Christmas Offering

Begins Sunday, November 25, 2018.

Goal:  $3,000 — So far we’ve raised half of the money for our $3,000 Christmas Offering!  Thank you for giving, and keep it up!

The 2018 Christmas Offering officially kicks off this Sunday, November 25!  The purpose of the Christmas Offering is to give us an opportunity to give over and above our normal tithes and offerings to a very special cause.

The theme this year is “Excel,” based on 2 Corinthians 8:7:  “See that you also excel in this grace of giving.”  Why does God give us more than we need?  To give to those in need.  And there are some big needs in our world today.  Billions of people around the world have still never heard the gospel of Jesus Christ.  Religious freedom is under attack in our country like never before.  And the unborn in America are still in grave danger.  This year’s Christmas Offering will give you the opportunity to share your resources to help meet these 3 big needs:

  1. World Missions ($1,000) – Support missionaries around the world through the International Mission Board of the SBC (Lottie Moon Christmas Offering).
  2. Religious Freedom ($1,000) – Support the ministry of Alliance Defending Freedom, a non-profit litigation organization that provides pro bono assistance to Christians who are being attacked for their faith – people like bakers, florists, medical professionals, and Christians in the military.
  3. Saving the Preborn ($1,000) – Support the ministry of the Pregnancy Center and Clinic in Lafayette, which ministers to women facing unexpected pregnancies in the hope of leading them to Christ and preventing abortion.
