Each month, our community collects a specific kind of item for donation to the Hesed House mission in Aurora. Our mission for the month of April will be Deodorant. Please drop your donations off at the Hospitality table on Sunday mornings. To learn more about Hesed House, visit hesedhouse.org.
Regarding regular giving, financial gifts, and other donations—The Edge does not pass a basket or take offerings during the service, but we do believe the people of God are called to radical generosity! If you consider The Edge your home and want to give, we would love for you to use our online giving system for scheduled or one-time gifts by visiting our giving page. You can also drop your gifts in the offering box (by the main entrance of the auditorium) during Sunday morning service.
