Generosity around the Christmas holiday is not merely a good idea or a time-honored tradition, it is a way to embody the very heart of the gospel. As such, we want to put before you, the people of Sound City, two specific avenues for you to practice generosity.
John, a member of Sound City, recently came forward and offered some insights with me on how we as a church can best love and serve people in times of disaster. The conversation was very helpful for me, so I thought it was a good opportunity to share it with our larger church community. Here’s the interview!
If you've been watching the devastation in Texas but haven't known how to help or get involved, you're likely not alone. With so many different relief organizations, non-profits, and government organizations involved, it can be hard to know where to begin. In the video below, Pastor Aaron outlines one specific way that we as a church family can help.
In June of 2015, Sound City celebrated our first group of Covenant Members with a banquet dinner. We ate good food, laughed together, and celebrated the amazing grace that God had shown to us. That dinner launched us into a season of planning for the upcoming fiscal year (July 2015-June 2016). We didn’t know exactly what God was going to do, but what we did know is that we could trust his faithfulness to his people.
Sound City Bible Church is partnering this Christmas season with Vision House to provide gift cards for families in need as part of their “Home for the Holidays” initiative. For 25 years, the Vision House has worked hard to provide safe and confidential transitional housing and services for homeless children and their families.
Generosity is a great way to share the love of Jesus with our neighbors in the Shoreline area. As we begin to think about students heading back to school (already?!), we are excited to partner with The Back To School Consortium, an organization which provides supplies to students in the Shoreline School District to outfit them before the school year begins.
