Let us introduce ourselves
As disciples of Jesus, we are called to show and reflect the kindness of Jesus to the rest of the world. In these unprecedented times for us, our relationships, our communities, our country, and our world, we want to let the kindness of Jesus to shine through our generosity. That is why on Easter weekend 2020, we gave away our entire Easter offering to help those in need in our communities and around the world.
Over $90,000 was given back to organizations in our community. See the reveal video below!

Here are some stories of people and their generosity!
"We made Easter dinner and boxed it up for our family and than an extra one for each of them to give to their neighbor or another family member. It was fun to prepare and box up and line up the bags. Although our plan was to watch them all drive by and pick up there bag it still blessed us to know they picked it up and shared with other."

"I would rather call it neighborly than generous..but bringing baked goods to a man who lost his wife last fall...and a next door neighbor, just nice to share...and when we were in FL..we attended a small but very Gospel - based church On the Beach..it was called, Living Water Church on the Beach. It had Sunday services on the beach every Sunday unless it rained..then the service was held in a small bldg across the road from the beach. The people there served a lunch every Sunday after the service and never asked anyone to bring anything, but always welcomed everyone to stay for it and visit and share any needs. The members always supplied home cooked and baked items. Coffee was service every morning on the beach as you went to sit down..you could bring your own lawn chairs or use their chairs.. They had sand pails out for the little kids to play with. They had communion every Sunday. When Hurricane Michael hit, their building was completely blown away..and they sent us pictures of a white tent they now used. So we sent a donation to them to help them build a new bldg. They also had a homemade lunch for the police and fire dept. every month. They probably only had about 30 to 40 members that lived and attended the church, the rest were vacationers. They welcomed everyone with open arms and we just felt God's presence there every time we attended. These people are a blessing to all who come."

"Since I couldn’t sew masks to donate to the mask drive, I gave money to someone who was sewing them, to help pay for the materials she used."
"We bought gift cards to a restaurant, for several neighbors that are teachers or work in health care. We delivered them with a smiley face balloon, a couple other little goodies, and thank you note."
