We are thrilled to announce that this year’s Giving It All Away Offering goal is set at $8,000!
The main recipient of the funds received will be the Albemarle Teen Challenge. Teen Challenge provides Christian discipleship training and pastoral care in a residential setting. The local residential program is a place where hurting women can come and pursue healing for various life controlling problems such as substance abuse for a 12-15 month period. Currently there are 15 women living in the Elizabeth City home. Our offering will be spent in a few different ways: $3,000 is needed to help convert their heating to natural gas, which will save them money over the long run. They also need money for curriculum (Bible study tools, books, etc.) which are needed for the next year. Further, some of the money will be used to begin a community garden as part of the recovery process.
The remainder of the money will be used in an internal fund for New Community Church families in crises or who have urgent needs in the year 2015.
It will all be given away. Please prayerfully consider how much God would like you to give during one of our Christmas Eve Services. Thank you!
