Dear Renovation Church Family,
I want to take a minute to thank you for your incredible generosity. In our second year as a church, we have given over $17,000 to outreach – both locally and internationally. This is only possible through the generous giving of those inside and from outside of our church who believe in and support the mission God has given us.
The Apostle Paul, in his short letter to the church in Ephesus, says it this way – “Now to him who is able to do above and beyond all that we ask or think according to the power that works in us—to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen.”
Friends, we serve a God who is more than able to provide for our needs – both as a church and as individuals. This past November we had our first ever “Giving Sunday” and were able to give $1,510 to the Garretson Community Ambulance. Our goal is to do a “Giving Sunday” once every two months where we give 100% of our offering to another organization in our community (this is in addition to missionary support). We really believe that the Church should be the most generous people on the face of the earth!
As we continue to grow, God continues to provide for our needs through the giving of His people. The primary reason we are passionate about being a portable church rather than pursuing a large building campaign, is so we can steward the financial resources we have as a church for the benefit of the community and the spread of the Gospel. For the first 300 years of Christianity there was no such thing as a church building – instead, the church practiced radical generosity and increased in favor with the people (Acts 5:13).
I seriously cannot wait to see what God is going to do in 2019 through our church and other churches in the area. I really believe the best is yet to come. It is an absolute honor to be one of the leaders of Renovation Church – thank you for allowing God to use you through your prayer, serving, and giving so that we can fulfill the mission God has given us of making disciples of all the nations.
