Mission

Advent Conspiracy

Worship fully. Spend less. Give more. Love all. Last year, Americans spent $755 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 2021 about Jesus!

The Dive Savannah

Once upon a Christmas, a veteran’s wish came true! Help us bless local veterans this Christmas by giving or volunteering with CCA’s ministry partner, The Dive.
