Participate in a Gift to the Hurting Around the World
Life in 2021 has been hard all around the world. In response, Christ Community’s year-end gift "Homes for the Holiday" will significantly impact three groups of people in extraordinary need.
This year, there are three ways to participate:
1) Give to the Homes for the Holiday fund to aid Afghanistan refugees and pastors for Christ Community's international partners.
2) Commit to sponsoring a child in Sierra Leone or Bangladesh.
3) Do both!
Learn more about the year-end gift and give now.
