Christmas Offering 2020
Christmas Offering 2019
Our Christmas Offering
Jesus has called us to love our neighbors as well as those much further away; the Great Commission states that we are to “make disciples of all nations” (Matthew 28:19).
Each year, our congregation contributes to a Christmas Offering, which is given as a gift to support one or more specific ministry goals, meet tangible needs and sharing the gospel.
Our 2020 Christmas Offering was gifted to the North Texas Food Bank; totaling $121,623, which supports 364,869 meals! We followed the gift with a team of Frisco First volunteers who served at the NTFB facility, packaging enough food for 8,800 meals in one afternoon! With all the challenges of the past year, this was a great reminder of how one church can truly help those in need and make an impact for Christ.
Our 2019 Christmas Offering fully funded the construction of two church buildings in Central and South America: Iglesia Evangelica Poder De Dios, in San Marcus de Sierra, Honduras, through North Texas Missions, and Christ’s Church in El Eden, Ecuador, through our partnership with Compassion international.
The ministries listed below receive financial support through our annual budget and/or congregational participation at various levels. In addition to those commitments, we regularly partner with North Texas Missions to support short-term trip objectives, missionaries and larger ministry projects throughout central and South America.
The Promise Home
Ministering to the Children of Honduras
Promise Home Orphanage ministers to abused, abandoned, and neglected children in Honduras. Their objectives are to provide physical and spiritual care, develop educated leaders and establish a self-sustaining ministry. Frisco First provides financial support, as well as manpower though short-term mission trips.
North Texas Missions
North Texas Missions is a dynamic network connecting churches and individuals with missionaries in order to provide financial support, organized short-term mission trips, and prayer for ministry worldwide.
Compassion International is dedicated to helping the poorest of the poor; the children in greatest need. We partner with them to maximize the effectiveness of our contribution.
