There are times when helping the body of Christ means reaching past your local congregation and stretching across the country. In the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, Karis Church plans to do just that. In place of the normal monthly fellowship offering this month, we will want our giving to help some of the people involved in Sandy relief work. At the Gathering this Sunday, November 11, you will have the opportunity to give to a special fellowship offering. All the funds received in this separate offering will go to Hurricane Sandy relief work on the East Coast. We encourage everyone to empty your change jars, bring a check, and come prepared to help these affected areas.
