Dear Partners in Ministry,
The Annual Christmas Offering is a special over-and-above gift. Since the first Christmas Offering in 2013, mission partners and friends raised $44,327! The funds have been distributed to help hundreds of local kids and adults experience the love of Jesus. Here are some past recipients:
Sugar Creek Summer Day Camp
Summer Lunch Program
Wilderness Camp and National Youth Gatherings
Refugee Resettlement in Dane County
a Resurfaced Parking Lot for guests, members and parents dropping off kids at our former Primary School
Reach Out Lodi, and the former Lodi Food Pantry, (now a part of Reach Out Lodi),
Local Police Department
The basic idea is the same as the last several years. As we buy gifts for other people, we want our largest, most extravagant gift to go to Jesus by loving our neighbor.
The 2020 goal is $3600. 100% of this offering will be divide equally between these two causes:
REACH OUT LODI. “To provide a safe and welcoming community center where people can gather and a community store that supports individuals and families struggling to provide for their basic living needs.”
THE COMMON GROUND CHURCH. “Together for the common good, for you!”
Gifts received by December 31, 2020 will be received and recorded as a 2020 donation on giving statements.
Join this wonderful way to show Jesus’ love to people in these very challenging times.
Pastor Michael Lee
