Each year during Christmas, we collect a special Christmas Offering. This is a gift that is above-and-beyond offering, and it gives us the opportunity to support a few special projects the elder board has prayerfully chosen.

Thank you for giving to the 2020 Christmas Offering. You gave over $272,000 despite it being a tough year of uncertainty in all of our lives. You truly are making a difference in a world full of need.

This year’s offering will go towards a variety of projects: financial relief for local and global partners who have been hit hard by the coronavirus pandemic, ministry expansion projects in Ethiopia and India, funding for our West Campus, The Kindness Kitchen ministry, and improvements toward our facility. Get more details about what this year’s offering will fund below.

Please contact us if you have questions about this year’s Christmas Offering, and thank you for your generosity.

$100,000
COVID RELIEF FOR LOCAL AND GLOBAL MISSIONS PARTNERS

We recognize that many of our local and global ministry partners have struggled during the pandemic. We want to bless these organizations by giving them an extra gift to help make up their financial shortfalls.

Potential recipients are Mission Adelante, Gateway of Hope, Worship Wagon, Lifesong Orphanages and more. We will work with our local and global partners to assess need and give to them accordingly.

$50,000
FOR OUR WEST CAMPUS

We had originally planned to fully launch our West Campus this fall, but it seemed wise to hold off for a year as we navigate through the coronavirus pandemic.

Even though the launch of the in-person worship services is delayed, our West Campus staff continues to grow in their relationships with the community a they build a core team of leaders. They are developing a variety of discipleship opportunities at the West Campus Ministry Center and online through their YouTube Channel.

These funds will continue to support our staff and their efforts as we look forward to an official launch of the campus next fall.

$50,000
FOR PROJECTS IN ETHIOPIA AND INDIA

A strong part of our church’s DNA is our involvement in global missions partnerships and projects. $50k of the Christmas Offering will go towards funding church expansion in the Omo River Valley of Ethiopia and in India.

In Ethiopia, we will purchase much needed vehicles to allow pastors and leaders to gain easier access to remote villages from our two pastor training centers.

In India, we will help complete third phase of a life center that is a hub for growing ministry in that area of the country.

$50,000
FOR THE KINDNESS KITCHEN

This summer, we kicked off The Kindness Kitchen, and it has been far more successful than we imagined. The Kindness Kitchen meets the needs of thousands of people by supplying meals to families in need, as a gift to schools, businesses and other organizations, and much, much more.

This portion of the Christmas Offering will allow us to continue to spread the impact of this developing ministry in a variety of ways.
