We've been planning and praying for The Christmas Offering that is happening this Sunday!
I know it's a busy time of year and some people may not be there this weekend. So, we wanted to make it as easy as possible for you to participate in the offering whether you will be there or not.
Please take some time to prayerfully seek God about your gift. Then, to make your donation, go to our website and follow the instructions.
We are excited to be able to accomplish these objectives through the Christmas Offering and expand our reach for Christ:
- Christmas Benevolence Fund - the $15,000 allocated for this part of the offering will be used to assist those in our congregation with needs throughout 2016.
- Reaching Unreached People Groups - with $50,000 we are going to help 5 entrepreneurial missionaries take the Gospel where no one has taken it. We are going to an island of 500,000 Muslims off the coast of Africa with less than 50 believers and starting an English school. We are going to Egypt and starting a Cross Fit gym. We are going to a Muslim neighborhood in Kenya and helping to expand an English school, a primary school and a medical clinic there to reach out to Muslim refugees. We are going to the UAE and starting a tourist company that will work with two different unreached people groups from the Arabian Penninsula. And lastly, we are going to another country in northern Africa, into ISIS's back yard, and starting an English school there. One very exciting element here is that our $50,000 will be matched with a grant, doubling our gift to $100,000! So, whether you're a part of First Assembly of not, you can give a doubling gift today to touch this part of the world that desperately needs it!
If you have any questions, please let me know. You can send your questions to this email address.
