Advent Thankoffering

"We are richly blessed. It makes us look forward to the special Advent Thankoffering when we freely and joyfully, without pressure or guilt, respond to what God has literally poured out on us."  From a Giving Story by Grace members Julie and Scott Krueger.

As we approach the end of the calendar year and celebrate Advent, the beginning of a new church year, take some time to reflect on how God has blessed you. And consider responding with a special Thankoffering. (If you make your Advent Thankoffering online please type "Thankoffering" in the box marked "Other.")
