Your giving is changing our community!
It's impossible to out-give God, but you'll never regret trying!
God gives us good things we don’t deserve and could never earn, like grace and forgiveness. He gave the ultimate gift, His son, for our sins.
One of our core values is to be irrationally generous, and God created you with a generous spirit. We want to help you embrace it by giving beyond your tithe!
With your giving, Passion is financially benefitting these 9 local organizations:
- New Life Pregnancy Center
New Life provides education, free services, and practical support with a holistic and compassionate approach. They are 100% funded through the generosity of individuals, businesses, and organizations in our community. They offer pregnancy testing, limited obstetrical ultrasounds, options consultations, parenting classes, support for me, sexual health information, abortion recovery and information as well as the Maternity House.
How you can help: Donate used clothing items etc. to their thrift shop. The thrift shop provides employment to their clients, and provides a place that families can purchase necessities with their earned “care cash” from New Life.
