and congregations.
The Christmas Special Day offering supports all of these and many other ministries of our regions. We are inviting congregations to receive this offering December 10 and December 17. 100% of all gifts receive in Christian Church Capital Area congregations will come back to the Christian Church Capital Area Region.

Dear Capital Area Region Supporter,
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.
