Christmas Project Giving Total: $9,927 / $180,000

Challenge: Raise $180,000 by January 15, 2018!

This year’s Christmas Project is focused on raising funds for ministries at River Oaks, in our local community and in various places around the world that impact the “lost” and the “least of these.”

Please prayerfully read over the following information and be as generous as you possibly can in helping us reach, and even exceed, our goal!

Give online to the 2017 Christmas Project:


Compassion Projects: $100,000

“Showing compassion to the poor through the love of Christ.”

These funds will be dispersed among the local compassion agencies; our River Oaks service groups; and International Compassion ministries in Haiti, Cuba and Voice of the Martyrs, along with the four missionaries we support.

One of the local compassion projects we are excited about is raising funds for the purchase of a much-needed box truck for Faith Mission. The truck will be used for daily food pick-up and delivery.

The second local compassion project includes raising funds to help with our launch of the River District Campus in downtown Elkhart in January of 2019. These funds will help with unknown, yet anticipated, start-up costs and ministry initiatives in the months leading up to the launch.

Evangelism Projects: $80,000

“Going to the lost with the message of Christ.”

This year’s project includes significant funding to help us open our doors a little wider to the unchurched in our area with the hope that many would find an eternal relationship with God! To that end, we have two desires:

First, we would like to fund scholarships and offset costs to allow children to attend SpringHill Day Camp at River Oaks this summer. This will be our 9th year hosting SpringHill Day Camps!

Secondly, as we continue to develop the ROCC Park, these funds will be used toward outreach events throughout the year, park improvements, and equipment. Given the success of past Park events, we would like to fund another exciting outreach event for the community next year!

Through this effort, we believe we are better positioned to attract people to Jesus who are seeking Him, but not yet ready to step into a church building.

Thank you for your participation in this year’s Christmas Project! May you be blessed as much as you are a blessing to others who need assistance, not only in matters of this life, but in living with God in the next!

All gifts received over the goal will go towards the start-up costs for the River District Campus.

Gifts will be accepted through January 15, 2018.
