Special Offering - World Renew Hunger Campaign: This month our special offering is to support the work of World Renew as it helps to put food on tables around the world. World Renew has the plans, the systems, the partners, and the people to come alongside communities experiencing hunger. We are excited to join this program as a faithful response to the God who can accomplish abundantly more than all we ask or imagine. See Every Table: World Hunger 2020 for more information. 

Just Faith Forum: This month you are invited to learn about the underlying roots of the global hunger/refugee crisis. One group of people that are refugees due to religious persecution are the Rohingya of Myanmar. Read this World Renew article about the Refugee Camp Conditions.

Public Lecture - Christian University Education in Times of Pandemic: Monday, Nov. 2, 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm via Zoom. There is a deep commitment to justice that runs through our veins as an institution and as a community of learners. If you have been following the public lecture series, justice is more than righting wrongs (which is important). It speaks to the very core of how we experience life together as a university community. So, how do we understand justice in a university context? How do we know we are on the right path, particularly in this time of pandemic and in our present context? Each university has its own culture and language. Much of which is implicit and needs to be examined from time to time. In this lecture, we will explore how justice is understood at King’s, and ways we are pursuing our vision to help build a more humane, just, and sustainable world. Presenter: Dr. Melanie Humphreys, President of The King’s University. Click here for more information and to register.

BEIRUT RESPONSE UPDATE:  World Renew would like to extend thanks to Canadian churches and individuals who responded in love by giving to the Beirut response—over $500,000 has been received and many gifts are having double the impact with the Canadian government's match. In the immediate,  6,000 hot meals have been provided to families affected by the blast. World Renew is committed to a longer-term response of providing food vouchers, hygiene kits, COVID-19 informational leaflets, and winterization supplies (blankets, warm clothes, stoves, and fuel) to vulnerable families. Pray for our Lebanese brothers and sisters. Want to stay update?
