When we learn acceptance through the eyes of Jesus, we see people who are like us: in need of caring and embracing the love of Jesus. Thank you for bringing this important reflection to mind through the Season of Peace and this Offering!

We've always supported the Christmas Joy Offering because it contributes to the well-being of those who have made a life decision to serve the church. It helps them not have to choose between housing and food.
