From its beginning, Resurrection Life NYC will be a church that starts other churches. In fact, our vision is not to plant a single church, but to participate in a movement of church planting in New York City and around the world. We are also a church that is for our neighborhood and our city, and there is no organization like the local church to impact a community by being the hands and feet of Jesus.
Every December we will give generously toward this vision through our Christmas Offering, focusing both on church planting and reaching beyond our walls into our city and out to our world.
This year, the Christmas Offering will support two important initiatives:
- Resurrection Life NYC - A portion of the offering will fund the 1st year ministry of Resurrection Life NYC.
- International Justice Mission — This international organization protects the poor from violence in the developing world. In particular, IJM is leading the way fighting human slavery around the world.
- Benevolence Fund -- This newly established fund will help those both inside and outside the church with emergency funds while experiencing financial crisis.
