Good-Byes and Hellos...
Ministries Across Generations is sad to announce the passing of our Ministry Associate, Wilma Shuffitt. She worked with DHM for nearly 12 years and served as support for several ministries. We are grateful for her servant heart, commitment to helping others and love for her family and friends. Over the past year she had helped update the website, virtually assist all the various needs of CW&W, the social media needs of MAG, and this newsletter.
Ministries Across Generations is excited to announce a new member of our team!
Rev. Monique Crain Spells has been called as the new Director of Christian Education/Faith Formation -Merger Staff for Disciples Home Missions and the National Convocation. (Full article.) Monique also comes with a little person who will also be invited to share his voice!
Christmas Mission Project (More details)
Looking for an easy, yet very meaningful hands-on mission project for your children, youth or family to do during this pandemic time of all-too-much time at home or in “virtual reality”?
This project is simple but very meaningful because it will provide some 5000 asylum seekers (many of whom are children) in detainment at Eloy Detention Center in Eloy, Arizona with the only Christmas present they are going to receive.

Light a Candle with Children 2021 - Daily Reflections
Light a Candle WITH Children is a daily devotion that invites congregations to join in prayer and devotions with our children. The vigil begins four weeks before the National Observance of Children’s Sabbath sponsored by the Children’s Defense Fund, Washington, DC. Thousands of congregations from multiple faith groups unite during Children’s Sabbath weekend to simultaneously witness for children through prayer, education, and worship.
You can find the daily devotion:
