Gotta Read This…

 

Colin Letter

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! 

One to Remember

We had an incredible day on Sunday as a precursor to what God is going to do this coming weekend!

114 people gave their lives to Christ.

Hundreds of bikes given out to families in our community.

I could go on and on.

Instead I’ll leave you with a picture that sums it up…

MidWeek Review

  • Last week was Bikes or Bust week and we had a blast surpassing our goal and raising enough money to purchase 350 bikes for kids at 11 schools in our community.
  • The staff and volunteers that I have the privilege to lead are exceptional. That fact was on display once again through Bikes or Bust.
  • On Sunday we did a Bless Back project for families in our community by giving free haircuts and pictures with Santa. Once again, our team did an exceptional job making an impact in the lives of people.
  • The Do You See What I See Initiative is in full swing and I love seeing the generosity of our church continue to build.
  • Raising $650,000 over and above our normal giving during the month of December will be a miracle for our less than 5 year old church. I am grateful that God is in the miracle working business.
  • Devin and I gave toward this initiative this week and we are excited about seeing what God does with – by far – the largest one time gift we have ever given.
  • The stories we have already heard of sacrifice and generosity have been inspiring.
  • We are only 11 days away from the 1st of 3 Christmas Eve Worship Experiences. Begin praying and inviting now as this is going to be one of the most life-changing weekends in the history of our church.
  • The crew that makes this possible every year is second to none. Can’t wait to experience Christmas in Technicolor at Freedom Church. You have three opportunities: Sunday, December 23rd at 7PM and Monday, December 24th at 2PM & 4PM.
  • This coming Sunday is going to be one of our best ever. Can’t wait til Sunday!
