UVGive: Christ Community Chapel Students Loving, Giving

He defends the cause of the fatherless and the widow, and loves the foreigner residing among you, giving them food and clothing.
Deuteronomy 10:18

God shows His love by giving. 

Providing for the needs of the less fortunate.

How about today?

God’s people serve as His hands and feet, communicating His love to our neighbors in need.

His people in Christ Community Chapel Student Ministries, across all four campuses, have risen to a challenge – the #UVGive challenge.  Our large Student Ministries team shows how much more believers can do together, rather than separately. 

Think a “loaves and fishes” challenge.

 Urban Vision Set On Success students pair with tutors

What challenge?

#UVGive invited CCC students to give up $25 or more in gifts they would have received this Christmas to help feed at-risk kids served by Urban Vision’s Set On Success after school tutoring program. Demand for meals recently spiked from 20 per day, to 90 per day!

The #UVGive goal was to provide funding for 4 months of meals. 

UV Volunteers serve students healthy meals

Food is love. So is volunteering as a tutor!


Christ Community Chapel students, members and friends, contributed $5,890.83 as of December 19th.

But wait – there’s more!

Some families stepped up at Urban Vision. They offered to match up to $61,000 in donations to UV in December. So, the gift will be doubled.

Grand total, doing the math:

$11,781.66 = 7,854 meals = 90 kids at Urban Vision being fed for 17 ½ weeks. Nearly 4 ½ months!

Servant hearts, bound together by the love of Christ, can do great things for the Kingdom.

How can I join in what God is doing?
