2019 “My Sacrifice” Christmas Offering
Christmas is the season of giving, and it leads us to naturally reflect on the gift of Jesus that was given to us. We can never repay Jesus for all that He has given to us, but our response toward Him should be one that overflows with generosity for others. The Grove Church is being challenged this December to pray and seek God’s direction for a sacrificial gift (above what you normally give). We are excited about how God will take and multiply this offering.
Can I give online?
Yes, you can give online using the “Online Giving” tab in the menu, but just be sure you designate your gift for the “Christmas Offering.”
How will this offering be used?
We will be using this offering in two different ways.
- 50% of the offering will help us jump start our vision for 2019. We are planning in faith that God will lead us further into the community in 2019 to make a greater impact for His Kingdom. We’ll be sharing specifics of this vision as we roll into January 2019.
- The other 50% of the offering will be split evenly among three different ministries/organizations that we support and have partnered with. You’ll be hearing personally from each of these during our Sunday morning services in December.
Adrian Burnett Elementary
Our church adopted Adrian Burnett Elementary back in August of 2017. Over the last year, our partnership and support of this school has really grown. This offering is another way we can be a blessing and source of support to them. For more info about our partnership with Adrian Burnett Elementary you can click HERE.
Club 180 Ministry in Kentucky
We are sending a team of students and adults to serve alongside this ministry during the holiday break. You can find out more about this ministry and the trip by clicking HERE.
We have partnered with this ministry in various ways over the years including mission trips and the annual Christmas adoption/shoe box project. This is a ministry that values Jesus-centered disciple making and church planting. We’re continuing to explore ways we can further be involved in this ministry in the future, but your generosity this Christmas will go directly to help their active ministry in Bulgaria.

When can I give?
You can give at any of the following services using the Christmas Offering envelopes that are available. Please give your Christmas offering on Sunday, December 15, Sunday, December 22, Monday, December 23, or online through December 31. Just be sure to designate you offering for the “Christmas Offering.”
Should I just give toward this offering instead of the normal offering?
We are urging people to give toward the Christmas offering with a sacrificial gift. In other words, we still count on your faithful and regular giving in the month of December to continue doing our normal ministry plans. We know God will give wisdom and faith about how you make a sacrifice this December to give sacrificially in addition to your regular monthly giving.
