2019 CHRISTMAS OFFERING
Over the past couple of months particularly, we have been greatly encouraged to see how so many in our church family have responded to the LORD by making sacrifices to help and serve people in our church family and in our community. In that same spirit, we want to be a blessing to those close by and to those far away. This Christmas, would you consider giving financially above and beyond your regular giving to the Lord by contributing to our Mission City Christmas Offering?
We are committed to sending the initial 25% of our Christmas offering in three equal contributions to the following ministries:
- LOCAL: Pregnancy Resource Centre Brant PRC Brant is a not-for-profit Christian charitable organization that focuses on being available to support those who are facing an unexpected pregnancy or experiencing post-abortion grief.
- REGIONAL: Safe Families Safe Families is a movement fuelled by compassion to keep children safe and families intact. Safe Families temporarily hosts children and provides a network of support for families in crisis while they get back on their feet. Safe Families volunteers serve without compensation and are motivated by the compassion and grace that they first received through Jesus Christ.
- GLOBAL: Reaching & Teaching International (to support missionary Ryan Robertson) Reaching & Teaching exists to reach the peoples of the world through evangelism and by meeting the great need for deep discipleship, pastoral preparation, leadership training, and theological education around the world. In the spring of 2020, Pastor Kevin will be travelling to India with Reaching & Teaching to train local pastors in places that are hard to reach with the gospel. These pastors will then return to their communities to reach and teach others with the hope of the gospel.
This past year was an opportunity for us to pursue a faith-filled and mission-oriented budget. This has helped us engage in the many ministry opportunities the LORD has given us: from local and global missions, to hiring support staff, to building up our core ministries toward our overall mission of making disciples of Jesus Christ. So, once we give away the first 25% of our Christmas Offering to these three ministries, the next portion of the offering will be used to make up our year-end budget difference. Whatever remains from the offering beyond that will be sent away to gospel-advancing opportunities in our church, from our church, or beyond our church.
As you consider the end of the year and your personal giving to the LORD, how might He be leading you to participate — courageously and generously — in this year’s Christmas Offering?
Christmas Offering envelopes will be available at church every weekend through the remainder of December. You can find those special envelopes at the Welcome Desk in the lobby and/or on the chairs in the Worship Centre.
We trust the LORD will bless you with a keen awareness of His love, grace, and mercy upon you this Christmas season.
