Every year we are given the opportunity to offer a Christmas gift to Jesus. We do it in the form of a monetary gift. This gift does a couple of important things for us.
First, it is an opportunity to express our love and appreciation for what Jesus, and all his valuable teachings mean to us. We love to give gifts to our family and friends as an expression of love, and likewise we give a gift to Jesus.
Second, this gift helps us, the Crossroads family, continue being the hands and feet of Jesus in our community and beyond. Because we truly offer an unlimited welcome to all people, we have a unique and precious gift of God’s unconditional love to offer everyone in our community. Collectively our Christmas offerings help us to keep doing that, day in and day out.
Our goal this year is $140,000. That amount enables us to close out the year in the black and have enough money to move into 2018 with a continued vision to change the world one person, family and community at a time.
'Statistics show us that in Loudoun County there are more teenage suicides, depression, anxiety, stress and pressure than ever before.
In that light, we have some new and creative ministries being formed for 2018 that are going to enable us to be present to children, students, families and adults in healing and helpful ways.
Jesus was born to serve people who were hurting and afraid. Our Christmas offering helps us be the hands of Jesus’ healing love and grace all around us.
You can make your gift by marking it on the envelope in the Resource Guide and drop it in the offering basket or mail it. Or you can make your gift online at crossroadsnova.org or via the GOTgo App. We have already received nearly $7,000.
Please, prayerfully consider the monetary gift you want to give to Jesus this year. After all, it is his birthday.
