Advent Conspiracy 2013

front of children's [AC] box!Merry Christmas! Yes, it’s early, but GVBC has been on a mission to turn Christmas upside-down. It’s called the Advent Conspiracy, and we want you to conspire with us this Christmas and turn Christ into something that is much less a consumerist holiday and much more an ushering of Christ’s presence into our world–a presence which loves, heals, brings justice and restores this world. So, spend less cash on presents and give more presence to them! Then, take the cash you would’ve spent and give it to charities that are really making a big difference for Christ. Here at GVBC, we are embarking on two projects for next year:

1. Give Hope: We’re beefing up our partnership with Rifu Oasis Church in Japan, a church that, nearly 3 years after the Japan Tsunami, continues to restore, minister, and bring the presence of Jesus to its devastated community.
2. Give Water: We’re working with our long-term missionaries in a village in Thailand to send a team of workers from GVBC to help build a clean water system for the village community. Clean water provides far more than just water, but opens the doors to better health, higher education, and stronger income for the community.

Pick up your Advent Conspiracy Boxes in the GVBC Narthex! Bring it back to service with you on Christmas Sunday, December 22 where we will give a united offering of praise and thanksgiving this Christmas season.
