REMINDER TO DISCIPLES: SPECIAL EVENT IN WASHINGTON, DC on JUNE 23rd

We are reaching out to you on behalf of the Disciples Center for Public Witness (www.disciplescenter.org) located at National City Christian Church (www.nationalcitycc.org) in Washington D.C. As you probably already know, the Poor People’s Campaign: A National Call for Moral Revival (www.poorpeoplescampaign.org) will be holding a mass event in Washington, DC, on June 23rd at 10am. Please note that Disciples will meet beforehand at 8:15/8:30am at National City Christian Church (at the 14th Street entrance).

Our General Assembly has endorsed this campaign and has urged Disciples to support it and participate in it. Our General Minister and President, Rev. Terri Hord Owens, has been leading the way for Disciples, even engaging in nonviolent direct action. Disciples across the nation have been participating in events and actions at state capitals.

In case you have not already been promoting the Poor People’s Campaign, our office has created a few promotional materials that we hope will be distributed to your congregations in the coming days. Click here to access two promotional materials: a flyer with general information about the Poor People’s Campaign and another document with samples of information to put into newsletters and bulletins.
