Committee members voted to adopt five goals outlined by the Columbia Union Task Force on Race, Equity and Inclusion.
The Columbia Union Conference is putting forward significant funding to help prove that mission trips don’t require church members to cross oceans or enter foreign lands. Over the past five years, the union has donated $1 million toward its Homeland Mission Initiative. These monies go back to local Seventh-day Adventist churches to fund creative ministries programs, outreach projects and mission schools—all designed to share the gospel message right outside their front doors.
The 2016 Columbia Union Calendar features pictures that illustrate some of the ways members in the Columbia Union share messages of love, ministries of grace and seeds of hope.
“In each Visitor, we feature stories of how God is working in and through people in the Columbia Union to make life better for others, as Jesus did,” says Celeste Ryan Blyden, vice president for communication and public relations. “This calendar captures some of those memorable moments from our conferences, schools and ministries.”
