Local – Bringing Good News
Celebration of Biblical Festivals:
- Pesach – Passover signifies the purchase of redemption. Jesus has become our Passover sacrifice. By observing Passover, we acknowledge the command of God when He said: “Now this day will be a memorial to you, and you shall celebrate it as a feast to the Lord; throughout your generations you are to celebrate it as a permanent ordinance.” (Exodus 12:14) We host an annual community Seder where members from a wide variety of congregations may experience a passover celebration to learn its Scriptural significance and discover its implications for believers in Messiah Jesus.
- Shavuot – Shavuot signifies that God is taking a people for Himself from among the nations. This people has been chosen and sanctified to bring forth God’s purpose in the midst of the nations. The original covenant with Israel at Mt. Sinai was made at this time. The church was initiated on the anniversary of this event. As a congregation, we celebrate this event and welcome all to experience its rich Biblical significance with us.
- Sukkot – Many scholars believe that Jesus was born during the festival of Sukkot, one in which God instructs His people to live in temporary shelters in remembrance of His deliverance and miracles in the wilderness. In observance of this festival, we build a community sukkah (temporary shelter) and enjoy musical presentations and special outdoor activities. For more information on Sukkot, click here.
Feeding the Hungry
- Food Pantry and Distribution of Thanksgiving Baskets – We maintain a small supply of dry food items from which we may give to those in need. We also prepare Thanksgiving baskets for those who would otherwise be unable to provide a holiday meal for their family.
National & International – Confirming the Promises of God
Ha Tznirim Park – Since 2006 we have worked with the Israeli community of Kedumim, “The Vanuard of Jewish Resettlement in Biblical Samaria,” to fund and build Ha Tznirim nature park, sending work crews annually to assist in its construction. The park is used by community residents throughout the Shomron (Samaria). For more information see The Kedumim Project: “Confirming the Promises”.
Project Shofar – We support this effort centered in Kiryat Arba, Israel, which encourages Jewish people of the diaspora to make aliyah.
CFOIC – We pray for and support Christian Friends of Israeli Communities (CFOIC), an Israeli based venture that provides support and encouragement to those living in Biblical Judea and Samaria.
CUFI – We participate with Christians United For Israel (CUFI), a national Zionist political action group.
