Our 2017 Advent Offering

Last year was our first experience of having an Advent Offering which replaced our February Sacrifice Offering. What a thrill it was to receive nearly $67,000! This offering helps in providing disaster relief when such events occur on our mission fields. It also assists in the operational costs. This past year funds from this account enabled us to send finances to Yemen for the Humanitarian Relief and just recently, to our churches in the Caribbean region due to the damage from the hurricane.

Our theme for the offering this year is The Way in a Manger. Truly, He is the way and the truth and the life… John 14:6. Let’s not hold back in sharing The Way with friends, neighbors and those around the world. You may not feel called to another country to share The Way, but we can all lighten the load of those who have responded to the call God has given them. Let’s work at making this offering the best yet! The goal this year is to raise $75,000.

Your gift will make a difference today!

About Church Extension

Why do we plant new churches and undertake revitalization projects? The evidence clearly demonstrates that starting strong new churches is the most effective evangelistic strategy in the world. People who don't currently attend church are more willing to try a new church than to visit an established church. A higher percentage of believers who attend new churches invite unsaved friends to church than do believers from established churches. Furthermore, the number of churches in America is not keeping up with population growth. That means there aren't enough entry points for the unsaved to find or be found by a community of believers.
