Gift of Hope
See people. Meet needs. Give hope.
The Gift of Hope is a special offering we will take during our Christmas Eve services. The Gospel of Jesus Christ propels us to look beyond ourselves with compassion to the unmet needs of the impoverished and disadvantaged in our world. God calls us to see and serve the poor. We will give joyfully so people can receive food, clothing, education, spiritual care, and more. We're giving much more than dollars this year: we're giving hope.
In 2023, the Gift of Hope Offering will benefit children, youth, and adults living in our local community. The needs are great in Gresham, Rockwood, Portland, and closely surrounding communities. This is our neighborhood, which God has called us to love and impact. Please read about the 4 partners we have established that will receive the funds from our Gift of Hope Offering.
For our global impact in the 2023 holiday season, we are excited to announce that the Return of the Tithe funds from the Foursquare Church will allow us to invest $54,017 globally. Those funds will benefit the church in Huye, Rwanda, as well as support other missionary work being done abroad. Read more here.
