On Christmas, we celebrate the birth of Jesus. And as we all know, no birthday party would be complete without a gift! For the third year in a row, as our church gives a birthday gift to Jesus, we have the opportunity to radically change people’s lives and futures and make a difference on a global scale. We invite you to be part of this initiative by giving to help support this year’s effort. We’ll announce what we’re giving to Jesus this year on our Christmas Celebration Services and on Christmas Eve!
International Justice Mission (IJM), is a global organization that protects the poor and vulnerable from violence and exploitation throughout the developing world.
Columbia, Peru, and Bolivia (The Andean Region) are among the top 20 countries in the world for gender based violent crimes. Millions of women and children are victims of sexual violence, intimate partner violence, and femicide (the intentional killing of women or girls because of their gender).
In 2018 we entered a key partnership joining with IJM to provide rescue and healing for these vulnerable women and children in this area.
Syrian refugees are people who have left everything behind to find safety away from an unstable region, often fleeing with only their clothing and a few possessions. In response to this crisis, the Made Clean Project—an initiative aimed at providing a laundry service to Syrian refugees, while simultaneously running a gospel-centered children’s program—was launched.
Through this project and the simple dignity that comes with being able to wash and wear clean clothing, God has opened incredible doors of ministry and goodwill to those who need it desperately.
