CHRIST BIRTHDAY OBSERVANCE (CBO)
The theme for this year is “Good News – Experiencing the Genuine Jesus”. It seems that everywhere we turn, we are confronted with bad news. It’s time that we encountered some good news! Good news restores hope, energizes love, excites joy, and bring peace. Over the past two thousand years, people just like you and me have found that experiencing Jesus – the genuine Jesus – has enriched and even, transformed our lives. This Christmas, we invite you to sample the best news of all. His name is JESUS.
The Observance, which began in 1949 is sponsored by the Christian Women Connection or WCG. It continues to be one way that Church of God congregations come together for the benefit of the kingdom. This Observance helps us to focus on Christ during the season of Advent. The Christ’s Birthday Observance Offering will be taken on Sunday, December 22nd. The offering is sent in and 50% is used to support missions and 50% to support Church of God Ministries.
Christian Women Connection is forever grateful for the wonderful ways you have supported Christ’s Birthday Observance Offering and the ministry of the women in the Church of God through the years.
Project Prayer, which is a vital part of the Christ Birthday Observance, provides a unique opportunity during the Christ Birthday Observance for the Church of God world wide to join together in a 25-day prayer vigil. With so much division in our world, how powerful it is for the church to join together in prayer for our leaders, the Church, and the world. To keep the prayers going, different states and countries will be praying everyday from December 1 through December 25. West Virginia’s day to pray is December 20th along with Massachusetts, Guam, Guyana, and Greece.
