Women’s Christmas BrunchDecember 9, 2017
The women of Celebration are invited to this special Saturday morning brunch celebrating the work of The Chelsea House and Making Miracles Group Home and your gift to them through the FOCUS Initiative. Guest speaker, Cindy Winters Dutton. Seven years ago, Cindy’s husband of 21 years, Fred Winters, was the senior pastor at their church and was shot three times while standing in the pulpit at the First Baptist Church in Maryville, Illinois. Come hear her story of loss and ultimately forgiveness. Tickets will be available on the runway and at women.icelebration.org for $5 available today on the runway or at women.icelebration.org.
Lottie Moon Christmas OfferingThis year we are celebrating what God is doing through your gifts to the FOCUS Initiative. Celebration will donate $30,000 to the Southern Baptist Convention for International Missions. Thousands of refugees are fleeing their countries due to war and are now settling in East Africa. Our gift will minister to both believers and non-believers in a refugee camp.
The Star ProjectYour gifts to the FOCUS Initiative will allow us to provide hope and healing to girls escaping human trafficking through the Porch Light at Florida Baptist Children’s Home. Every victim of child sex trafficking has a distinct story, but a common thread is most have built walls that keep them from trusting people. The Porch Light provides expert coaches who work diligently to meet the physical, spiritual and emotional needs of these girls. Our gift of $15,000 will sponsor a girl through one year of this healing program.
Benevolence OfferingAn annual tradition at Celebration is our Christmas Eve special offering. The gifts received at these services help fund our Benevolence Ministry- keeping our food pantry stocked, and providing funds to help families in need of assistance with utility payments, rent, and more. By helping meet their basic needs we have great opportunities to show and share the love of Jesus with families in our community!
