Each year, we give away our entire Candlelight Christmas Eve offering to missional causes. We have this audacious vision that God will use us to afford children and families living in poverty the same opportunities we have for quality education, health, food, and economic security, helping to give them a future with hope.
Two examples of how the 2020 offering will be put to use are:
We may not be able to fix 2020, but together we can build a better future together for the most vulnerable among us. If you are able, please consider making a contribution.
Here are examples of the impact your gift can make:

Merry Christmas, ____!
During this holiday season, I want you to know how grateful I am to have you in my life. This year, I have given a special gift in your honor – a gift that could change the life of a child.
Each year Church of the Resurrection gives away their entire Christmas offer to projects benefitting low-income children and families – half to be used locally, the other half in our partnerships in the developing world. The focus this year is early childhood education – preschools, primarily.
Locally, we’ll be helping to expand pre-k education for children living around our partner schools, along with providing nutrition and health support. These are kids who otherwise would not have a chance to attend preschool. Internationally, we’re supporting fifteen preschools and three elementary schools in extremely low income communities where we have partnerships in Malawi, South Africa, Honduras and a school for refugee children in Lebanon. You can learn more about the offering at https://cor.org/christmasoffering.
I'd also like to invite you to join me for Church of the Resurrection's beautiful Candlelight Christmas Eve service. Because of COVID, our services all online this year. I’m going to be worshipping at ____, but there are a variety of service times on December 23 and 24. Here’s the link for the full schedule https://cor.org/christmas. All you have to do is go to cor.org/live for a service of beautiful music and an inspiring message of hope that we can all use this year!
I pray God's blessings for you this Christmas!
