What is Giving Tuesday and How You Can Help?
Since 2012, the first Tuesday after Thanksgiving has been designated as #GivingTuesday, a global generosity movement dedicated to transforming communities around the world. #GivingTuesday encourages people to do good around the world, and inspires millions to give and celebrate generosity.
In that spirit, The Christian Chain invites you to participate in #GivingTuesday by donating to our cause: connecting Christians around the world to fulfill Jesus' prayer for a united Church.
The Christian Chain is a Phoenix, Arizona non-profit working to fulfill God's plan for the Church to be unified as one. Through ministry partnerships, online forums, and actionable programs, we strive to live out Jesus' prayer for the Church in John 17:20-23, and Paul's exhortation for the church in Ephesians 4:1-6.
“...that they may all be one, just as you, Father, are in me, and I in you, that they also may be in us ..."
"...eager to maintain the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. There is one body and one Spirit... one Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of all..."
Our Prayer Nook app lets you journal, request prayers, pray with your friends, and strengthen your prayer life – all in one easy to use app. Pray for those in your feed, share personal prayers within your inner circle, and journal prayers in your own private notebook. By connecting with others through prayer, churches, organizations, and small groups can show unity by praying for and with each other.
Samaritan Bags is a public service project aimed at packing bags of essential items to meet the immediate, continual and eternal needs of the homeless population. These bags can be handed out at homeless shelters or churches, or be kept in your car so that you have something to hand out to someone on the side of the road who is in need. And the great thing about these bags is that they aren't just limited to the homeless – teachers, hospital workers, first responders, and essential personnel all benefit from Samaritan Bags. By coming together to provide for those in our communities, we unite to become Jesus' hands and feet, sharing the gospel with a hurting word.
Partners in Unity
Partners in Unity leverages a scriptural approach to assist Phoenix, AZ area church leaders in identifying biblical areas of unity within their congregations that need improvement. Via surveys, focus groups, and data-driven assessments, TCC shows unity by partnering with Church leadership. Using scriptural support and gospel-based resources, Partners in Unity helps churches actively live out unity within the Body of Christ.
Through God's provision this year via a one-time grant, The Christian Chain has been able to grow our staff to a team of ten. With that grant money coming to an end, we can look back over this past year and see how much we have grown and that we have achieved so much in such a short amount of time – and yet there's plenty more to do! But, we can't do it without your generosity.
