LOVE OFFERING SUNDAY

Eighty-five years ago, one of the most impactful Bellevue traditions was started. In 1934, God provided for our church through the people of our church. Despite the financial need falling in the middle of the Great Depression, Bellevue members rose to the occasion and surpassed the goal of the first Love Offering. That year, and every year since, we have been reminded how God is faithful to provide. 

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. 

God is doing a mighty work in and through our church. As we seek Him, we will continue to be a catalyst for spiritual awakening in Memphis and beyond. I encourage you to faithfully follow where God is leading and pray about how God is inviting you to participate in this year’s Love Offering.
