The Church of the Nazarene in Gorre, Albania, worships in an old community center built as a lunch space for laborers. Pastor Ermal remembers eating meals with his father there when he was a child. Today, it is used as the church building and meets the needs of the community around them. This church now owns the building they worship in thanks to Alabaster offerings. As beneficiaries of Alabaster offerings in the past, the Gorre Church now gives generously every year to Alabaster so others can have buildings and property to reach their communities. Read the full Gorre Church Alabaster story here.
Everyone can give to Alabaster! There are no age limits, and there are no offerings too small or too large! Alabaster offerings are expressions of our love for Christ. Just as Mary poured out her costly perfume as her sacrificial love gift to Jesus, let us pour out our sacrificial love gifts to Him for the purpose of spreading His love throughout the world. Alabaster is the building fund of global missions in the Church of the Nazarene.
