Between now and September 15th, we have the opportunity to eliminate an internal debt of $28,000. The Leadership Board is calling this mini-campaign "Precious Stones." The name comes from King David's gathering of gifts to build the temple in 1 Chronicles 29. David said, "And now, because of my devotion to the Temple of God, I am giving all of my own private treasures of gold and silver to help in the construction. This is in addition to the building materials I have already collected for his holy Temple…Now then, who will follow my example and give offerings to the Lord today?" (vs. 3 & 5).
The invitation is simple: Each contributing household who calls the Church "home" gives a one-time, over and above their regular giving gift of $300 designated to "Precious Stones." This will enable us to pay back to our 1impact Fund the $28,000 we borrowed in 2012 to balance our budget. Paying back this internal loan will enable us to reach our 1impact goals.
To date we have recieved gifts from 105 families totalling 28,923 dollars. We have paid back the amount borrrowed from the 1impact campaign. Thank you!!
