Every year during this season, the Quarry puts a special focus on generosity. We take a unique offering called “Compassion at Christmas” for the purpose of helping our ministry partners around the world or specific needs right here in Monticello.
This year we will support Kristin Wolford-Santana, one of own our who is a missionary in the Dominican Republic. She and her husband lead a Christian ministry that disciples young adults to teach children in impoverished neighborhoods. It’s an extra special year to help because they are raising funds to build a clean water station that will benefit the ministry and the community!
Why do we give? Because God has blessed us to be a blessing. This ministry continues to do tremendous work in their community but they need our help to press on. On Sunday, December 16th, we will be collecting our Compassion at Christmas Offering during both services. Our goal is to raise $10,000. Let’s leverage the “power of us” and catalyze the ministry of our brothers and sisters right next door and around the world. Together, we can meet the very real need through a compassionate gift this Christmas.
I’m not talking about slipping $20 in a basket. I’m asking for a one-time, sacrificial gift above and beyond your regular giving to the Quarry. This is going to hurt a little but it is right and good. Please, prayerfully consider what you can generously give. I look forward to how God will continue to use us to build his Kingdom, not only in Monticello but also around the world.
In the love of Jesus,
Pastor Michael Grose
“Command those who are rich in this present world … to be generous and willing to share. In this way they will lay up treasure for themselves as a firm foundation for the coming age, so that they may take hold of the life that is truly life.”
~ 1 Timothy 6:17-19
