This Sunday is going to be historic in the life of C3 Church. Each year we direct our special Christmas Offering to a unique project. This year, we are using it “Here and There”. “Here” to help us make some needed updates to equipment (January will be our 5th anniversary since we launched in the theaters). And, “There” to launch our partnership with a sister church in Haiti.
You’ve been hearing us talk about our partnership with a Haitian church for the last few weeks…now we’d like to introduce you to them! Petit Goave Church is located in the city of Petit Goave, Haiti. The church is led by Jean Gardy August and his wife Roselaine, and they have an adopted son named Dackson (7). They’ve been leading the church for the past year, and there are some exciting things in the works. The have an average attendance of about 120 on Sundays, and they just launched a school with 20 students this year. As you can see from the pictures, they have begun construction on a new Worship Center and school rooms, and this will be one of the many projects where our partnership can make a tremendous difference.
The Christmas Offering will be Sunday, December 16th, and we’re asking everyone connected to C3 to pray about a generous gift, the idea being that our most extravagant gift this Christmas be to Jesus. Your donations will go to helping us upgrade and update some of our equipment here in Orlando, and to helping us launch our partnership with our new sister church in Haiti. Every dollar you give will be helping us Connect the Community with Christ, both HERE and THERE!
If you can’t bring your gift on December 16th, you can give online right now and select “Christmas Offering 2012” as the Fund. Please be praying along with my family about what we can give to make a difference in lives HERE and THERE this Christmas.
The best is yet to come!
PS Let me encourage you to be inviting like crazy for our special Christmas services which will be on Sunday, 12/23 at 9 or 10:20. On the 23rd for our Christmas services older children (K-5) will be joining us in Theater 10. Younger children will meet in their usual theaters. The next two weeks are going to be awesome!
