The Heart of Christmas Offering starts now and goes through January 31, 2018. Our BIG ONE DAY Offering will happen in all of our Celebration Services on December 17th. That’s the day we’ll all bring our BEST GIFT to JESUS for Christmas!

Over the last year, we have seen so many exciting ways God has worked through The Connection Church here in the Hill Country of South Central Texas. We exist to reach people with the life-changing power of Jesus! This year, we have seen that reach expand to the people in San Marcos with the addition of our second campus. Now, with the Heart of Christmas Offering, we get to grow our impact in our county, expand our ministries to children and families in our church family, and continue to reach those who need Jesus in our world.


Here are the ministry initiatives that giving to The Heart of Christmas Offering will fund

  • Global Impact: We are a church that supports missions. This focus will continue as we fund our adoption of the Agua Zarca village in Guatemala where we feed the more than 50 children each day when they are at school and make improvements in their whole way of life. In 2017, we adopted another village called Plan de Avila that had been without this kind of support. Now, we are sharing vital food and spiritual support to these people who are living in an even more remote area of Guatemala. Download the Agua Zarca profile here.
  • To provide for the purchase of land and building construction/improvement. As we prepare for the bright future God has in store for us, we want to position our church to be ready when God opens the doors for land and a building. We also are committed to continuous improvement for our existing campuses in Buda and San Marcos.
  • To add an additional staff member to support the ministries of our growing church family. The Connection Church continues to grow as we reach people in our community. You’ll find that for a church of our size, we operate with a very efficient (i.e., small in number) team. As we grow, recognize the need to add an additional staff member in 2018 to partner with us in reaching people with the life-changing power of Jesus!

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 17th, 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:
