As we’re celebrating God’s response to our need and spiritual poverty this Easter, we also remember those He calls us to love, “the least of these brothers and sisters of mine.”
That’s why we receive our Easter Sacrificial Offering for Hope for New York (HFNY), our mercy and justice partner. We support HFNY in many different ways, but for over 20 years this has been one of the most significant. Financially, the majority of Redeemer’s support for HFNY comes from your gifts to the Easter Sacrificial Offering.
Because HFNY is a separate 501(c)(3) charitable organization, they greatly depend on your individual gifts to continue their work. In fact, less than eight percent of HFNY’s operating budget comes from churches.
You can give during your Easter Sunday service or by sending checks (payable to “Hope for New York”) to Hope for New York, 1166 Avenue of the Americas, Suite 1610, New York, NY 10036. Visit hfny.org/donate/ to donate online. One hundred percent of your gifts will help support various NYC populations, including at-risk youth, low-income families, immigrants, the homeless, and the elderly.
In addition, you can incorporate generosity into your daily life, throughout the year, with The Hope Exchange, HFNY’s committed monthly giving program. You can learn more at hfny.org/hopeexchange.
Please pray that our congregation would give generously, motivated by the joy of what God has done.
