We love this time of year – holiday parties, Christmas trees, hot chocolate and the spirit of generosity that seems to swell up in our society. There’s something about peace on earth and goodwill towards men that makes me think about other people a little more than usual.
At Timber Ridge, this is the time of year where we put feet to our faith – where we show our community and our world the love of Jesus through our annual Christmas offering called My Best Gift. The idea here is that as we buy gifts for other people, we want our largest, most extravagant gift to go to Jesus.
100% of this offering goes toward outside of our doors to help reach people with the good news of Jesus, engage our world through global mission and plant new churches.
This year’s offering will fund the following projects:
Global Engagement in Vietnam: We are partnering to serve and share God’s love in Vietnam. Donations to the My Best Gift offering will be used in Vietnam in two ways:
• Feeding Children: Without the financial support of Timber Ridge, the children in our school only eat one meal a day. A portion of our My Best Gift offering goes to making sure our kids at San Sa Ho school have proper meals and nutrition.
• Construction Projects: In 2018 we are sending teams to Sa Pa, Vietnam to work at our adopted school, San Sa Ho. My Best Gift offering will pay for the construction materials and costs.
Church & Campus Planting:
• We will be starting a BRAND NEW church in East Texas in 2018 and this offering will help with the start up funds for this new work.
Connecting Local Teenagers To The Gospel:
• A portion of our My Best Gift offering will go toward providing transportation to help local teenagers travel to New Mexico this summer for summer camp, where they will have the opportunity to experience and respond to the gospel of Jesus.
On Sunday, December 10th, we will receive the My Best Gift Offering during all our our weekend worship experiences at all campuses. We’re providing special giving envelopes and encouraging everyone to come prepared to give on that day.
If you’re going to be out of town on December 10th, or if you’d like to go ahead and donate now, you can give now online by clicking the button below. It’s safe, secure and simple to use.
Please pray about participating and jump in with us. God has given us a great mission, and we’re blessed to be able to join him in reaching our community for Christ and advancing the Gospel around the world.
