Each and every week we are asking you to give 1 extra dollar on Sunday morning. The hope is that every single person in this church, from age 2 to 102 would share and give away 1 dollar each and every week. As a church we will collect all of that money and give it away that very next week to families in need right here in our community. It might only be $1, but when we all commit to it, and when we all do it together, The Lord will turn it into so much more.
In addition to giving 1 extra dollar every week, we are challenging each of you to give 1% more of your income to this church than you did last year. For those of you who didn’t give anything last year, the math should be relatively straight forward – give 1% of your income to the work and mission of this church. And for those that did give something, increase that number by 1%. The challenge is this – stretch yourself, sacrifice something, find a way to increase your giving by 1%.
If the percentage thing doesn’t do it for you, we are challenging you to give a 1 time financial gift to this church to help us start this new season of ministry off right. The staff at West Bowles is beginning to dream big dreams for God and in order to see those dreams become a reality, we are going to need greater resources.
So church – let’s give 1 – $1, 1%, and/or a 1 time gift. Let’s put God to the test!
