2017 Christmas Offering Update

Thank you for generously giving to YC's 2017 Christmas Offering campaign.  Donations to-date total $113,730 for the first phase of our $225,000 campus-wide project.  Here is a project update:

Your giving has allowed us to bless our ministry partner, Hope Mountain, in their work with sex trafficking victims in the Philippines.  In addition, we will move forward with various campus improvement projects, including the construction of a fellowship courtyard (off of El Capitan) and energy-efficient lighting upgrades in all buildings and parking areas.

The new courtyard will provide additional outdoor space for Latino services, Next Generation programming, and special events such as weddings and holiday festivities.  It will create needed foot traffic access from El Capitan to Half Dome Worship Center, reducing our watering impact and eliminating chronic drainage issue.

The project begins 8/8, and will be completed by December.  If you would like to donate our 2017 Christmas Offering campaign click below.

From Dollars to sense

This video is what Dollars to Sense is all about. Your Christmas Offering will allow Yosemite Church to transform our exterior campus and make it more funcional for fellowship and community, while at the same time saving our dollars in landscaping and watering costs. Our savings will translate into more dollars going to feeding the hungry, healing the broken and caring for the needy in our community and abroad.

The Hope Mountain Aftercare

Yosemite Church will be tithing, giving 10% of this year's Christmas Offering, to The Hope Mountain Aftercare Center in Cebu, Philippines, a residential center for children rescued from online sexual exploitation due to parental perpetrators.  Currently there are no other facilities that accept brothers and sisters, so siblings are separated.  The trauma experienced by these young children is indescribable.   A donation to the Hope Mountain Foundation will go directly to the construction of this facility.

  • 2013 - Knock out the debt

    Back in 2013 we launched our very first Christmas Offering with Knock Out The Debt.  With your generous giving donation we were able to pay off our mortgage and become completely debt free!

  • 2014 - love builds the house

    In 2014 our Christmas Offering campaign was Love Builds The House.  With your loving donations, we were able to completely renovate the lobby, the main worship center and the stage space to better accommodate the needs of all of you.

  • 2015 - go atwater

    In 2015, the Christmas Offering campaign was GO ATWATER!  With your giving, we were able to launch our very first satellite church in Atwater.  We were also able to bless the Merced Rescue Mission with a financial donation.

  • 2016 - half dome kitchen & childcare wing renovation

    Last year, in 2016 the Christmas Offering went to the Half Dome kitchen and childcare wing renovation.  Through your generous giving, we were able to make much needed improvements to the kitchen to meet the needs of our church body.  And with the childcare renovation, we were able to create an inviting space for both parents and children.  If you've not seen these upgrades, I encourage you to just take a walk down to the kitchen and the childcare wing. You will not be disappointed!
