There are many opportunities for us to be materialistic this Christmas, but I'd like to give you a chance to redirect some your Christmas gift funds to a very worthy cause. This year at Solid Rock, we want to send a Christmas offering to Teen Challenge of the Permian Basin. They are trying to raise $30,000 to build a new women's dorm. I believe in what Teen Challenge is doing, so I'd like to do our share in helping them to raise these funds.
If you haven't already given your special Christmas offering, you may give it this Sunday or the Sunday after that. We'd like to send it in the week of December 22.
