how can i help?
Goal: $10,000 * Raised: Over $10,000
For several years our church has taken part in a movement called Advent Conspiracy—Advent is the time of the year where we can actually pull back from the hustle and bustle of the holiday and focus on both Christ first coming as a babe in a manger and on the fact that Christ is coming again as our ruling King.
Unfortunately Christmas has become a time of increased commercialism and consumerism. If we are not careful will totally miss the meaning of Christ birth. If we are not intentional we can actually find ourselves worshiping less and spending more—which in turn results in us actually giving less and struggling more. Advent Conspiracy is an effort to change that.
In 2016 CFCC partnered with Missions of Hope International (MOHI) in a very strategic way—by raising over $10,000 to build a kitchen for a new school center that is being launched in Morokani.
MOHI has already recruited 74 children for the school. There are hundreds more school-aged children in Morokani who could receive an education. You and I have a critical role to play—part of MOHI’s approach at the schools or centers is to provide the children with two meals a day—they have found that children learn much better when they are not hungry. If we will link arms as a church during the advent season—we have the opportunity to worship more and spend less. Let us pray!
Throughout this time of year, we encourage you to continue giving your regular tithes that fund our general ministry expenses.
And don't forget to participate in our daily Advent readings for children and adults available here!
