You Have Rolled away the Stone: An Easter prayer from Worship in the City.

Working Brings New Life: Jesse's Story Part 2

Supporting job training and employment programs has never been more important than it is today. Because of the pandemic, 114 million more jobs were lost in 2020 than in 2019—that’s four times more jobs than were lost during the global financial crisis in 2009. Your gifts through Mission & Service support programs that help people like Jesse find meaningful employment and renewed life. It’s one of the ways you and I participate in God’s holy, resurrecting work every day.

Arts & Faith: Easter

Enter into a visual prayer experience this Lent with Arts & Faith. Each week we’ll provide a video commentary about a work of art inspired by the Sunday Scriptures. Use these videos to take a new look at this season of spiritual renewal through the lens of sacred art.
