Together making a difference in our neighborhood and beyond!
It’s that time of year of again! The time—during the holidays—when together, we make a huge difference in our neighborhood & beyond, in Jesus’ name. It’s time for the BIG give!!
Here’s a quick overview:
Q: What is the BIG Give?
The BIG Give is Community Church making a difference in people’s lives in LoCo & beyond during the holiday season. We do this by giving our 1st & best gifts to Jesus during the Christmas season. This allows our church to send out financial gifts to organizations changing lives.
Q: Who are we going to help?
The proceeds from the BIG Give will go to these programs:
Loudoun Abused Women’s Shelter (LAWS) – Providing shelter, counseling & hope to victims of domestic violence & sexual assault.
Angel Tree Program – Making Christmas extra special for over 200 families from our Messiah’s Market food assistance program & families in partnership with LAWS.
Church Partnerships – Helping bring a little heaven to earth by strengthening other churches. We plan to bless CrossCentral Church & Recovery Center in TX, Ministerio Cristiano in Puerto Rico & ARC (Association of Related Churches), a church planting organization.
Tree of Life Ministry (TOLM) – Providing education, food & housing to over 600 kids in a school & orphanage in Honduras, the 2nd poorest region in the western hemisphere.
Wingler House – Healing the ache of loneliness for the seniors at Wingler House. “If we had a ride we’d love to come to church!”
Virginia Academy Student Sponsorship – Changing the lives of kids who just need a chance. Two of last year’s graduates were the 1st in their families to go to college!
Down Syndrome Association of Northern VA – Helping support families adjusting to the birth of a child with Down Syndrome by providing the educational, financial, medical, legal & social support they desperately need.
Q: When do we give?
First, let me ask you to pray about what a meaningful gift would be from you to the Lord this Christmas. Once you’ve done that, then simply give. The BIG give offerings will be received now through Sunday, December 10th.
Q: How can we give?
You can give one of several ways—1) on Sunday mornings; 2) at any of our giving Kiosks; 3) through our website or Community Church app.
Q: Did you know?
In addition to your generosity, the Angel Tree program needs a limited number of volunteers to go out and purchase gifts for the families who are in need. This year's shopping day will take place on Saturday, Dec 9 at 7am. If you're interested, please register here.
Thank you! Know that through the BIG Give many lives will be blessed & on top of all that, Jesus’ name will be glorified.
2017 was an amazing year! From Date Nights, to the first annual OneCommunity serve day, and the many lives changed through water baptism, join us on a journey to revisit what God has done in our lives.
