IMG_8536It will certainly be a Happy New Year for the recipients of the Christmas Catalog offering.  Thank you for your generosity as $37,520.18 was raised to impact our local community and our partner community in Buloba, Uganda.  The impact you have made will continue to bless our friends and communities as God’s grace poured through you this Christmas.

Here is just a sampling of the community impact:

  • The next time an anxious mother of a sick child in Buloba, Uganda, visits the Medical Clinic at Africa Renewal University, you can be sure the cabinets will be stocked.
  • Adoption and Foster Care families connected to BigHouse will be resourced.
  • People living in substandard housing will find repairs and warmth through Alabama Rural Ministry.
  • Expectant mothers will find support and hope at Women’s Hope Medical Clinic.
  • Backpacks of food and groceries from Community Market will feed our community thanks to the Food Bank of East Alabama.
  • The girls at Haddie’s Home will be encouraged and supported.
  • A space focused to pray for our community will be holy ground at Cedar Abbey.

The Advent weekly devotionals included in the Catalog were great reminders of why we give at Christmastime and throughout the year. Thank you to the Executive Team members who wrote such meaningful devotions and focused our hearts during the season.
Continue to check our website for further opportunities to support these agencies that we call partners. Thanks again!
