Loving our Community at Thanksgiving and Christmas

RiskLove_fullbrushWe challenged everyone to serve in the month of October and to make “Risk Love” a lifestyle! We’ve heard from partners in the community like First Fruits Farm, Westminster Resuce Mission and Alpha Pregnancy Center that you responded in a big way! They were all very appreciative and encouraged.

And now, here we are at the Thanksgiving and Christmas season of 2014. Many of you are asking about places you can serve and/or give to for Thanksgiving and Christmas this year. That is wonderful! There’s nothing better than to share with others in need during the holiday season. God uses it in amazing ways to help us see the world and other people the way He does–through eyes of love.

Of course, there are many opportunities. Here are just a few from some of our local ministry partners! We love them and think they are doing awesome work in our community. Also be sure to check our complete list of local partners. Feel free to contact them, too!
