Our Thanksgiving Offertory Collection this year will benefit Churches United for the Homeless and Central Cities Ministries.
Churches United is the only shelter in town that can house a mom, dad and children together, and its family rooms are always full. It serves hundreds of meals each week and provides other necessities for homeless persons. We prepare and serve brunch there on the 5th Saturday of the month.
Central Cities Ministries is a collaboration of area faith communities that serves far beyond its original focus of the “center” of Fargo-Moorhead. It is considered to be somewhat of a “ last chance” for help because it responds to a variety of needs that can’t be met anywhere else. It also assists with the Sheltering Churches Project in winter.
Both of these organizations are part of our Care and Share Ministries.
The generosity shown by the people of Nativity at Thanksgiving makes a real difference in our community and has always been greatly appreciated. Please make checks payable to Nativity. Thank you.

Almighty eternal God, source of all compassion,
the promise of your mercy and saving help fills our hearts with hope.
Hear the cries of the people of Syria;
bring healing to those suffering from the violence,
and comfort to those mourning the dead.
Empower and encourage Syria’s neighbors
in their care and welcome for refugees.
Convert the hearts of those who have taken up arms,
and strengthen the resolve of those committed to peace.
O God of hope and Father of mercy,
your Holy Spirit inspires us to look beyond ourselves and our own needs.
Inspire leaders to choose peace over violence
and to seek reconciliation with enemies.
Inspire the Church around the world with compassion for the people of Syria,
and fill us with hope for a future of peace built on justice for all.
We ask this through Jesus Christ, Prince of Peace and Light of the World,
who lives and reigns for ever and ever.
Amen. from the Franciscan Action Network
