December Christmas Offering

This year's December Christmas Offering is called “A Thrill of Hope.” This offering, given throughout the month of December, is absolutely critical to Mountain's ministry. It’s crucial to make up ground at Mountain, but also because we are committed to bringing the thrill of Christ’s HOPE in these special ways:

  • A special gift will be made to THE EPICENTER. What is happening through the centers in Edgewood and Aberdeen is life changing, especially for kids. Talk about bringing HOPE! The EPICENTER does such powerful work and this gift will enable them to bring more HOPE right here at home.
  • A second part of the Thrill of Hope offering will go to HOPE BALTIMORE, a brand new church planted in the city in September. You may recall hearing Josh Symonette, Lead Pastor, speak at Mountain. Baltimore needs the HOPE of Christ! This church is bringing it! But they need help so we want to come through this December.
  • Third, help will be given to MISSIONS OF HOPE in Kenya, specifically for a brand new camp for kids called Angaza on the coast of Kenya. After just four sessions of camp, many students are making decisions for Christ! This gift will help the camp become sustainable for the long term, making a way for hundreds more kids from impoverished situations to find HOPE.
  • Lastly, a portion of the offering will be designated to those devastated by the recent tornadoes in Kentucky. Mountain will be working with a trusted partner, INTERNATIONAL DISASTER EMERGENCY SERVICE, to bring HOPE to those who have been impacted. 

This is an important time for Mountain. Please PLAN and PRAY so you can make a generous gift to Mountain in December! Not only will you help Mountain be strong and continue bringing hope, your gift will send the thrill of hope to kids and families nearby, in Baltimore, Kentucky, and in Kenya.

Thank you for taking this request to heart and planning a special year-end gift to God through Mountain. Hope is rising all around us at Mountain and now is a critical time to capitalize on what God is doing. Thank you, thank you for caring about the HOPE of the world, Jesus, and what he is doing through Mountain!

As always, gifts can be made online at, in the offering kiosks at a campus, or by mailing it to Mountain.

“I pray that God, the source of hope, will fill you completely with joy and peace because you trust in him. Then you will overflow with confident hope through the power of the Holy Spirit.”
