We have an opportunity…
…to serve, be generous, and mobilize our own networks so that we can give together. A number of Sundays throughout the year are designated as opportunities for recognizing and supporting particular ministries.Many times, an offering is included, which is used to fund the work of these programs and ministries. Through your support, and the support of your church, we fund hundreds of ministries each year.
Let’s live out the Great Commission, together!
When you and your church give on Special Sundays and The Advance, you enable vital ministries that change the world, one life at a time. Being generous offers refuge in times of disaster, promotes peace and justice, provides scholarships and student loans, reaches out to the community, teaches skills to encourage self-sufficiency, and shares the love of Jesus Christ with God’s people everywhere.
