Moments Chapter 2 | November 14–15, 2020
More than 85 years ago, in the middle of the Great Depression, one of the most impactful Bellevue traditions began—our annual Love Offering. The heart of our annual Love Offering has always been for God to provide for our church through the people of our church, and this year is no different. Even in the midst of various economic challenges, we believe God will prompt each of us to give according to His plan just as He did in 1934 when the first Love Offering was collected.
Our 2020 Love Offering coordinates with the 2019 Love Offering: Moments. Over the last year, we have reflected on countless life-changing Moments that have happened in our Worship Center while also witnessing new Moments take place. Now more than ever before, the value of and appreciation for our Worship Center has been revealed to us. After 11 weeks of not being able to meet in-person as the Body of Christ, we have come to cherish the time we spend together in our Worship Center even more.
While we have been limited in the ways we can meet in Life Group rooms or in many of the other areas in our church, we are gathering and Worshiping as one Body in our Worship Center. This year, as we reflect on our favorite Worship Center Moments, let us not take them for granted, and let us obediently give to the Moments to come.
I pray that each of us looks toward the Lord and obeys however He leads us to participate in this year’s Love Offering.
Through this year’s Love Offering, we have an opportunity to reflect on the countless life-changing moments that have happened in our Worship Center. Every Sunday we all disperse to different areas to attend Life Groups and Serve In, but we always come back together to Worship as one body— the Body of Christ. In the Worship Center, we celebrate baptism, see lost people get saved, dedicate newborn babies, witness burdens being lifted, and much more. This year, as we reflect on our favorite Worship Center moments, let’s also give to the moments to come.

Ways to give…
Some members of the church family may wish to give tangible items. If possible, it is better for you to sell such items and give the proceeds to the church.
Many of you will want to make a one-time offering by cash or check on Love Offering Sunday in November. You may also give online by clicking the button below.
If you wish to give a gift in the form of stock certificates, regulations require certain documentation. Your bank or broker can assist you in this process. Call (901) 347-5470 if you have more questions.
