Dear Crossings Family,
As we embark on this wonderful season of cooler temperatures, I wanted to take a moment to reflect on the faith journey that lies ahead of us. In our recent Cultiv8 series, we delved into the parable of the sower in Luke 8, where we learned about the significant responsibility of the farmer. Jesus teaches us that the seed represents the Word of God, and we, as the Church, are symbolized by the farmer.
Just like the farmer, our mission is to engage, equip, and empower homes for gospel transformation. We are called to spread the seeds of God's word, even in the face of life's challenges and uncertainties. This calling encompasses all our ministry endeavors, from Kids Ministry to Groups and Missions. However, it is our financial giving that paves the way for these efforts to bear fruit.
We have faithfully set a bold goal of raising one million dollars over our operating expenses in the next 15 months. Why? Because every dollar sown into this ministry serves as a seed for transformation. Additionally, we believe that God has led us to our current ministry location with the purpose of acquiring it as our permanent ministry home.
As we approach the end of another year, our ability to pursue this faithful goal starts with closing the budget gap for 2023. Therefore, I invite you to actively participate in this season of sowing. Take the time to prayerfully consider how you can contribute financially to help us take these crucial first steps.
As of today, we are praying for $300,000 by December 31, 2023 to close the gap.
Every dollar you give makes a tangible impact in the gospel transformation stories. Thank you for your ongoing faithfulness and generosity. Your support allows us to carry out the mission of His church and make a positive impact in our community and world. May we all experience the abundant blessings that come from aligning our hearts and resources with the work of His kingdom.
Praying and giving with you,
