As we have walked through the Letter of James together this fall, we’ve been learning how to be doers who act, which is why we’ve decided to call this year’s Christmas Offering MERCY.
Mercy is about acting. It’s about using what God has given us to relieve suffering and choose compassion and kindness over judgment.
With this year’s Christmas Offering, we have the opportunity to put our faith into action, to partner together in God’s Kingdom work, and to show His Mercy to those around us. What better way to close out a difficult year?
We decided to try something new this year and instead of a specific amount raised for each project, we will divide the offering equally into three parts: the refugee crisis in Lebanon, human trafficking, and local Kingdom expressions.
It’s our hope and prayer to raise at least $50,000 towards each one.
We hope you will join us in person or online over the next few weeks as we share more about these places around the world that God is at work, and share ways we can partner together as a church family to bring Mercy.

Would you begin praying even now, for each of these projects and partnerships and ask God how He might be leading you to respond?
Thank you for journeying with us.
