Each year during the month of December, The Meeting House turns our attention towards generosity in a focused and challenging way. In a month where it is far too easy to focus on ourselves, or our families, or our experiences- we want to invite The Meeting House family to be focused on partnering with local and global organizations that are making an impact through providing tangible solutions around the need for housing. The Missions Team have selected three organizations to be the recipients of this years Christmas Give.
The goal this year is to raise $100,000 to generously, compassionately, sacrificially and abundantly show the love of God to others.
Brethren in Christ World Missions
The cross cultural missions sending agency of the Brethren in Christ (BIC) church. BICWM is positioned well to provide support for people around the world who are displaced and are in need of suitable housing. 50% of what is donated to The Christmas Give will go directly to Brethren in Christ World Missions in the continued work of furthering the good news of Jesus.
