The Big Give
WHAT IS THE BIG GIVE?
The Big Give is our church's annual Christmas tradition of living out the words of Jesus, "It is more blessed to give than to receive" (Acts 20:35). It's one day when we take up the biggest offering we can muster and give every bit of it away. Our goal for 2022 was to raise $250,000 and give all of it away, and thanks to your generosity and God's faithfulness...we passed our goal!!
Our Big Give goal for 2023 is…$325,000
Each year, we select organizations to partner with that impact our local community, our region, our nation, and the world. To read more about past and ongoing giving relationships at Aletheia, check out our partnerships page.
We're excited to watch our church grow in generosity throughout the year and can't wait to see what's next.
HERE ARE OUR 2023 BIG GIVE PARTNERSHIPS
ORPHANetwork is a local-church based relief ministry in Nicaragua.

In total, ORPHANetwork reaches 20,000+ vulnerable and orphaned children across Nicaragua, through the work of local churches and partner orphanages.

This is an exciting year for our church-planting partnerships. Over the past 10 years, we've been able to help fun 10 church plants through The Big Give! This year is extra special as we'll be partnering with two of our very own church plants—Aletheia Boston and Aletheia North Shore. Every Nation Churches & Ministries has a heart for church planting and we want to be one of the biggest sending churches. We want to see New England full of churches during our time.
