Special Christmas Offering 2020

While most of us love the Christmas season for the music, decorations, special family gatherings, and great food, it's also a great time to reflect on what is really important and if we are engaged in things that matter.  And perhaps no year has illustrated that more clearly than 2020.  When we learn to be content with what we have, it provides us an opportunity to extend compassion to others, blessing those experiencing a time of need and helping them in tangible ways which demonstrate God's care for them.  As you consider the gifts you will give this Christmas, we're inviting you to make a difference in the lives of people in our local and global families.  

From December 14-20, every gift given to Riverside will be given away and reinvested to care for people beyond our campus walls.  

With a goal of trusting God for a minimum of $150,000, we will sharing funds in theses ways:

All Fuel for Ministry gifts will be directed to local needs -

  • Bless more than 600 disadvantaged families in our region by partnering with 52 school and 7 local law enforcement connections surrounding our campuses
  • Help 3 C&MA sister churches in our district with resources and training to reach people in their area
  • Provide assistance to 7 local partners helping families with food and clothing

All Fuel for Missions gifts will be directed to global needs -

  • Supply an additional 200,000 meals for refugees in Burkina Faso, Africa
  • Help our new missions partner in Guadalajara, Mexico equip their 2nd campus and launch their 3rd multisite campus in 2021
  • Support 16 newly appointed C&MA International Workers with the resources they need to join our 800 International workers around the world

Are you ready to jump in and give to bless others?
