for Adult Small Groups
Giving Christmas for Adult Small Groups is a way for groups to serve and bless a Hunter Street ministry and/or mission partner. We ask that members first give to the Lottie Moon Christmas offering individually, which is a charitable contribution gift, then give towards the Small Group gift, which are not eligible to be received as a charitable contribution donation.
SEND HUNTER STREET
This Small Group gift will help support the sending of Hunter Street members to go and experience a mission trip during our MissionTwenty20 emphasis. This gift is not allowed to be designated to a person but will go towards an overall scholarship fund that MissionTwenty20 participants can apply towards their trip cost. This investment will give many Hunter Street members better ability to go and share the message of good news on mission during MissionTwenty20.
ALABAMA BAPTIST CHILDREN’S HOMES CAMP
OF CHAMPIONS FOR FOSTER KIDS
A Small Group gift of $180 will make it possible for one child to attend the Alabama Baptist Children’s Home Camp of Champions for foster children and foster families. This camp is provided free of cost for Alabama Baptist foster families and foster children. This is the only camp experience that many foster children ever get to attend. Children get to experience typical camp activities along with Biblical instruction. This past year Camp of Champions had 833 camp attendees, 4 sports clinics for kids, 6 training sessions for parents, and 18 professions of faith in Christ.
Small groups can purchase and pack a “Clarkston Tub” that our ministry partners will use to help meet the needs to the international refugees that are relocating to the Clarkston, Georgia refugee resettlement area. A Small Group that wants to give a tub will need to purchase a 64 Qt. Latching Storage Box pack with the following items:
Diapers (any size)
Children’s clothing and underwear
Each tub is estimated to cost $100. The items from the tubs will help our partners and future Hunter Street mission teams build relationships with the refugees in order to share the gospel message.
FOOD 4 KIDS CHRISTMAS MEALS
Small Groups will be provided a shopping list to help provide essential groceries for local children and families in need who will be out of school for two weeks. Groceries will be purchased by the small group and delivered to the family. It is estimated that this gift will be $200 to $250 per family.
The Small Group gift will support the translation efforts of the Old Testament into the Mandinka language through Proclaimer Units by Faith Comes by Hearing. A total collection goal of $10,000 will provide 200 units that can be used in West Africa to speak the Bible in multiple heart languages.
