When we launched the church in 2009, we committed to supporting global missions, evangelism, and church planting. We wanted to be a generous church that reached out by faith and impacted lives through strategic partnerships. God brought wonderful opportunities our way, and we've seen lives impacted in Romania, Ukraine, Scotland, Uganda, Turks & Caicos, and Venezuela. We've also seen God impact lives coast-to-coast in the U.S. through partners like the National School Project and the Great Commission Collective.
In order to sustain our support for our strategic partners, we are launching the Global Missions Fund. We need to raise targeted funds to prepare for opportunities that arise through our network and to fulfill our ongoing commitments. In response to the past two years and the uncertainty ahead, we've trimmed our budget and tightened our spending. Having a dedicated Global Missions Fund will ensure that our commitments remain in place regardless of what happens to the economy in the days ahead.
We want to say YES when our missionary partners need support. Thank you in advance for your generosity to our partners like Pastor Alex, Mark and Sarah, Philip in Uganda, and those at the National School Project! Please give this gift above and beyond your regular offerings.
