During the month of December, we set a goal to raise at least $15,000 for our Christmas offering to be distributed among three selected ministries: Liberty Visions Learning Center, Pioneer Bible Ukraine, and Second Missionary Journey. Any offering given beyond this goal will be distributed to Feed My Starving Children in support of our 2024 MobilePack event.
We are so excited to see how we can support these ministries as they continue living out God's call upon their lives! In 2022, our church was able to raise more than $23,000 through our Christmas offering, and we would love to be able to meet our goal for this year as well! You can give online by clicking the button below and selecting "Christmas Offering" on the dropdown menu, or give in-person during Sunday services through Dec. 31st.
Please see the videos below to learn more about how your giving can make a Kingdom impact this Christmas! Thank you so much for your incredible support!
James and Kristin Amos have lived in Kenya with their 3 children since 2020. James works to train local pastors and missionaries, while Kristin helps to operate Awaken Love International, providing for the daily needs of the children at Gideon Children's Home. James and Kristin are currently raising funds to build a permanent home in Kenya; we have pledged $2,500 of our Christmas offering towards this project. For more details, read here.
From founder and director, Chipo Makaya: "The challenge facing Liberty Visions Learning Center is the inadequacy of its current premises. Situated on a limited 60ft by 50ft piece of land, the school's facilities are insufficient to meet the needs of the increasing number of underprivileged children seeking free education from the slums of Mji wa Huruma and Githogoro. Moreover, the existing land does not meet the government's minimum land requirements for educational institutions of 4 acres of land. To ensure the sustainability and expansion of our mission, Liberty Visions urgently requires additional land. Acquiring more land is essential to provide a safe, conducive, and adequately spacious environment for the children's education, ensuring their well-being and granting them access to the quality education they deserve." $10,000 of our Christmas offering has been pledged towards helping LVLC acquire additional land for their school.
Pioneer Bible Translators of Ukraine work to mobilize local churches and bring the Bible to unreached populations. Current efforts are focused on evacuating people from war zones, helping refugees and churches affected by war, and providing food, water, and heating supplies. $2,500 of this year's offering will go towards helping the work of PBT in Ukraine.
In April 2024, LCC will be hosting our next Mobile Pack event for Feed My Starving Children. Through this event, more than 100,000 meals will be assembled to distribute to FMSC food partners around the world. The total cost to pack these meals is $30,000; to date, we have raised a little over $15,000 to support this ministry opportunity. Any funds raised above our $15,000 Christmas offering goal will be allocated to covering the remaining cost of our 2024 FMSC Mobile Pack.
