The 2022 Christmas Offering will be received during the regular Sunday services on December 18 and 25, 2022.

2023 Ministry Initiatives

General Offering:

Our weekly offering need at Westbrook is $22,500. These offerings provide for our facility, staff, ministry obligations and regular monthly mission support Our weekly need over two Sundays is $45,000.

Mosaic Vision Church Planting:

Over the last many years we have been intentionally working toward the fulfillment of a long-term vision to plant Mosaic congregations in every country and among every people represented in our congregations. To date, there are 32 nations represented in our church. While we have been begun to make strides in the realization of this vision, we are strategizing future plants in Columbia, Puerto Rico and Ghana. For sure, we will go where the Lord opens doors of opportunity, but these countries are on our radar.

Crisis Relief/ Enduring Impact:

Earthquakes, Hurricanes, Tornadoes and Tsunamis can damage communities and displace people in a single moment. Our church wants to be at the ready to serve and provide financial relief when these occur. Your involvement from a financial perspective allows your church to immediately be a blessing to those in need.

Debt Reduction:

Any gifts above our stated goal will go directly to pay down our debts. Our church looks with anticipation to the day when we will be debt free and can be freed from the encumbrance of this financial challenge. As each member of our church family comes together we can accomplish this God-sized task and free up these monies to do significant and meaningful ministry in our community and our world.

2022 Update

Tech Upgrades to CR – for Global connection:

Over the last year and a half our congregations have enjoyed the synergy of sharing resources and ministry impact opportunities. In turn, blending our congregations Christmas offerings has provided so many opportunities at all of our locations. Early in 2022 Christmas funds were used to provide some much needed Tech upgrades for Crossroads and Gente Unida Crossroads. Reaching people with the message of Christ in our worship services is a fundamental part of what we do. As happens in our homes, upgrades and repairs are a never ending phase of our life. We were blessed to have available financial resources to meet these technology needs.

World Relief Refugee Assistance:

Working with the amazing organization- World Relief, Christmas funds were used to assist in the local settling of refugees to our area. Being the hands and feet of Jesus is our mandate and bring assistance to those most vulnerable is key.

Mexico Church Plant:

Fulfilling our Christ Commission to reach the world for Jesus, a portion of our Christmas offerings in 2022 were used to partner with a new church plant in La Paz, Mexico. Working with Pastor Ivan Pollo, we look forward to hearing more great stories of life change and transformation with this incredible burgeoning church called Communidad Cree.

Hurricane Ian Relief:

On Sept. 28, Hurricane Ian made landfall near Cayo Costa in southwestern Florida as a dangerous, high-end Category 4 storm after plowing a path of destruction through the Caribbean, bringing particularly heavy rainfall and dangerous surf to Jamaica, the Cayman Islands, and western Cuba. While the re-build efforts are no doubt years in process, your congregations were blessed to send much needed financial blessings to assist families in this region with groceries and other every day needs.

Haiti Crisis Relief:

For the last many months, heavily armed gangs have been blockading access to the country’s main fuel terminal and seaports, severely hampering access to drinking water, food and medicine. Food insecurity is on the rise, with a record 4.7 million – nearly half of the population – facing acute hunger. Working with our mission partners Sonlight Academy in Port de Paix, Haiti, ministry resources were sent to help bring aid and assistance to those who are in need.

Debt Principle Payment:

As 2022 comes to a close a special debt principle payment was sent to the Solomon Foundation to be placed on our mortgage principle. While we have a long way to go to erase our facility debt we know that every dollar toward the principle is a dollar well spent.
