What is this Building Campaign About?
This fall at the Fountain we will be entering into a building campaign. But here’s what it’s not about. It’s not about guilt, pressure, manipulation, or hidden agendas in order to build a new facility. In fact, it’s not about the building at all. It’s really about building up our faith, our commitment, and our willingness to sacrifice. It’s about building into the lives of our people and those who are a part of our community. And it’s about building a tool for ministry that will be used by our church family for many years to come. You see it’s not about a building. It’s about being obedient. It’s about being obedient to God’s plan and His purpose, empowered by His Spirit, so that we might glorify His Son. It’s about doing whatever it takes to reach our community and impact more lives for Jesus. That’s what it’s really about. And that’s why we need you to support this campaign.
Prayer Sunday, September 23, 2018
We will begin this journey on our knees, in prayer... asking God to work in our hearts. It is a journey of faith; He will show us what we should do.
Small Group Presentations
with Practical Giving Discussions
Specific Dates will be published soon. In these presentations (45-60 minutes in length), we will discuss the vision for the building expansion and get answers to your questions in a small-group setting. During our Presentations, you will learn new ideas for stretching your household budget and about how to give in creative ways.
Tax Wise Giving
A 20 minute Tax-Wise Giving Seminar recording and Powerpoint may be found by clicking the buttons below. This seminar is for those who may be thinking about giving “Gifts of Assets” such as personal property, land, stocks, or other non-cash gifts. You will hear tips on how to make these donations and how to maximize your tax benefits while doing so.
Challenge Sunday, October 21, 2018
If you think it’s all about money and filling out pledge cards, you will be pleasantly surprised. The “challenge” of Challenge Sunday will be this: Be still. Listen expectantly. Ask boldly. Obey humbly. We will not talk about equal giving but, rather, equal sacrifice.
Saturday, October 27th, 6:00 AM to Sunday, October 28th, at 6:00 AM
Prayer is the key. We will pray non-stop for 24 hours asking God to help us reach our goal and to bless our lives. More information will be forthcoming and how to sign up for different time slots. This will be a powerful event and key to where God is leading us.
Commitment Sunday, October 28, 2018
On this day we will turn in our sealed Commitment Cards. This will be a time of commitment, sacrifice, and faith. We will have the opportunity to invest in something larger than ourselves—something that will outlast our lives on this earth.
Celebration Sunday, November 11, 2018
We all have 10,000 reasons to praise the Lord for His goodness. On Celebration Sunday, we will announce the total amount committed in faith toward our project. Our goal is $1.5M. We believe that we can reach this amount with God’s help. Whatever the result, we want to give God all the praise and glory!
