Worship fully. Spend less. Give more. Love all.

Last year, Americans spent $900 billion on gifts and parties, including $15 billion on “unwanted gifts.” One way we can change this is to reduce our Holiday spending by 10 percent and give this amount as a gift to the least, widows and orphans, in Jesus’ Name. Join Love for the Least Ministry and let’s make Christmas 2022 about Jesus!

Among this year’s Advent Conspiracy projects there are multiple opportunities to help provide food and relief for those in Africa, Iraq and Iran.

To give and or learn more about “Love for The Least” visit the links below:

Provide a beautiful gift of hope to veterans living in the Tiny Home Village and several homebound wounded – combat veterans.
Funds donated will bless 75 veterans this Christmas!

Any amount is greatly appreciated and wisely used.  This year the gift for our veterans includes:

  • a live wreath with a red bow. Delivered on December 15
  • a seat at the “Oh Night Divine” Veterans Black Tie Dinner to be held on December 16
  • a Christmas wish of their choice delivered in true Santa style on December 24
  • roundtrip airfare or busfare to see family in other towns or to bring a loved one to see them.

Visit their website to learn more.

While there are several ways to donate, one way is through CCA. Financial donatations can be made by check or Venmo app.  Please make a notation for “The Dive A Veteran Christmas” on the payment line of your check or in the Venmo app. Checks can be mailed to the church or left in the offering plate.
