Strong Finishes & Fast Starts

Strong Finishes & Fast Starts

by Jacob LaBahn

When asked what is important to success, most coaches will answer, “We’ve got to start fast and finish strong.”

This Christmas season we at Redeemer have the opportunity to do both of these things with our year end giving.

This month we are asking that you would pray about giving a special offering above and beyond your tithe marked “Christmas Presence”. We are planning to use the Christmas Presence funds to spread the Gospel of Jesus further and farther.

Further – We are going to use 50% of the Christmas Presence funds to further our children’s ministry. We have been blessed at Redeemer with an abundance of children, and we need more space, more supplies, and more volunteers to meet their needs. The Christmas Presence funds will help us with the resources we need to teach these precious little children about our Risen Savior.

Farther – We are going to use 40% of the Christmas Presence funds to spread the Gospel of Jesus farther around the country and around the world. Redeemer is part of the Acts 29 church planting network, and we are going to use a portion of the Christmas Presence funds to support their efforts. We are also going to use a portion of the funds to support the Southern Baptist International Mission Board’s efforts to minister to the world through the Lottie Moon offering.

The remaining 10% of the Christmas Presence money will be used for some tech updates that we need to make.

Also a strong finish in our yearly giving will put us in a great position to start next year with a bang.

As always thank you so much for your prayers and support of Redeemer as we strive to finish strong in 2016 and start fast in 2017!

Grace & Peace
