Special Christmas Offering

I’m so excited about our opportunity to give in an over-and-above way to bless some people in real need. This Sunday we’ll be taking a Special Christmas Offering that will will be used in the following ways:

  • 50% will be used in 2010 for benevolence to families inside and outside of Second Mile who have been hit hard by the economic downturn. It’s no secret that this is a significant—and growing—group of people. Gifts will provide groceries, power, and other essential resources for families in need.
  • 50% will be given to Biblical Hope, a ministry devoted to providing biblical counseling for women. More than half of these women are not yet followers of Christ, and get referred to Biblical Hope by Crisis Pregnancy Center. These women are often stuck in life-dominating trials and the ministry is a great source of encourage-ment and truth. Gifts will provide Bibles, resources, and other practical items for these hurting women.

If you’d like to participate in this special offering, simply designate your check with “Special Christmas Offering” and either bring it on Sunday or mail it to PO Box 1137, Queen Creek, AZ 85242.

    My brother and sister-in-law, Randy and Pat Hasty are attending your church and have told me of your church desire to “be Christ” to the outside. From what I am reading, it appears you have a good balance, strong biblical teaching and strong application, ie. not just being hearers of the Word. We will keep the leadership at Second Mile in our prayers, that they would continually be humble before the Lord (so many churches crumble because of pride). In the meantime, enjoy the nice weather as we here in the Grand Rapids, Michigan area enjoy a light freezing rain which looks very nice on the snow and lights but wreaks havoc to those who need to drive on this Christmas morning. From a brother and sister in the Lord, Jim and Sue Rushcamp
