……..giving beyond our doors

The Big Give started in 2016 as an opportunity to demonstrate our generosity as a church. We asked you to submit nominations for local Burlington organizations that do amazing work in our community. You responded with many wonderful and worthy nominees.

In February 2016 we chose the Carpenter Hospice to be the recipient of a special Sunday offering. We were thrilled to present Carpenter Hospice with over $37,000 towards the work they do in the community. You responded with many wonderful and worthy nominees.
