Christmas Offering 2018
In Our City, For Our City
At RISEN, our vision states that the Gospel compels us to a calling bigger than ourselves, which is to be a church in our city for our city. We cannot do this alone but need to work alongside gospel partnerships who share the same heart and visi0n. At RISEN’s inception, we partnered with four initiatives/organizations: Young Life, Hope for San Diego, Guru Guru Community Bible Church in Uganda, and the San Diego Church Planting Movement (SDCPM). This Christmas we are taking up a special offering and giving it all away. On December 16th, we are asking the RISEN family to give above and beyond to bless these four organizations that do so much in loving our city.
We hope for the vulnerable.
The vision of Hope for San Diego is a renewed city where even the most vulnerable thrive. One of the needs they are meeting is the Refugee Crisis in our city. We hope to give up to $5,000 to provide care and comfort to refugee children in our city.
The next kid & the next school.
In this season, the San Diego North Young LIfe area is focusing on leadership recruitment/ training and revitalizing existing clubs (there are 3 high school clubs, 2 middle school clubs, and one Capernaum club). We hope to give $5,000 to help boost and encourage the work into the new year.
Planting Healthy Reproducing Churches
Luminous City is the next church being planted by our church planting network (SDCPM). They are launching in downtown San Diego in January 2019, led by Carlos & Gina Isaziga. We hope to give $5,000 to help launch this new church.
We have partnered with Pastor Stephen Hibu and Guru Guru COmmunity Bible Church in Gulu, Uganda to help their vision to provide education, health care, and ministry support. We hope to give $5,000 towards purchasing the land for their next church plant in 2019.
