WAYS TO GIVE THIS DECEMBER | Serve & Give This Christmas Season!

December is a busy time of year, and it’s easy to miss all that’s happening. Here are the main ways that our church is giving and serving this Christmas season:

Lottie Moon March For Missions: Your generous gift enables IMB missionaries around the world to be sent out to make disciples and multiply churches among unreached peoples and places. Our church goal this year is $60,000. Drop off your offering envelope in the office this week or give online at westjacksonbc.org/resources/give-online or on our mobile app.

Random Acts of Christmas: Our second annual Random Acts of Christmas initiative is an opportunity for you to give a gift to someone this holiday season.To help you get started, we have put together some gift bags that include instructions and ideas. We have also included cards for you to leave with the individuals you are serving. The card lets them know they have been the recipient of a Ran- dom Act of Christmas and also includes an invitation to our Community Gathering on Christmas Eve. Pick up a bag just outside the Connection Center and join us as we make a di erence in our community this Christmas! Use #wjrandomactsofchristmas as you share your stories on social media!
