Worship Fully | Spend Less | Give More | Love All
For the past nine Christmas seasons, E-Free has been part of the Advent Conspiracy. This year, we are supporting children in need in Nicaragua through Compassion International.
We SPEND LESS by resisting the cultural pressure to celebrate Advent through over-spending and over-consumption. Instead, we GIVE MORE! That is, we give relational, thoughtful, and meaningful gifts. We then take the money we saved and LOVE ALL by giving to those in true need. In all of this, we strive to WORSHIP FULLY by keeping our focus on Jesus and participating with Him in what He came to do, bringing hope to a desperate world.
