Odyssey has an annual budget of $100,000.00. In 2010 we donated almost $20,000.00 in total mission giving.  Odyssey gives 10% of all regular [undesignated] gifts to mission support outside our local church.  That 10% is broken down into 4 service areas:   1) Christian Church in Oklahoma, 2) Camp Christian of the NE Area of the Christian Church in Oklahoma, 3) Week Of Compassion, and 4) Church World Service. 

In addition to the above listed 10%, we also have special mission projects designated by the congregation at Easter, Thanksgiving, and Christmas. 

Week of Compassion

Week of Compassion is the relief, refugee and development mission fund of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in the United States and Canada. We seek to equip and empower disciples to alleviate the suffering of others through disaster response, humanitarian aid, sustainable development and the promotion of mission opportunities.

The Compassion Response Fund is an allocation the Week of Compassion Advisory Committee makes each year to enable WoC to respond quickly to requests for emergencies, disasters and other urgent and unexpected needs that arise. For 2011 the WoC Committee has allocated $471,449 for the Response Fund; it is the single largest item in the WoC program budget. In addition to what is budgeted for the Response Fund, WoC receives designated gifts for the Fund and for specific disasters, countries and situations that further enhance our capacity to respond to emergency needs and appeals.

Church World Service

Founded in 1946, Church World Service is a cooperative ministry of 35 Protestant, Orthodox, and Anglican denominations, providing sustainable self-help and development, disaster relief, and refugee assistance in some 80 countries.

Within the United States, Church World Service assists communities in responding to disasters, resettles refugees, promotes fair national and international policies, provides educational resources, and offers opportunities to join a people-to-people network of local and global caring through participation in CROP Hunger Walks, the Tools & Blankets Program, and the CWS Kits Program. http://www.churchworldservice.orgshapeimage_4_link_0
