Live, Give, & Go 2017

Every November our church family rallies around the "Live, Give, & Go" campaign to bless people in our community and around the world.
Every year we're blown away by our church's generosity, and once again you didn't disappoint.
THANK YOU. Here are the final numbers for this year's Live, Give, & Go campaign:

Operation Christmas Child

590 shoeboxes were collected from First MBers (up from 484 last year).
9,308 were processed at First MB (We are the regional collection center). This is just over a 3,000 box increase over last year!

Turkey Dinners

475 turkey dinners were given away to families in Oaklawn.
85 First MBers helped pass them out.

Giving Tree

230 ornaments were taken from the tree and fulfilled.
$3,035 was raised for Episcopal Migration Ministries.
$200 was raised for The Urban Ministry Institute.
$667 was raised for Downtown Breakfasts

Big Offering

Every year we give away 100% of one of our Sunday morning offerings. This year you gave the largest single morning offering ever of $109,477.26! WOW!
Those funds will be divided up between local refugee resettlement efforts (through World Impact and Episcopal Migration Ministries), Lighthouse Community Church, Paul & Sara Raugust, and Travis Jost.
