Christmas Offering Supports Partners for Change

The letter and envelopes for the Christmas offering are being mailed this week. Our Christmas offering supports Partner’s for Change is a poverty alleviation which is a program designed to measurably reduce poverty in sustainable ways. Thus, it is a hand up, not a hand out. Partners for Change is a community-based effort to empower people to chart their course out of poverty and toward self-sufficiency. Individuals or families learn to assess their situation and set goals for economic and self-improvement. After completing a 14-20-week life skills course, they set personal and community goals and receive support through a close-knit community that includes people who have achieved a degree of success and who also set goals for improving their lives and relationships. The group meets weekly to build friendship and do the hard work required to achieve goals for economic independence and more; a process which typically takes 18-24 months. You can return your offering in the envelopes being mailed to your or have your bank send a check and mark it Christmas offering or use Zelle (Destination)
