It has become our tradition each year at Christmas to direct our generosity Here & There.
More than any other time of the year, we believe God's people should be deeply aware of our blessings at Christmas. We want to organize our efforts for maximum impact - both in the Lakeway and abroad.
This year, we provided nearly 150 bikes for children in our community through our local non-profit partner, Food on Foot. These bikes will not only bring joy to a child's life, but for many kids, the bikes will also serve as an additional form of transportation.
On December 20, we received a financial offering to help our international missions partners. As of December 27, our church has given over $18,000 to this offering! We are so excited to be a part of funding these missions for 2016, and you can still give to this offering through the final days of 2015.
Once again, we are giving to The Rescue Ministries, a long-term partner for us in The Philippines. Many Arrowhead attenders have traveled to this ministry and seen first-hand the gospel impact being made at the Bashaw Home for Youth in Cebu. It's our privilege to help.
Additionally, we will also support the Christmas offering of the International Mission Board, which goes to support nearly 5,000 missionaries worldwide as they work to reach the world for Christ. And as Arrowhead partners Taylor and Jessica Jolley continue to prepare to serve overseas, a percentage of our giving will go to support them. As you give, pray for our three mission partners!
