2018 christmas offering
"THE WORLD WILL KNOW YOU ARE MY DISCIPLES BY HOW YOU LOVE ONE ANOTHER."
The Christmas Offering (running through to Jan 31st) is an annual tradition at TGC Chelsea — our yearly opportunity to be generous beyond regular giving, with a focus on meeting needs in our church community, our city, and across the world.
We have recently replanted, and became a new entity in April from TGC with a clear vision, vehicles and values below which have taken root, and need your help to support TGC Chelsea’s future for 2019.
living for the glory of god, and JOY of all people
By the power of the Holy Spirit, we join God in the renewal the person, the church, and the world through the transforming love of Jesus.
We have an unwavering desire to see the fame and deeds of God made known in our city, in our time.
Our Core Values: Radical love, Relational Authenticity & Dynamic Orthodoxy.
Join us in faith as we seek to resource this vision and mission.
Many thanks to our creative community: Director: Ariel Woodiwiss Script: Ariel Woodiwiss Editor: Tiago Viega Camera: Tiago Viega, Raymond Pendleton Voiceover: Mary Eden Music: Young Oceans, "Echo of Your Silence"
whAT your giving will do:
BELONGING: We want everyone who engages with our community to experience an openness that they can belong and to come as they are. To live as Jesus did, meeting with and welcoming all. This means investing in more spaces of belonging and radical love and hospitality such as: Monthly First Tuesday Feasts, Newcomers Dinners, Community wide spaces for fellowship.
GROWING: We can all come as we are to the church, and to the good news of Jesus’s loving reign, but we also believe we do not stay as we are. We want to create spaces where people can come and experience the word of God, and prayer in community that will leave us changed by the power of his love. This includes spaces and experiences that cultivate discipleship and spiritual formation, Community Retreats, Re-launching The Alpha Course.
SERVING: When we experience the self-giving love of Jesus, and we are powerfully changed, we realize it is our responsibility to live out his mission. We love others, and serve in and outside of the church including: Gifting our neighborhood of Chelsea, and city-wide Justice Organizations, Supporting NYU Navigators, Supporting our Benevolence Fund for our church community going through a particularly difficult time supporting counseling, rent, medical bills etc, and outreach/ missions trips through relational lines.
