Thanksgiving Offering 2018
This year's offering be divided among three needs:
- Hurricane Florence Relief
ReachGlobal Crisis Response is providing physical relief and spiritual support to the victims of Hurricane Florence, which made landfall in the Carolina's on September 13 with powerful Category 2 winds, storm surge and devastating flooding. ReachGlobal's goal is to come alongside local EFCA churches as they share the love of Christ with their communities and congregations in this time of need.
- Relief for Venezuelan Refugees in Colombia
More than 2.3 million Venezuelans have left their country since 2014, making this the largest migration crisis in recent Latin American history. As migrants cross into Colombia's Santander region, many of them will pass one of the three Samaritan's Purse relief stations. As they serve, they are pointing people to the eternal hope found only in Jesus Christ. Through this response, many are gladly placing their faith in Him.
- West Michigan Food Bank
Each year, Feeding America West Michigan distributed more than 25 million pounds of food, the equivalent of more than 20 million meals. The West Michigan Food Bank (part of Feeding America) is a clearinghouse for food donated by farmers and food manufacturers, distributors and retailers and made available to 160 charitable agencies in our county. Our contribution is earmarked for the Benton Harbor Salvation Army, so they can go to the Food Bank and get that amount of food for free.
A special offering envelope will be available beginning November 11. Your offering may be placed in the offering plate on November 18 or 25, or given at our Thanksgiving Eve service. Please make checks payable to The Chapel. You can also donate online at My Place by designating your gift as "Thanksgiving Special Offering."
