As a resource-generous church, we are always looking to steward your generosity and our finances well. Help us by participating in a quick survey!

Meals and Gifts for Our Local Partners

Join us in serving our local partners by signing up for one of the opportunities below. Stop by the Christmas tree in the OUT alcove in the Atrium to grab a reminder!

  • Provide a Christmas meal for a family in Lexington. You’ll receive a shopping list totaling $50–55 for a family of 4–6.

Gingerbread Bash

Join us on Saturday, December 11 from 9–10:30am for a fun, hands-on way for the whole family to celebrate Christmas together. Make a gingerbread nativity, play games, hear the Christmas story, and discover that sometimes the greatest gift comes in the most ordinary box.

To make the morning even sweeter, you and your family can join us beforehand at 8am for a breakfast hosted by our Men’s Ministry!
