The One Day Offering in December was a great success. Thank you is in order again! One that is of eternal significance. We are celebrating God’s faithfulness and your generosity. The response in the midst of challenging economic times and a busy holiday season is tremendous. Our total for this One Day Offering is $83,793. This total represents an increase of $23,710 from our One Day Offering in December of 2011. For you percentage point folks out there, that is 39% growth. Wow!
While it is fantastic to celebrate growth and increases, at the heart of our celebration is the needs of people being met across the globe. As a result of our generosity as a faith family and your gifts to the One Day Offering:
- there will be less orphans and victims of human trafficking,
- seekers in Brussels, Belgium can hear the truth of Scripture and the reality of the Gospel in their native language,
- more young people in Bangkok, Thailand will take next steps to know Jesus and follow His plan for their life, and
- our local brothers and sisters in Christ will discover hope during some of their most challenging days.
So, let’s celebrate! Thank you for living out our characteristic of a Christ-centered life we call Generosity. We are making eternal investments. We are changing lives. We are partnering together to Send the Church to Be the Church where there is No Church. A great reminder of how bright our light is for Jesus through our collective generosity. Thank you for helping us accomplish such a wonderful response to the needs in our world for the Gospel. Be sure to mark you calendar for our next One Day Offering on Sunday, April 21.
