In October 2017, the church of Christ in Orland, CA made the difficult decision to dissolve due to declining membership. The building where the Orland congregation worshipped for about 60 years was sold and the proceeds were entrusted to the eldership of the Chico Church of Christ for dispersal. The Elders in Chico resolved to distribute these funds to several church of Christ affiliated organizations/missional efforts and, after prayerful consideration, chose the following groups to be the recipients of these funds.
Although we are disappointed in the situation that led to the closing of the Orland congregation, we are pleased to provide these contributions. May God bless the workers and the good work that each of these groups are doing in sharing the gospel of Christ.
