For the last four years, our church family has prayerfully sacrificed and given over $1.3 million (in addition to our General Fund giving) to expand facilities, plant churches, and give to missions projects. The pandemic didn’t stop this mighty work of God, though prices went up and timelines changed. We planted a church in 2021, sent out $20,000 to mission projects, and did $250,000 of facility projects on our own in 2022. Our church continues to grow, and we believe the Lord has asked us to expand our current facilities to reach more people and facilitate more ministry. This is Building Hope.
It is a special opportunity to give to a big project, designed to make an eternal impact in people's lives. You can either give a one time or ongoing gift. One-time gift are helpful, and ongoing gifts are even better. Our goal is for all ages and income levels to participate — not equal gifts but equal sacrifice — so that together we live out the mission of Jesus.
We have new set of conceptual plans (see below), and they give a great picture of the basic layout for new construction. We are working to refine these plans, fit them to budget, and get the next approvals from the county.
In 2022, we took it upon ourselves to work on our outdoor space - including a new playground for kids, a back patio, and expanded walkways. This hard work, overseen or done by the people of our church, saved an estimated $200,000 in costs.
8% of all Building Hope funds go towards church planting. We have committed to giving $30,000 towards Radiant Covenant, planted in 2021 with Modesto Covenant Church. We are excited to be part of more church planting- additional funds mean MORE churches being planted, which means MORE people can be reached with Jesus!
2% of Building Hope funds go towards mission projects. We sent out $20,000 in 2021-22, and we are honored to be able to send out more through future giving. See the graphic for the list of projects our Missions Team prayerfully decided to donate to so far!
Prayer moves mountains and our hearts closer to Jesus. Our number one goal for every person in our church is deeper prayer. Grab a prayer card and be faithful in daily prayer.
Everything we have is from our Father, and we can’t out-give God. It is an honor to give back to God’s work. Consider again all the Lord has given and what He is asking you to give.
This is a chance to give again to something that is bigger than ourselves and sacrificially give to the mission of Jesus. We have Pledge Cards available for those who want to join the many in our church (and beyond) who have made sacrificial pledges for this mighty work of the Lord.
