From Pastor Cole:

The music, the spirit, the family, the food! Christmas really is one of my favorite times of the year! I hope you’re ready to get in on the Heart of Christmas too!

On December 2nd, we’ll be kicking off our brand new series called The Heart of Christmas all about the true meaning of Christmas. Christmas is always an important time for giving. During this season, we’ll be bringing a special Heart of Christmas offering to worship Jesus, the Birthday Boy! The reason we have our Christmas offering is to help us make sure Jesus is the top priority in our life and our Christmas season.

We’re asking every person who is a part of The Connection Church family to prayerfully consider bringing an offering over and above your normal giving through The Heart of Christmas offering. This will greatly help us continue to be the light of Jesus in Central Texas that God has called us to be.

Guatemala Christmas

This offering will help us fund the many life-changing ministries that happen through The Connection Church each and every week, including the many ways we assist those in need right here in Central Texas. But the best part of the offering is that it also enables us to feed the 150 children in our 3 villages in Guatemala every school day. In 2018, we have already provided nearly 50,000 meals for kids who have limited resources and very limited access to healthy meals. They especially enjoy the Christmas parties we funded for them this year!

The way my family decides how much to give is by determining how much our most expensive Christmas gift will be and then making sure we bring at least that much for our Christmas offering. That way, Jesus stays FIRST on our Christmas list

Through your radical generosity, we will be able to be the hands and feet of Jesus for thousands of people in the coming year! We’re excited that God is using us to make a difference around the world!


On December 16th, we’re asking everyone to bring their first and best offering to one of our Celebration Services. We will be receiving a special offering in each of our worship celebrations focused on bringing the love and hope of Jesus to those who need it the most.

  • Pray and ask God what He would have you give “over and above” your regular tithes and offerings. We can’t all give the same amount, but we can all do something.
  • Bring your “over and above” offerings with you through January 31st as we celebrate His blessings or give online now using the link below:

Will you begin praying now about what God would have you give, over and above your regular giving, to this Christmas Offering? God has given us a great mission, and we’re blessed to be able to join Him in advancing the Gospel around the world! I thank God for using us to save lives through The Connection Church. Let God stretch your faith!
