OUR SPECIAL OFFERING for the month of June is designated for
RCA Care NetWork/World Renew. The RCA has partnered over the
years with many organizations and their relationship with the
Christian Reformed World Relief Committee has grown deeper and
wider. CRWRC is now World Renew and they are now their primary
partner in domestic disaster response. This opens up many
opportunities to RCA members as volunteers and allows them to
respond both immediately and for the long term. World Renew is an
organization that is greatly respected in the disaster response world,
by both faith based organizations and governmental agencies. This
special offering will be received on June 28.
