Beyond Our Walls

Rock City Christmas Give 2015

Posted on: November 13, 2015

It’s that time of the year again and we are gearing up for one incredible Christmas Season.  The annual Christmas Give is going to be big this year, which means more opportunity to jump in and serve!

Partner with us to extend our reach beyond our walls and to provide:

-       1,500 pairs of shoes for children in need
-       A Children’s Development Center in La Libertad, El Salvador
-       A new church for the people of Nepal
-       $100,000 to the Columbus Dream Center
-       Assistance to local families in need. 

You can partner with us in two ways:

First, you can contribute a year-end gift to the Christmas Give. You can click here to give online or try our Smart Giving option. Simply text the amount you would like to give along with ROCKCITY GIVE to 43777 (example: $50 ROCKCITY GIVE).

Second, we are looking for volunteers for our Christmas Shoe Give events in December. We’re blessing 4 inner-city elementary schools as well as the children at the Homeless Families Foundation.  There is no better way to celebrate the true meaning of Christmas than to be the hands and feet of Jesus in our own community. You can sign up to volunteer here.

Merry Christmas and a huge thank you for your generosity and willingness to serve.

A generous person will prosper; whoever refreshes others will be refreshed.
Proverbs 11:25
