Every year Eastside Church participates in a justice offering. The purpose of the Christmas Justice Offering is to alleviate suffering while doing good in our world. Traditionally we have allotted roughly half of that money to a domestic need and the other half to international work.
This year, our domestic offering will be divided among our domestic Ministry Partners: East Atlanta Kids Club, Branan Towers, Action Ministries, New American Pathways and United Methodist Children’s Home. You can learn more about these partnerships here.
On the international front, starting back in 2012, Eastside began developing a partnership with a small village named Tickolette on the island of La Gonave in Haiti. Previous Christmas offerings have helped fund teachers’ salaries, start a goat farming program and ensure food for students throughout the year. You can learn more about that partnership here.

In this season of waiting, let us work toward an earth that points toward the ways of God.
