LET LOVE BE OUR AIM
In October, we launched our 5-week sermon series exploring the ways God calls us to practice extravagant generosity by discovering our strengths. Last week as we dreamed as a congregation about "all that giving," saying it out loud as we wondered what our ministry would be with "all that giving" the church will receive from us.
This week is Give Thanks All Ways and Commitment Sunday, the culmination of our series. You should have recieved your Giving Guide and Commitment Card in the mail earlier this week (and if not, there are more at church).
As you pray and discern your commitment to our collective ministry from love at Hennepin, please consider the following:
- What new people will be a part of our church community a year from now through all that giving?
- How many more kids will bless us by performing in a youth ensemble through all that giving?
- How many hungry people will we feed here in Minneapolis and overseas through all that giving?
- How will we have transformed our world so all know in their hearts they are loved by God welcome in our church through all that giving?
Did you know that 38%, or 445 households or members, do not contribute financially to Hennepin for our ministry? This year we are asking every household or member to participate in giving at Hennepin for the transformation of our world. We are also asking for our giving to increase by 6% to fully fund our goal of $1.82 million to move forward with confidence and faith in 2020.
The time is now! What commitment will you make to making God's love real?
Please bring your completed Commitment Card to worship this Sunday, or pick one up to fill out during worship and add to the offering.
