Every year, 100% of the Christmas Eve Offering is donated to local and international mission partners who are serving the poor, hungry, homeless, oppressed, and afflicted. The needs of these communities are overwhelming. The Mission & Service ministry team has chosen two organizations to split the 2021 Christmas Eve offering:
Pie Ranch is an educational, nonprofit organization located in the Pescadero area that helps small scale farmers, students, and food insecure community members. Their mission is to cultivate a healthy and just food system from seed to table through food education, farmer pathways, and regional partnerships.
Jewish Family Services of Silicon Valley is an organization working for the local resettlement of Afghan refugee families. JFS SV assists people entering the U.S. with Special Immigrant Visas, given to those who helped the Americans during the war.
These two groups inspire us. Through our Christmas Eve offering, we can make a difference in the lives of many. Thank you for being a congregation that cares.
Online donations can be made via Tithely or PayPal (be sure to designate your payment to "Christmas Eve.")
