Throughout the Advent Series we will be taking a special offering, above and beyond our regular tithes and offerings. As a church we will look to be particularly generous regarding three areas of Outward Focused Ministry.  Like last year, we will once again break down our Advent Offering as Close, Near, Far:

 

CLOSE:
Safford School. We will do a food + toy drive to help the school as they provide for families who are struggling this time of year. Bring non-perishable food (LIST) and toys to put in a box that is in the lobby of Safford School. Please bring your gifts by Sunday, December 11th.

NEAR:
Foster Care & Adoption is a ministry of Redemption Church that we have committed to be part of for the long haul. We will be taking up a special financial offering to help us continue to be used by the Lord in reaching out to the marginalized and forgotten of our society. Learn more about this ministry HERE.

FAR:
We are establishing a relationship with a ministry in Guatemala called Champions in Action. We plan to send a team there this summer and a portion of our Advent Offering will go toward this incredible ministry (HERE is an article Redemption Flagstaff wrote about their trip to Guatemala with Champions in Action). If you are interested in participating in this effort, join us at the Guatemala Summer Trip Info Meeting: December 11th @ 12:30pm @ Connect Coworking more info HERE

 

YOU CAN GIVE TOWARDS THE ADVENT OFFERING IN TWO WAYS:

  1. 1. ONLINE HERE (just mark the giving fund as “Advent Offering”)
  2. 2. At a service on Sunday, simply write “Advent Offering” on a giving envelope and place the donation in one of our giving boxes.
