GIVE IT AWAY
As we begin to know Jesus and live out knowing Him, we should be motivated to share and invite others into that relationship. Give It Away exists to equip Life Groups, families and individuals, to regularly engage being on mission locally and take part of missions globally to share the love of Jesus and make disciples of all nations!
One aspect of Give It Away is making disciples. This means both introducing someone to Jesus for the first time and growing those that know Jesus closer to Him.
Another aspect is participating in mission and missions. This means both seeing our every day lives in view of Jesus’ mission, while taking part of planned missions opportunities.
Sanyuka has sent 15 of their children to Ohio in promotion of their choir and putting on Ugandan services at various churches. The children are using the Grace Church, Medina East Campus building throughout the week for their normal schooling and we have the awesome opportunity to provide meals and conversation to them!

Restore families. Keep kids safe.
With your generosity, 100% of the money given will go directly toward Safe Families efforts to keep kids safe.
The impact we can have on community via 5&Change is huge. It costs Safe Families 10$/week to host an unsafe child (average hosting time being 6weeks). For $60 we can help keep a family intact, decrease the likelihood of child abuse & provide family support and stabilization during a time of crisis.
Many of you and others have signed up to volunteer with SF in one of their various roles. We want to help relieve any obstacles limiting our people’s mobilization including financial as you feed extra mouths during those few hosting weeks.
With your $5 and or some change, we can mobilize our own people and others in the Safe Family network to make a change in young lives and families.
Everyone can pray.
Join us in praying for the message and story of Jesus to be shared in our community and world. Pray for disciples to be made, ministries and organizations to love and serve others, and for those that are sent to be encouraged and fruitful!
Many can give.
Along with prayer, generosity is a major way to tangibly give away the story and message of Jesus to others. Imagine what we can do if we leverage our resources together for others to make an impact in our community and world!
As we pray and give we are actively going to those in need of the message and story of Jesus. Whether we are going across our street, our country or our world, we are called to go!
