Learn more about the 2022 Christmas Offering

We're celebrating the birth of our Savior all month long! Check out the information below to learn how you can get involved this December.

Advent

Advent, one of the few calendar rhythms we celebrate every year, not only marks the birth of Jesus, but also the end of the year and beginning of another. It is a season of preparation, waiting, and anticipation.

Journey with us as we explore some of the Psalms of Ascent—psalms sung by the Israelite pilgrims to prepare their hearts, orient their minds, and increase their anticipation as they marched to Zion.

  • November 27 – Psalm 121
  • December 4 – Psalm 124
  • December 11 – Psalm 126
  • December 18 – Psalm 127
  • December 23 & 24 – Psalm 130
  • December 25 – Psalm 132

Christmas Offering

This year, our Christmas Offering will be one of the most strategic offerings in our history, investing in multiple areas where physical projects would not be allowed or even safe. 

The Christmas Offering will be collected in person on Sunday, Dec. 4. You can give in person or online through the end of December. 

"Declare his glory among the nations, his marvelous works among the peoples." Psalms 96:3
