The cure for post-Christmas regrets
Sometimes the weeks after Christmas can bring regrets from overspending, overindulging, overeating, or over committing. But there’s something that none of us are regretting this year at Seneca Creek.
On Christmas Eve we take a special offering and give it away. Our Christmas Eve Project this year had two objectives:
- To finish construction of a medical clinic in Tanzania, providing medical care for 16,000 people (cost: $20,000)
- To help with the restoration work of homes in the NJ/NY area that were damaged during super-storm Sandy
When the gifts were added up, the generous people at Seneca Creek gave over $37,000 to these two projects! I can only say “Thank You!” to each and every one of you who helped us get there. What a demonstration of the church working together to make an impact, and to literally ignite HOPE for thousands of people in our world! Absolutely NO regrets, right?
If you’re interested in continuing this legacy of generosity, I encourage you to join in with our “One Percent Solution.” We talked about it last Sunday (check out the podcast here if you missed it), and over 70 families already committed to implementing the One Percent Solution in 2013! You can find more details about it at this blog site. Be part of the Solution!
Finally, we’ll kick off a new initiative this Sunday that’s sure to change your year, and your entire life. It’s called “The Big Read.” Be sure to check it out at 9:15 or 11:00 this Sunday. See you then.
