Another Reason I love you…

I know our church loves to help people, but in the fall I always get a very small concern that we are asking too much.

It seems like the fall is full of our major projects serving the community (Rebuilding Together and Great Day of Service).  People give of their time and skills to make a real difference.  This year, we added hosting a thanksgiving dinner for anyone who is lonely or lacking in this season…and the response to help has been phenomenal.

We also see the chance to help people in need financially.  We are gearing up for our Christmas Eve Offering that entirely goes to help people facing financial needs and crisis.  If this year is anything like the last few years people will give tens of thousands of dollars.

As if that isn’t enough, you now have a chance to adopt a child locally at Christmas through our Angel Tree AND we just finished collecting “Shoeboxes” full of gifts that will get sent to children on the other side of the world.  I love it, Suncrest.

Two cool things about this year.  First, I just found out our boxes are going to India…where I just got home from.  And, more importantly, Suncrest collected them across all campuses this year and we ended up with 371 – over 100 more than last year.

Way to go…in ways large and small, you are letting God use you to change a life!

  1. I remember in High School when Suncrest went to Chicago to Miss Pearl’s for Thanksgiving. That’s been one of my favorite Thanksgivings that I did. Suncrest has always been a church full of giving and that’s one of the reasons why I love it.
