Four Specific Ways You Can Be Involved
Accomplishing a God-sized vision is only possible with God’s
blessing, provision and guidance. It also requires us who are part of
His Church to join Him in what He is doing by doing our part to
accomplish His vision and plan. When we trust Him to help us do our part
and step out in faith, we grow spiritually and the Church’s impact and
influence is multiplied and amazing things happen. While there will be
many ways for us to become involved in the TRANSFORM VISION 2020 between
now and December 2020, there are four specific ways we encourage you to
consider being part of it now.
1 Regularly Pray for God’s Blessing and Provision
Prayer makes a difference. Pray for God to continue guiding those in
leadership as they make decisions. Pray no unforeseen construction
expenses arise during the construction process. Pray that all the
required permits and government approvals are completed quickly.
2 Commit to Regularly Pray for and Influence Others Who Are Not Yet Followers of Jesus
Our TRANSFORM VISION 2020 is all about God and people. It is about our church helping as many people
as possible be transformed by Jesus Christ so they can have a personal
relationship with the God of the universe. We encourage you to commit to
regularly pray for and do all you can to influence at least two people
who are not yet followers of Jesus and/or don’t go to church with the
goal they would begin a relationship with Jesus.
3 Give a Special Offering
On Sunday, May 20, we received a special offering during our
worship services for our TRANSFORM VISION 2020 Building Fund. We
encouraged people to prayerfully consider what God would have them give to
help us accomplish the vision God has given us. You can still be part of that by giving a special offering now. As you give, please give
“above and beyond” your regular church giving, & give “willingly &
cheerfully” in response to God’s blessings & generosity in your life
(2 Corinthians 9:6–10). TRANSFORM offering envelopes are available at the church. You can also give your offering on the OC App
or CLICK HERE TO GIVE ONLINE NOW. When giving online, please choose the “May 20th Transform Offering” fund.
4 Make a Faith Commitment to Regularly Give to the Transform Vision 2020 Building Fund
We also ask you to prayerfully consider how you might invest
financially in our vision by regularly giving to the TRANSFORM VISION
2020 Building Fund between now & December 2020. Please keep in mind
the following as you consider what you might give:
- The amount you put on the card is a
Faith Commitment between you & God. It is NOT a contract with the
church. Your Faith Commitment & offerings are always kept in complete
confidence. If your financial situation changes, you may increase or
decrease your giving level.
- Sharing your Faith Commitment with us by turning in the card helps us
plan for our future & be good managers of God’s money & your gifts.
It will also help you follow through with your commitment & provide a
benchmark for you to see how God provided what you are trusting Him to
help you give.
- If you are currently giving to the Building Fund, please include that amount as part of your Faith Commitment.
- If you choose to give stocks, bonds, or assets, please note your
desire on the Faith Commitment Card. We will contact you to talk about
the best way to make those kinds of donations to the church.
- Faith Commitment cards are available at the church in the seat backs. You can complete them at any time & return them in the offering plate or mail them to the church. You can
also complete your Faith Commitment Card on the OC App or CLICK HERE TO COMPLETE THE FAITH COMMITMENT CARD ONLINE NOW.
