"Rexanne and I love to be generous. We love to give the first ten percent (10%) of our income to the Lord as a Tithe, which equals a little more than $500.00 per month through Central Baptist Church. Nevertheless, it would be hard for us to say that this church needs our money. We are only one of a large number of families who regularly give to God through the church. The church will not go out-of-business without our money. This truth helps us remember that financial giving is not about the church needing our money. Giving brings our family a sense of joy, meaning, happiness, and spiritual growth in our relationship with God and other Christians. The central focus of our need to give."
The Ministry of Trustees is sponsoring the 2015 Stewardship Fundraising Campaign, Building for the Future, starting Sunday, September 28. The focus of this annual pledge drive is asking the question: 'What percentage of our income is God calling us to give through Central Baptist Church; not what the church needs to receive.' I hope you will join us on Sunday, September 28 for worship and a free meal to celebrate Fundraising Sunday. Remember, this is a free meal provided by the Ministry of Trustees, not a carry-in potluck dinner. Please watch your mail box for a Fundraising Campaign booklet and instructions mailed on Monday, September 22, 2014. Bring your completed Estimate of Giving pledge card to worship on Sunday, September 28, 2014. We hope you will come!
Ivan, Rexanne, and family!
