Here you'll find an ever-growing list of causes and ministries that the membership and Deacons of Community CRC have chosen to support.
We give because God has graciously given us so much--spiritually, emotionally, physically, materially--in fact, all that we need and then some. We also give to these causes because they are part of the Christian desire to promote "God's Kingdom" in all areas of human life and endeavour (i.e., that His will be done everywhere on earth as it is done everywhere in heaven, to borrow phrasing from the Lord's Prayer).
The Company That We Keep highlights the recipient of the second offering for the upcoming Sunday--an offering to which you may contribute during the worship service on Sunday mornings and evenings. The recipient of the second offering changes each week and the money collected may be given to local, regional, national or international causes.
The first offering, taken each Sunday morning, is for Community's administrative costs and ministry shares. Ministry shares are a way that Christian Reformed Churches, like Community, pool their resources to tackle projects and needs too big for an individual church to handle.
Almost each recipient below is an active link that will open another window and show you that organization's homepage so that you can easily inform yourself of the work done by them. For those recipients without an active link please consult the bulletin for that Sunday.
