be rich

Be Rich is a season of generous actions and good deeds toward our community.  We are compelled to generous love because God first loved us, entrusted to us all we have and invited us to manage his resources well and for the good of others. Throughout the year we live this out individually and corporately but each year around the holiday season we challenge ourselves to rise to new heights in good deeds and generous actions.  Keep scrolling to learn how.

4 ways to participate

look for the icon below to see which projects need which assistance

  • We challenge each family to contribute $40 to the cause. Does that seem unreasonable?  Consider $20 or $10.  Does that seem disobedient to the blessings God has entrusted you with?  Consider giving more!  Hit THIS BUTTON   to head to our giving portal.  Indicate Be Rich when giving.


  • Several of our projects need to be resourced.  We are accepting donations of diapers, wipes (see below for details), gift wrap (see below for details) and food (see below for details).  


  • Two projects involve shopping to bless our community: The Giving Tree, our annual Christmas blessing to those in need locally (see below for details) and our Penn Valley teachers Christmas blessing (see below for details).   

  • Use your time and energy to serve.  Various projects will require hands to help and bodies to love on our community in fun, practical and tangible ways. See below for which efforts need volunteers.

  • penn valley christmas Shopping Cart Arrow Down  

    Being an educator is hard work.  This has always been the case but the challenge has increased exponentially due the pandemic.  The average teachers spends $750 of their own money to support their classroom each year.  As part of our Be Rich season we are gifting the educators at Penn Valley with gifts for their classroom, their desk or simply for them as a tangible expression of our love and gratitude for all they do.


    To buy for a teacher, please see the WISH LIST
