Love Offering 2020

Where Did Your Giving Go Last Year

Through your generosity, a total of $3.2M was raised for the 2020-2021 Love Offering. We would love to share with you how your gift has built up the Kingdom of God and spread the gospel of Jesus Christ in word and in action. Last year’s theme was Healing and Hope, and we celebrate how God is redeeming broken families, bringing the Gospel of peace to conflict regions, and healing fractures in society.
