The Perfect Gift
One of the most powerful things that Christians claim is that God saw the great needs of the world and offered a perfect gift, Jesus Christ, a gift that brought God and humanity closer together as Jesus is Emmanuel, which means “God is with us.” During the Advent Season one of the ways we offer our own gifts is through the Christmas Joy Offering. We participate in this offering because God has shown us how powerful it is to “BE WITH.”
Because God is with us . . .
We see the potential of students of color who will become our leaders and we seek to come alongside them, encourage them and be with them.
We see church workers who have critical financial needs and we come alongside them, to assist them — We are with them.
THE CHRISTMAS JOY OFFERING WILL BE RECEIVED ON THE 4TH SUNDAY IN ADVENT, DECEMBER 22, AND ON CHRISTMAS EVE (envelopes will be in the pew racks). GIFTS CAN ALSO BE MAILED TO THE CHURCH OFFICE AT ANY TIME DURING ADVENT WITH THE NOTATION: CHRISTMAS JOY
