Throughout the year our Mission Council is very active in supporting mission and outreach locally, nationally, and globally. What you may not realize is that the funds that support this excellent work are primarily collected through our special Easter and Christmas Eve offerings.
Last year, St. Thomas Church supported:
17 Local Partner Organizations: We supported local partner organizations such as Prosperity House, CRU at George Mason University, the St. Thomas Food Pantry and Clothing Closet, Loch Lomond ES, Prince William Hospital, Manassas Health & Rehab, PWC First Responders, & The Bright Center just to name a few! Pictured above you'll see some of the Angel Shop gifts for children of our Local Relief clients and other deserving walk-ins this Christmas.
8 National Missionaries and Programs: These included health kits, clothing for Afghan refugees, START team support for rebuilding homes in NC, kits for children of incarcerated parents when summer camp was cancelled due to COVID, and missonaries in Richmond, Georgia, and Alaska.
7 International Mission Programs and Partners: We support missionaries in Sierra Leone, Guatemala, and El Salvador specifically, as well as support for Operation Christmas Child and clothing to children throughout Africa.
If you'd like to support our Miracle Christmas Offering, please designate "Christmas Eve" on your check or envelope and then bring it with you to worship on Friday, December 24. Or, you may use our text-to-give or online options as well. You'll find the online giving portal by clicking the "Christmas Miracle Offering" button below. Please choose the Christmas Miracle Offering option on our giving portal.
Merry Christmas and thank you for blessing so many through your generosity!
