At this time of year, we remember how grateful we are for all that God is doing in our lives. We come together as family and friends, celebrate the holidays, and many times share gifts of love.
So, why should we not share gifts with (and through) our church family? This year, we invite you to partner with us in our Christmas offering to help advance the mission of God through FIRST.

What is the Christmas offering?

This offering provides a one-time intentional gift of generosity above and beyond our normal giving. We specifically target mission partners or mission-related opportunities we wish to expand. 

There will be 10 Kingdom Impact Initiatives in 4 Categories we want to bless with this Christmas offering:

  1. College Ministry >>

    • Axiom | Christian Campus Fellowship expansion

  2. Family Resources >>

    • Love Moves Us

    • Empowered to Connect

    • FIRST Student Ministry

  3. Community Impact >>

    • Night to Shine

    • Foster Parent Christmas Open House

    • Go Truck

  4. Church Planting >>

    • Ignite: Chicago church planting

    • Restoration House: Renaissance Christian Church

    • Strategic Ministry Coaching

For us to effectively accomplish the above, We have set a goal of $75,000 for our Christmas offering.

Would you consider giving a gift above and beyond your normal giving to impact lives and further the mission of God through our church?
