The Christmas season reminds us to celebrate the coming of our Savior, Jesus Christ who changed the world—and yes, changed our lives! A part of our celebration is our annual Christmas offering, given in gratitude for our Savior, and participating in his mission to change the world through God’s grace and forgiveness.
This year’s Christmas Offering can change lives in three important ways:
- 20% will go to helping Hope youth attend International Youth Convention next summer. Many youths have a life-transforming spiritual experience at the convention in the company of thousands of Christian teens.
- 15% will be used to join the fight against human trafficking in the Break the Silence campaign conducted by congregations across the Church of God.
- 65% will support the ongoing needs of Hope Church and further propel our ministry into 2020.

INTERNATIONAL YOUTH CONVENTION
The International Youth Convention of the Church of God, better known as IYC, seeks to create opportunities for life change. This purpose drives everything that happens at the convention. Because of IYC, thousands of young men and women have made life-changing decisions. Hundreds have decided to go into full-time vocational ministry or missions, and hundreds more have indicated they are serious about living as Christ-centered leaders. IYC also helps to nurture a giving heart and a lifetime focus on others.
IYC 2020 will be held in Orlando, Florida, featuring nationally recognized speakers and worship leaders. Hope Community Church wants to send a group of its high school students and their youth leaders to the event. You can help make a lasting change in these young peoples’ lives with your gift by helping them attend this week of worship, prayer, scripture, and relationship-building.
BREAK THE SILENCE CAMPAIGN
This Christmas, will you join us in breaking the silence? Everyone can join the freedom fight against sexual exploitation, fighting for the freedom of those most vulnerable. Sexual exploitation has truly gripped our heart and moved us to action. Your donation will help to bolster the work of ministry partners on the front line in the fight against human trafficking around the world.
Join us for a special offering to to address the stalking darkness that threatens women and children around the world.
HOPE COMMUNITY CHURCH
We are a Christ-centered people desiring to meet the physical and spiritual needs of the people in our community. We want to love others into experiencing a saving relationship with Jesus and to help them grow into spiritual maturity. Together, we work to identify what hell has stolen in our community and how we, as Hope Community Church, can give life by reclaiming it in Jesus' name.
Your gift will help support the ongoing needs of Hope and further propel our ministry into 2020.
