Thanksgiving at White Oak is about all that God is doing! This year we are thankful for his work around the world, in our country and in our community. We want to lift up the name of Jesus everywhere we have commitments. As a result, we are asking God for a special offering to help us do just that! Our generosity reflects our trust in God!

This year’s Thanksgiving offering has two parts. The total offering we are praying for is $55,000 and as we pray for the offering results, we are praying more emphatically for the impact this money will have on the kingdom. You may give your offering throughout November and December.  

First, our commitment to our property for the Ross Township Campus: In 2016, we exercised our option to purchase 18 acres along US 27, just north of Ross. This purchase was structured to be made in three payments. Adding to ENGAGE funds collected, we plan to use up to $50,000 from this offering to make our second of three $105,000 payments in January 2018! 

Our second commitment is to encourage God’s work in India. We have the opportunity to purchase land for our Bagepalli campus (we now have 12 campuses in India!). Mathew Mathai continues to lead this life-giving, transformational ministry centered in Chikkaballapur, Karnataka, India! We have seen thousands of people be drawn to Jesus. The stories of people who had no hope now having HOPE IN JESUS are amazing! Our gift of $5,000 will help us complete the purchase!

We hope you will be praying about our special commitment this year and consider a generous gift, over and above your regular offering by December 31! We know it is a big “ask” but we serve a big God, with a big message! We are thankful for what He has done, is doing, and will do! Please mark your offering “Thanksgiving”!
