Our church is preparing to give towards our Do You See What I See Initiative this weekend.
We have set a goal of $650,000 over and above our normal giving – THIS month (We decided to do a one-month initiative rather than a year long campaign).
Obviously, we will need every single person that calls Freedom Church home to give sacrificially in order to see this become reality. My family has committed to sacrifice heavily for this initiative. Two-thirds of our volunteers have already committed over $480,000. Now, we need your help to raise the additional $170,000 that we need to reach our goal this weekend.
Stories of sacrifice and generosity have been steadily coming in and the one I received today was extra special.
I got this email from the mom of a child in Kindergarten on Sunday. “My 5 year old son (Colin) went into the worship experience with me today. I really didn’t think he was paying attention but on the way home he said he wanted to give his tooth fairy money ($12) for the new church building! He is writing you a letter right now and we will mail it tomorrow” (A picture of the letter is at the top)
We’ve prayed all along that we would raise enough money this weekend so that only God could receive the credit. $650,000 in one day – at a church less than 5 years old – would be a miracle. If we all come together and give sacrificially – like a 5 year old named Colin – based on revelation (asking God what He wants us to give and then obeying) rather than reason (a token dollar amount that we can easily afford) we will see God perform a miracle right before our eyes. Together we can see this happen!
