1% Easter Love Offering
The Christian Song correctly reminds us to, “Count your many blessings, name them one by one and it will surprise you what the Lord has done.” God has blessed so abundantly. We are blessed with family, friends, a wonderful Church family, a beautiful area where we live, protection from the COVID pandemic, and so much more.
Also, take time to count your financial blessings. Perhaps begin with the current value of your home then add your investments, your bank accounts, your cars, etc. It is amazing how God has blessed!
Matthew 6:19-21 (CSB) [Jesus said] “Don’t store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal. 20But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys, and where thieves don’t break in and steal. 21For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.”
Heavenly treasures are people.
Would you be willing to give 1% of your wealth as an Easter Love Offering to reach people with the Gospel by completing and expanding the new Lakefront Campus? To date, we have received almost $2,000,000. The preliminary estimate to complete Phase 1 of the Lakefront Multipurpose Worship Building is $2,700,000.
1% of $1.00 = $.01 – most people will not pick up a penny
1% of $10.00 = $.10 – cannot purchase much with a dime
1% of $100.00 = $1.00 – some items at the dollar store
1% of $1,000.00 = $10.00 – maybe 2 happy meals
1% of $100,000 = $1,000.00 – one month’s house payment
1% of $1,000,000.00 = $10,000.00 – serious money
$10,000 is still only 1%
When does 1% become a problem?
God has given our church family the vision to have a second campus. Through your faithfulness, God has provided the resources to purchase the land. Through your faithfulness, God has provided the resources to build the building. We are almost there!
Please pray about making a heavenly investment by giving 1% of your wealth as a Love Offering to our Lord! This 1% could be a one-time gift or a pledge given over several months.
Heavenly treasures are people. When you invest in ministries that preach the Gospel you are making Heavenly investments!
