1 for 1 Challenge
As we celebrate or church's 111th anniversary we want to do something significant to commemorate this milestone. To this end we are launching our 1 for1 campaign. We are asking our members to give one dollar ($1) for every year of our church's presence in the College Hill community.
The funds raised through this effort will go exclusively to the Mission and Outreach efforts of our church. This is in keeping with our vision and motto to Love the Lord, Grow the Believer and REACH THE WORLD!
FBCCH currently supports sixteen missionaries and mission projects comprised of foreign (6) and domestic (10) missionaries. In 2016 we would like to fully fund these efforts outside of our regular budget through this Anniversary initiative.
This giving opportunity replaces the annual Christmas offering and offers an extended giving period from Sunday October 18th (Anniversary Sunday) to November 22nd (Thanksgiving Sunday).
We know that there will be some who are unable to give the full amount and others who are able to do more, so we encourage you to pray and ask the Lord what he would have you to do.
Anniversaries are about more than looking back, it is also about looking forward. We look forward to the completion of the churches in Malawi and Haiti, and the clinic in Jamaica. We look forward to the training of additional pastors in South Africa, and the continued provision of food and clothing here at home. For the counseling and protection of those affected by Domestic Violence and the continued support of Abe Brown Ministries to those behind prison walls.
If you truly want to invest in something worthwhile look no further. Please use the enclosed envelope to make your donation or click here.
Are you up for the challenge? Let's go 1 for 1.
For the Kingdom,
S. Evan Burrows
