And hundreds of millions of people around the world struggle under the weight of poverty.  But thanks to your support, Week of Compassion will continue to respond. Events of the past year have shown us that, even in times when we cannot be physically together in one place, your offerings to support Week of Compassion continue to strengthen our church’s presence all over the world: providing water to the thirsty, food for the hungry, and hope for the weary.

“Go Now in Peace”
 Go now in peace. Never be afraid.
God will go with you each hour of ev’ry day.
Go now in faith, steadfast, strong and true.
Know He will guide you in all you do.
Go now in love, and show you believe.
Reach out to others so all the world can see.
God will be there, watching from above.
Go now in peace, in faith and in love.
