Our church is reaching out to the community is a major way, making things happen and serving those in need. Looking back a few weeks, we had over a thousand (!!!!) attend Worship Services during our Easter celebration. Our Servant Day event in May was outstanding touching many in need throughout our community. This is excellent news and deserving of much thanksgiving for all the efforts YOU have put forth.
How are we able to do this, reaching many hundreds of people and providing a place for fellowship, study and Worship. Frankly we provide this opportunity through your financial commitment to this ministry. Looking back at the numbers, we have over two hundred members giving annually to the ministry of JLC. On average, we had 136.3 members (giving units) contributing monthly to the general fund ministry budget in 2013. This grew to 141.2 members on average in 2016 and 155 average monthly members contributing financial offerings in 2017. We have so much potential. What if every member gave contributions to this ministry each month? What if every member gave something each week? The Capital fund offerings are received from an average of 65.3 members each month. That number has been rather stagnated for a couple three years. What if we paid off the mortgage and had those offerings for ministry outreach? Think what amazing things we could do for those in need if everyone contributed and maybe just a little more than before. What great things can you think of that we could accomplish? What specific ministries are on your mind, what can we do together?
Something to think about, right?
