Each Christmas, our church participates in a movement called Advent Conspiracy; that helps us experience Christmas in a more meaningful way.  You can also learn more about this at the link below: www.adventconspiracy.org/

For our Giving Target this Christmas, our church will be raising funds to bless the ministry of Wellspring Living, which is based out of Atlanta.  This organization is doing the important work of providing rescue and care to girls and women who have been victims of sex trafficking in the U.S.  That ministry has produced a book called “The White Umbrella”, which explores the stories of survivors and workers that deal with this messy and dark issue in our world.  You can learn more about this book, this Christian organization, and “The White Umbrella Campaign” itself (as well as see the promotional video we watched today) at the links below:

Please join us this Christmas Season as we strive to worship Jesus with our voices, hearts, minds, and our actions!

Blessings,

Pastor Josh
