As we approach the Christmas season and give gifts to our friends and loved ones, we want to give our first and very best gift to God through our First Gift offering.
This year we are investing every dollar that comes in from our First Gift offering to something that will alleviate the pain that over 64 million people feel! We’ve said from the beginning we want to be a church that is a blessing and a benefit to our community and we really mean it! In 2019 we’re going to practice putting love in action and sharing the love of Jesus in a very practical and tangible way. This special offering will enable us to pay off medical debt that exists right here in our own region.
Through an amazing non-profit called RIP Medical Debt, we will be paying off the medical debt of individuals right here in Texas. RIP Medical Debt has been featured on national news, USA Today, and even Last Week Tonight with John Oliver. Through your generosity, we will be able to wipe out that debt completely for hundreds of families. The incredible thing about RIP Medical Debt is that every $1 donated can pay off $100 in medical debt.
We believe we are to be a church that loves not just in words but also in action. But in order to do this, we need every single one of you to join with us for the special First Gift offering! This year, we’re asking everyone to consider what it is they can give to this amazing cause. What would it be like to have a weight like that lifted off of those in our community? We wholeheartedly believe that as we all partner together, we can make a significant impact in our community.
This special First Gift offering will be above and beyond our regular tithes and offerings, so please be in prayer about the gift God would lead you to give. Let’s start this Christmas Season off right by eliminating over 1.5 million dollars of medical debt for Texans just like you.Give Now
