The Big Give is a Holiday Tradition at Family Life Church. Last year Big Give offerings totaled over $23,000.00! This was raised for the Community Service fund. $10,000.00 was given at Christmas to Mill Families and the balance will be spent in community service. We served our community in a HUGE way. In the past five years, the generous people at Family Life Church have given $128,000.00 in Big Give offerings!!
At FLC we “give to give,” not give to get! In past years we have given gifts to the local NFD Toy & Joy, helped single moms, given to fund the local women’s shelter for an entire year through Love INC, build a Dream Center in India, bought a Bus for A Family Place daycare for at-risk preschoolers. We have given to our community and helped families who lost their jobs last Christmas with the Mill shutting down.
We Give Big. Like we always say the biggest offerings we take at this Church are always for someone else.
Last year's goal was Big! $25,000.00 – We broke it down into three blessings.
A World Blessing
Convoy of Hope: $11,000.00
In the Fall of 2015, Hurricane Matthew devastated Haiti. One million people were affected and there were over one thousand deaths. Convoy of Hope is on the scene giving much needed supplies. We can help.
The Country of Cuba has tried to shut down the church. BUT… a Cuban pastor, Brother Emilio, has helped establish over 800 house churches and they are thriving. We can buy a house and create another church for $6,000.00
