Each December we take up a special offering that we give away to help serve those most in need locally and globally. This year, our focus is coming alongside our ministry partners to help fund 12 critical projects. As a church we give above and beyond our normal giving in response to and in celebration of Christ’s generosity to us.
This year’s Advent offering will go toward the following organizations:
We're funding to fully sponsor a Christian retreat for over 35 at-risk urban youth where they will have opportunities to learn about Christ and build community with one another
We're funding to develop a Life Skills Training curriculum to support parents who are residents in the recovery phase
We're funding to expand the number of children being served in DC this year by helping fund the recruitment of additional church partners
