Give the Gospel for Giving Tuesday!

Where will your treasure be Thanksgiving weekend? Jesus tells us, “For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also” (Matthew 6:21 ESV). So rather than focusing on scoring deals and buying things you don’t need, make an investment in the worthwhile, everlasting Gospel!

Your #GivingTuesday donations will support our Simply CHRISTmas campaign. Simply CHRISTmas allows us to donate books about the true Christmas story to at-risk children. Because Christmas isn’t about Santa, or being good, or giving things that will just get thrown away. It’s about the birth of God’s Son, Jesus Christ, who died on the cross and rose again to give you everlasting life.

When you donate to the Simply CHRISTmas campaign during November and December, you will provide a child with a book about the birth of his or her Savior. CGO works with Lutheran social-service agencies to distribute the books in time for Christmas. Over the years, more than 1,500 children have been served by your Simply CHRISTmas donations. Some of our partners have included:

  • Lutheran Child and Family Services of Illinois
  • Humanitri
  • Dakota Boys and Girls Ranch
  • Lutheran Mission Society of Maryland
  • Cardinals Care
  • Toys for Tots

When choosing your holiday gifts this year, you won’t go wrong if you give the Gospel. Because as a West African missionary told us, “There is absolutely no more precious gift that can be given than God’s Word!”
