Ribstone Enrichment Weekend details are posted at CWM News.

Oblation received from Canadian contributors up to February 12th will be channelled through the Canadian Red Cross and will be matched by the Federal Government. This is for immediate aid and is not directed only to our churches and church members in Haiti. Oblation donations through your envelopes or directly to the CWM office will be included in the amount sent to Red Cross. We have specific approval from the Presiding Bishopric for this approach.  Oblation contributions marked for Haiti and received after February 12th will be used specifically for aid and redevelopment for Community of Christ churches and  members in Haiti. For further updates on Haiti please go to the World Church website:  and look under News.

Prayers for Peace: IHQ would like to have prayers for peace submitted from all regions of the church. You can visit the page by clicking on Prayers for Peace. On the left side of the screen there is a menu, one of which is “Submit Prayer for Peace.”  Just follow the guidelines to submit  prayers. Once the prayer is submitted, be aware that it is subject to editing. It would be helpful if as many prayers as possible were submitted by June 1, 2010.
