RESTORING HOPE LOCALLY + GLOBALLY.
Celebration Church is called to influence culture, it’s about Kingdom living. At the center of this influence is the desire to see God restore hope. All people matter. All people need Jesus. God in his mercy chooses to use us! He uses our time, talent, and our treasure to restore hope. Every day is an opportunity. Kingdom living requires action. It requires obedience. It’s not just inside the church; it’s outside the four walls of the church. It happens in our homes, our jobs, our extra activities, our community events, and our short –term trips. It’s showing what God is doing in your life to all people all the time.
Kingdom Offering is an annual, one-time offering dedicated to making a local and international impact to reach broken and lost people through Celebration Missions. This offering is the primary means by which we supply resources to strategic assignments within Celebration Missions.
The Kingdom Offering goes to support our overseas missionaries, short-term missions, national outreach programs, and local community initiatives, here in the city of Raleigh and at Celebration Church! Locally to globally, through Kingdom Offering, we are restoring hope, because we’re all about people.
For all creation is waiting eagerly for that future day when God will reveal who his children really are.
SERVE DAY IS SHARING THE LOVE OF GOD
THROUGH PRACTICAL ACTS OF KINDNESS
Simple acts of selfless love can open hearts to Jesus, and together we can make a difference. It's a revolution sparked through serving – it’s a culture of serving others all day and infusing that culture into our everyday lives.
We are actively pursuing the lost, the forgotten, and the poor to show them a God who is passionately in love with them. We stand ready with one heart, saying, “I will serve others and show them the hope they have through Jesus.”

The Mission of Celebration Church is to teach and mobilize people to make a kingdom impact in our community. We accomplish this mission by strategic partnerships with ministries and organizations in our community.
Creation is waiting! Let’s see hope restored!
Then I heard the voice of the LORD saying, “Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?” And I said, “Here am I. Send me!”

WHERE DO I GET THE MONEY TO GO ON A TRIP?
Each team member has the opportunity to personally contribute and raise his or her own financial support in order to go on a short-term mission trip. We have found that many people don’t have the time or ability to go on a short-term mission trip but have the desire to be involved in some way. We ask, therefore, that every person going on a trip raise his/her funds by writing letters to friends and family sharing the goal of the trip and the financial requirements to make the trip happen.
To give towards the cost of a trip, have the mission team member send you their personal giving link. Funds given through that link will specifically go towards their trip expenses.
If you would like to give towards an active trip, click the button below. Choose an active trip from the menu and click the give button. Fill in your giving information and any special instructions. An confirmation email with details will be sent to you.
