For 10 years, we’ve given away our Christmas Eve offering to organizations beyond the walls of our church. Christmas is not our birthday; it is Jesus’ birthday. So let’s give him something that he would enjoy!
The first offerings were given solely to the Ruth Meier’s Hospitality House. In recent years, they have also been given to United Way’s Emergency Homeless Shelter and other regional ministries like new church starts and the Baaken Oil Rush Ministry.
In 2018, we raised $51,408, clearing the goal of $50,000, split between the United Way’s Homeless Shelter and new church starts in North Dakota and South Dakota.
We’ve given away more than $400,000 over 10 years to organizations beyond our walls.
Plan now for the Christmas Eve 2019 offering and join us as we give extravagantly! You can give anytime online by choosing the Half-a-Christmas fund.
