Everything we do and every dollar we invest at COMMUNITY is about helping people find their way back to God.
Each year, we designate our weekend offering to support our partner initiatives to accomplish the Jesus Mission. We call this weekend Celebration Generosity. This year, Celebration Generosity will take place on October 8, 2023.
EVERYONE GIVES ONE GIFT ONE TIME
In the past, we asked you to select a team for your offering, and we included any online recurring gifts. This year, we are asking for EVERYONE to give a ONE TIME above and beyond gift, in addition to your recurring gift. Your ONE GIFT will go towards supporting the three teams and your local campus partner.
CELEBRATION GENEROSITY TEAMS
Your ONE gift this year will go to supporting all three teams of Celebration Generosity.

GLOBAL TEAM – PHILIPPINES
COMMUNITY has partnered with Philippine Frontline Ministries by supporting their vision of a nationwide network of reproducing churches and ministry centers where education, compassionate ministries that help people in need, and the spiritual development of young people are high-priority concerns.
GLOBAL TEAM – COMPASSION
COMMUNITY has partnered with Compassion International by supporting their efforts of child sponsorship as a way to alleviate poverty, and by furthering their efforts of church planting in Haiti and South America.
REGIONAL TEAM – NEWTHING
NewThing is COMMUNITY’s church planting ministry that exists to plant churches around the world. The organizational framework allows churches to partner with other churches in order to shoulder the work of church planting as a team. Churches are able to share best practices, resources, and create missional movement by planting more churches together.
LOCAL TEAM – COMMUNITY CARES
While this time of social distancing can be overwhelming, let us not forget to do good and share with others (Heb 13:16). The Community Cares initiative has mobilized over a dozen teams in order to reach those in need in our local communities.
