Video: Highlights of various “Offerings” over the years (for much more, enter “offerings” in the search bar)
You just got a glimpse of some of the fun, amazing, and original Offerings we’ve seen over the past 5 years in this short clip! This year, we will be hosting Offerings 10 on November 20!
“Offerings” was originally developed to get you TD’ers more in touch with your creative side, to help restore holistic balance to otherwise often-imbalanced lives. Today, most TD’ers are spiritual consumers, with few producers. We’d like to work towards changing that reality by challenging you to sit with the Lord, meditate on His Word, and dream, allowing you to create an “offering” to give Him for His pleasure.
Unlike your typical talent show, which highlights the performer, Offerings highlights the greatness of our Creator — through the talents He has given us to create with! Whether through art, music, writing, poetry, reciting, baking, dancing, or whatever you can create, Offerings lets us celebrate and enjoy an amazing God who created amazing people!
Your “offering” doesn’t have to be great or anything; it just has to be from your heart. If it’s great, then great! If it’s amateurish, then great as well! 1Samuel 16:7 says “Man looks at the outward appearance; the Lord looks at the heart.” It’s the heart He’s after … a heart that’s willing to create for Him and take a risk for Him in pointing others to Him.
So, we highly encourage you to take a risk and participate in Offerings 10! The theme is CHIRST FOR REAL. You can do it on your own, or you can collaborate with others. Let your small group leaders know you’re interested, ASAP, so you can start brainstorming and collaborating!
