Series & Important Dates

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through him, and without him was not any thing made that was made. In him was life, and the life was the light of men. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.
-John 1:1-5

Affordable Christmas (12/8)

Affordable Christmas is an empowering shopping experience that was held on 12/8/18 for low-income families in our city that allowed them an opportunity to provide Christmas presents for their children at a very low cost, while giving back to a charitable cause. New toys were donated and then sold for 1/10th of the retail value. Free childcare (fun outdoor activities together), pictures with Santa Claus, games, and crafts were provided while parents shopped for their children; and families were provided a meal to eat together with our volunteers.

The proceeds raised from Affordable Christmas (totaling $4,000!) will benefit the work of Foster Care Initiatives with birth families whose children are at-risk or in the foster care system. Thank you to everyone who joined us in serving our city, loving families in need, and making their Christmas much brighter, or who helped out along the way!

Advent Offering (12/16)

CLOSE (Redemption Foster Care & Adoption): Our goals are to seek ongoing opportunities to mobilize and support families who are interested in Foster Care & Adoption. We firmly believe that children need families and families need support.

NEAR (Local Outreach): We have seen and heard of ways God is moving to reconcile areas of brokenness in Tempe through relationships with our city, school district, local non-profits, and partnerships with faith communities. We are thankful to be able to seek the shalom of Tempe through local financial support initiatives for vulnerable populations in Tempe.

FAR (Global Partnerships): As in years past, a portion of our offering will go to several overseas partnerships in China and Guatemala.


Each week, we’ll be posting podcasts and blogs that¬†highlight different spiritual rhythms for connecting with God.
