Each November we collect a special offering which is used to support specific local and global missions. This year’s Thanksgiving Offering will support three initiatives that include a global and local emphasis as well as our ongoing efforts to meet needs in our community.
To contribute, checks can be dropped off or mailed to the church, just make sure to include a note that it is for the Thanksgiving Offering. You can also give online by clicking here. (Choose "Other" under Fund and "Thanksgiving Offering" under Sub Fund)
Radio Broadcasting, Russian Missions
For nearly 30 years, Pastor Sasha has been one of our global partners, serving the Russian community here in the States and overseas. Pastor Sasha has the heart of an evangelist which has led him to start a 24/7 radio program on 106.5fm that reaches over 20,000 Russian speaking people in our area. As you can imagine, due to the war in Ukraine, many more Russian speaking families are moving into our area and nearby cities. Pastor Sasha is looking to expand the reach of his radio program to take advantage of this unprecedented opportunity to reach Russian speaking families with the Gospel. He estimates the cost of expansion to be nearly $50,000. A portion of our Thanksgiving offering will be used to support this ministry. As a bonus, we will have Pastor Sasha with us on Sunday, November 26th as our guest speaker in the worship services, and you will not want to miss his incredible story of all that God is doing through his ministry.
Productive Lives Ministry Center, Kensington
Productive Lives is a non-profit organization that exists to train, coach, and mentor people in servant living and leadership. They are currently focused on serving the Kensington neighborhood of Philadelphia through a key partnership with Cornerstone Community Church. Their work includes rehabbing homes, food distribution, and hosting short-term teams to bless the surrounding community in the name of Jesus. Productive Lives is close to finishing a home in Kensington to serve as their ministry center and a place that can host groups overnight. The remaining cost to finish the project is approximately $80,000. A portion of our Thanksgiving offering will be used to support this project.
Davisville's Care Fund
We continue to have the opportunity to meet tangible needs in our community. When times get tough, people naturally look to the church, and we have been able to help numerous people by assisting with rent, utilities, car payments, food, and emergency shelter. A portion of this year’s Thanksgiving offering will be earmarked specifically for meeting needs in our community.
