TRURO - A local church stands firm that Christmas can change the world for the better.
Immanuel Baptist Church is partnering with Advent Conspiracy to celebrate Christmas by spending less and giving more this holiday season.
The church is raising money to build rainwater harvesting/micro-irrigation systems in rural Bolivia.
"I think we all feel a little guilty every Christmas about the amount of money we spend on stuff we don't really need, especially when many people around the world don't have basic necessities like food and fresh water," said Immanuel's Pastor Cory Somers.
The Advent Conspiracy is a grassroots movement with more than 1,000 churches in 17 countries participating in projects as varied as drilling a water well for those who lack access to clean water to simply encouraging congregations to think of meaningful acts of kindness as meaningful gift options to replace traditional gifts.
Last year, through Advent Conspiracy,
$3 million was raised for relief projects
that included providing clean water and medical attention in communities around the world.
