I Normally Don’t Do This
It’s the end of the year and I’m writing you because we need to share a few things with you! As a church we have seen a TON of amazing things happen this year. We have had SO many people commit their lives to Christ & get baptized – marriages restored – families put back together – people growing in their relationship with Jesus – and on and on.
While there has been SO MUCH good, I have to inform you about something that is a challenge. We are ending our financial year and we are not where we need to be yet.
Our financial goal for the month of December was $60,000. This would cover operating expenses & our Serve the World Campaign (the amount needed to fund our work in Haiti, the Philippines, and other local & global mission work)
At this moment we are at $50,800!
While I’m sure we ALL greatly enjoyed a white Christmas – having to cancel our church services this past Sunday did not help our cause. As well, many of you have been out of town over the Christmas holiday & may not have had the opportunity to generously give towards this.
We are $9,200 from finishing strong! We are asking you and every person that loves this church to make a year-end donation that will bridge the gap from where we are to where we need to be.
We do not want to start another year hoping we do well financially! We want to finish strong so we can start ministering strong in 2011!
So I’m asking you to:
1. Ask God, “What do you want me to do financially this year?”
2. Give a year-end gift to help our cause — Drop it by or mail to our church office, Give online – http://eaglepointe.org/#/give-online, or drop it in the offering basket this Sunday & note “year end” in the memo section. * To count towards 2010 taxes it must be postmarked by Dec. 31st.
3. Ask God to bless the gift so many lives will be touched
