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!

Plant-Grow-Harvest: The 2014 Church Extension Fall Offering

The General Church Extension Department is excited to announce the 2014 Church Extension Fall Offering. Beginning on November 2nd, churches across the denomination will begin receiving this offering to launch new churches. The offering will support the training of church planters, assist church plants with start up costs, and enable new churches to launch effectively.

The theme for the Fall promotion is "Plant – Grow – Harvest". In God's grand design for creation, he made every living thing – plant, animal and human beings – with the blessed potential of reproducing in kind (Genesis 1:11 ff). I am convinced that if a new church is properly and effectively planted, it will grow and will enjoy a bountiful harvest in due time. This is the driving theme for this fall's promotion. We must plant and grow new churches if we ever expect to experience an abundant harvest. We are financially assisting four churches and/or ministries this year through the General Church Extension Department. I am expecting that six additional new churches may need assistance before the council yearend. Your offering is a vital part in the dollars we have to invest in these new congregations. Please do your very best in promoting this vitally important offering in your local church. God has greatly blessed our new churches through your sincere concern, passion and sacrificial giving. We cannot continue to start new churches without your help!

You may contribute online, give to the special offering at your church, or contribute by mail. Click the "Donate" button below to donate online. Offerings will be received at each local church until November 23rd, 2014.
