The Increase Christmas campaign is your chance to respond to a consumer-driven culture in unexpected ways. It’s all about increasing the meaning of Christmas for you and others locally and globally by giving gifts that change lives. Chickens that provide eggs for families, hot meals that feed the hungry in our community, deworming pills that save lives, and water systems that transform communities are just the start of how we can increase Christmas together.
Increase Christmas came to Billings in 2013 and continues to grow in impact annually. This year, over $600 billion will be spent on Christmas in the United States on consumer goods that will be soon forgotten. As a church, we feel compelled to think differently about Christmas. As we celebrate the birth of Jesus this holiday, we’re forced to remember how God celebrated the first Christmas – He gave of Himself relationally with His time and presence.
It is not enough to say no to the way Christmas is celebrated by many; we say yes to a different way of celebrating. Giving to the poor, needy, lonely, and oppressed is a true increase of Christmas both for the ones receiving gifts and for us as we give.
You can give gifts this Christmas that change lives. Select any of the gifts below and add them to your cart. When you have finished, checkout using our secure online giving. You can then share on Facebook and encourage others to join you in the campaign.
All gifts are tax-deductible and given through Faith Chapel church. 100% of your giving goes to those in need. There are no administrative costs collected from the Increase Christmas campaign.
