christmas offering

This year we want to be more generous than we have ever been before! 

Through our Christmas Offering we are going to:

  • Forgive 1.5 million dollars of medical debt in Camden, Charlton, Nassau and Duval Counties
  • Build a playground for kids on the Christ's Church Camden property

We have set a goal of raising $50,000 to go towards these projects and we hope you'll be a part of it. All gifts are tax deductible. 

Medical debt project

We are partnering with a group called RIP Medical Debt to forgive over 1.5 million dollars of medical debt in Camden, Charlton, Nassau and Duval Counties. Medical debt destroys the financial stability of large segments of America’s most vulnerable communities: the sick, the elderly, the poor, and veterans. It also targets the middle class, driving many families who are barely getting along into poverty. Medical debt isn’t the result of bad decisions. It’s a debt of necessity. By forgiving this debt we strive to give struggling individuals, and their families, a fresh start. We hope to give those affected the ability to seek the continued medical care they need and help them back towards financial stability. 

Once RIP Medical Debt pinpoints the portfolios for those in or near the poverty level, we buy up their debt and forgive it. Then we send forgiveness notices to the benefiting families, and subsequently help the recipients repair their credit reports—renewing their access to opportunities and resources that will allow them to rebuild and recover.

Every family with qualifying debt will receive a letter in the mail letting them know that their debt has been forgiven by their friends at Christ's Church Camden. We can't wait!

playground project

One of the questions we get asked regularly is, "Why don't you guys have a playground?!" Well guess what, we're about to build one! We are a church that LOVES FAMILIES and LOVES HAVING FUN and so a portion of our Christmas Offering will go towards  building a state of the art playground right here on our campus. We believe this will make our church and our community better by giving kids a place to be kids. If you've ever worked on a playground project you know it is no small task. We are working hard to be great stewards of this investment and will only build based on what's given in our Christmas Offering. Our hope is that the kids of Camden County will benefit from this investment for years to come!
