To a significant extent, the expectations of the early church mirrored those of Jesus himself.

The crucifixion and the resurrection of Jesus were regarded as eschatological work already done.

The early church's eschatology shifted over time, for example, from a more "future" to a more "realized" eschatological perspective (i.e., toward an increasing emphasis on the things that Jesus had already accomplished).

The distinction between future and realized eschatologies is evident in the New Testament as well as in contemporary Christianity.

The eschatology of the apostle Paul makes for an especially interesting study. Paul's emphasis on the cross led his thinking in the direction of a future eschatology: God is now present in the midst of human suffering, which will be eliminated only at the return of Christ. In other contexts, his emphasis on the present admission of Gentiles led his thinking in the opposite direction: Christians are a new creation already set free from the power of sin.

Give Regularly
The Reconciliation offering is divided in two parts with one half going back to the region from which it was received and one half going to the General Reconciliation Ministry administered by the Reconciliation Ministry Commission made up of volunteers from around our church body.

The regions choose the method of distributing the funds that remain within their own area. These programs vary widely between regions. Contact your region for a current listing of projects funded in your area.

The Reconciliation Ministry Commission receives, reviews and allocate funds for grant requests submitted by our general ministries, higher education institutions, regions and recognized ministries of the church whose proposals meet the grant guidelines.

Congregational grant requests are to be submitted to their Region for funding.

Prairie Avenue has not collected this offering for many years. Your generous support towards anti-racism/pro-reconciliation efforts will assist to ensure the human dignity of every child, to ensure all have access to Christ’s abundance, to fully flourish in education, and financial stability, and friendships across God’s human diversity. Won’t you join the chorus in shouting out Hosanna, Hosanna blessed are we who come in the name of the Lord. Thank you for your generosity. OUR GOAL IS $200
