Creating Community Online & Gathering in Creative Ways

The church is God’s people gathering together. Our gatherings have been and will be different for a season but we want to grow together as a body of believers.  We are thankful for your financial generosity which has made growing together in God’s word and community possible. We have invested in equipment and technology that makes livestream worship possible every week. Through our investment in Zoom, we were able to get many Sunday School classes, discussion groups, Women’s Bible Study, Tuesday Men’s Ministry, committees, and staff meetings online. We have also been able to gather in community in creative ways. We were able to have a drive-through Kindergarten Bible Presentation, in-person prayer gatherings, and in-person youth small groups.

Coming Alongside our Local and Global Community

Our denomination is partnering with The Outreach Foundation’s Beirut Compassion Fund to help in the midst of the recent devastating explosion in Beirut and we recently contributed $10,000 to the fund. Those funds will continue to bring hope and healing—in Christ’s name—to a beleaguered place. To learn more about how your financial generosity is making a difference in Beirut, please watch this video from The Outreach Foundation.

Through your generous giving, we have been able to help support various educational initiatives and local community partners.

STOCKS OR OTHER SECURITIES
IN CONJUNCTION WITH AN IRA WITHDRAWAL STRATEGY

When planning your IRA withdrawal strategy, you may want to consider making a charitable gift through a Qualified Charitable distribution (QCD).

If you are required to take minimum distributions (RMDs) from your IRA, the QCD can be counted in satisfying this requirement.

See your tax advisor on the requirements and advisability of such an approach, as well as the process to make a QCD contribution to the church.

LEGACY OF FAITH

Make a planned gift through your will or other means.
