Donor Story: First Christian Church in Amarillo, TX
The First Christian Church in Amarillo, Texas has supported the work of the Community of the Disciples of Christ in the Congo (CDCC) since Reverend Barry Loving visited the Democratic Republic of Congo through a Global Ministries delegation in 2010. Recently, when the church heard about the challenges of travelling and visiting parishes throughout the Democratic Republic of the Congo for CDCC pastors, First Christian Church in Amarillo, TX wanted to support the CDCC through raising funds for the purchase of a boat and several motorcycles. The congregation has been raising funds through an initiative named, “Cargo4theCongo”, and will be collecting funds to purchase a boat and motorcycles for the CDCC. Through these vehicles, CDCC pastors will be able to provide pastoral presence to parishes that currently receive very few visits each year.
