Christmas Offering

A MESSAGE FROM THE ELDERS: We’re excited to have the opportunity again this year to take up a Christmas offering (receipted), for the month of December. EVERY DOLLAR will go to these ministry needs to bless and support what God is doing in these ministries. Over the years, due to your kind and generous gifts, we’ve been able to give tens of thousands of dollars to help and encourage many ministries. The elders are asking you to prayerfully consider giving generously again this year. Let’s work together to bless many this Christmas! The more generous you are, the greater the impact of our blessing on these ministries. The elders will determine the amount each ministry receives.

BETUEL HOUSE FUND

deogloriasibiu.ro

We have been a part of the church plant in Sibiu, Romania, for the last few years. Their Senior Pastor, Betuel, his wife Sanda, and their three kids have been living with Betuel’s parents. This makes it difficult to do ministry and have people over to connect. Betuel and Sanda have some property and have started to build their own home. However, they are only able to progress with construction as funds become available. We would love to bless this wonderful family this Christmas by providing enough funds for them to finish the upper floor of the house and maybe the roof. Betuel has shown himself to be above reproach, a very dedicated and hard-working servant of Christ, and wise in handling finances (he has a financial background). He and they are very in sync with us, so the prospect of blessing this wonderful family is very exciting to us.

FRESH START SUPPORT SERVICES

This is a faith-based, pro-life ministry that provides housing and parenting supports to pregnant and parenting women and their children. In 2020, Fresh Start transitioned from a 24/7 group housing model, to providing separate affordable apartments to young families in need. In addition, they are working on two new apartments – one will be a dedicated rapid re-housing unit and the other will be set aside specifically for indigenous families, who have a disproportionate rate of homelessness. The Executive Director of Fresh Start Support Services is a part of our church congregation.
