Where we're giving: Global Initiatives: Zoe International → Rescuing kids out of human trafficking and into a Christ-centered home to cultivate physical, emotional, spiritual well being and to provide them with skills for adult life. Learn more: gozoe.org Touch Nepal → Remote Area Pastors Training to cultivate high quality biblical teaching in remote areas of Nepal by indigenous pastors and leaders. Learn more: touchnepal.org Local Initiative: The City Center → The City Center and its staff, case managers, therapists, and mentors are dedicated to helping homeless, often single parent families transition from homelessness to independence in Ventura. Learn more: thecitycenter.org Reproducing Church Steadfast Church → Garrison and Meredith Wash will be planting Steadfast Church in South Pasadena in Fall of 2021. Learn more: steadfastchurch.org Genesis Church Planting Cohort → We have 13 potential planters (including the Washes) going through a global planting cohort. We would love to set aside money to invest in the plants that happen in the next year (Sri Lanka, Netherlands, California, India, and more!)

The Discipline of Release

Matthew 6v19-33; Matthew 14v13-21; Hosea 6v6 • October 18, 2020 • Bert Alcorn

God knew that his people would become attached to things and in turn, worship them instead of him. We give regularly so that we are continually put in a position of humility, service, and trust; so that he can free us from the grasp of materialism.
