SPECIAL CHRISTMAS OFFERING
God demonstrates His great generosity to us through Jesus’s birth, death and resurrection. We follow His example by giving sacrificially to introduce people to Jesus – The Light of the World. The ongoing work NCC is doing will continue to meet physical and emotional needs, but more importantly, point people to Jesus, the Light of the World.
This year’s special Shine the Light Christmas offering will support three things, one from each campus:
A ministry that provides long-term, hope-filled solutions for survivors of sex trafficking and exploitation both in Indonesia and Portland, Oregon.
Road 2 Hope Maternity Home
A ministry that provides housing, help, and hope to pregnant mothers in crisis.
Provides culturally aware outreach, education, and services for victims of domestic and sexual violence through leadership, hope and respect for thriving families.
We will also be dedicating a portion of this offering to support 2 church wide initiatives, listed below:
Stand Up Girl
A ministry dedicated to providing pregnant adolescent and young women with alternatives to abortion.
A Refrigerated Truck
This truck will help take our food distribution ministry even further into the community.
WAYS TO GIVE
Our online giving portal, church center, lets you easily set up a recurring gift via your debit card, credit card, or checking account.
We encourage you to set up an automated giving schedule to have your “first fruits” go to the Lord every time.
TEXT TO GIVE
For a quick and easy way to give, you can text the amount for your gift to the following number:
Search for Northwest Christian Church or select the option from the “nearby church” suggested section.
A non-cash gift of appreciated stock or a tax free distribution from your IRA are both examples of giving that maximize your gift and minimize your taxes. You may also have real estate, an unused vehicle, or other assets you are stewarding that may be a great option to consider gifting to and through the ministry of our church. If you have any questions in this regard, please call the church office.
