It’s that time of year of again! The time - during the holiday season - when before we buy Christmas gifts for others, we bring our first gift to Jesus. We call it The BIG Give. Begin praying about your gift to the Lord on His birthday. Together, we can make a BIG difference.
Here’s a quick overview:
Q: What is the BIG Give?
The BIG Give is Community Church making a difference in people’s lives during the holiday season. We do this by giving our 1st & best gifts to Jesus during the Christmas season.
When you give to The BIG Give, you are helping Community Church reach others:
Angel Tree Program – Making Christmas extra special for families from our Messiah’s Market food assistance program & in partnership with Mobile Hope.
Messiah's Market – Our food pantry has been providing food assistance for over 10 years, free of charge. Did you know that we don't receive all of our food by donations? Your support helps us keep Messiah's Market running for over 450 food insecure families every year.
OneCommunity Serve Day – Providing "boots on the ground" work across our community, supporting various local organizations. This year we remodeled the Loudoun Abused Women's Shelter, Mobile Hope, helped a Habitat for Humanity home, landscaped 2 public schools, partied at 2 nursing facilities, and more!
Virginia Academy Student Sponsorships – Changing the lives of kids who just need a chance.
Reaching Teens – In 2019, we plan to hold 12 major events to reach teens in our community through our Fire Escape ministry. We want to invest in the next generation!
Date Nights – Every parent deserves a date - and we make that possible every Saturday in February. This huge undertaking supports our community when we open our doors for over 500 kids every Saturday.
Church Partnerships – Helping bring a little heaven to earth by strengthening other churches.
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 16th.
Q: How can we give?
You can give one of several ways—1) on Sunday mornings in a designated The Big Give envelope; 2) our website or Community Church app (select Big Give in the fund dropdown menu).
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.
