I am always anxious for another Sunday for all of us to be together. But I am especially anxious for this coming Sunday. I’m am hoping it will be the first tidal-wave sized surge of momentum in our Raise ‘Em Up building campaign.
Almost two weeks ago, we put a pledge card in your hand designed to help you determine the part you will play in raising up the walls that God is calling us to build. We asked that you take the following two weeks to drop them in the collection box at church or to drop them in the mail. To date, we have received ONE contribution since October 17.
I’m not worried yet, and there’s two reasons why.
- God has clearly lead us to this point, and I don’t believe He plans to hang us out to dry now.
- We still have a few days left of that two week window in which we asked you to return those cards to us.
So here’s my request to all of you. This Sunday, let’s stuff the collection box full of those blue and orange pledge cards and make a huge dent in the work that is in front of us. God is moving in our church, and I am confident that He will move in all of our hearts so that, together, we can make this dream a reality.
I am confident because God has already been moving in the hearts of some who call Midcurrent home. Before the campaign officially launched, a small group of men and women came together to kickstart the project. As a result, we received three-year pledges of $15,000 as well as one-time gifts of $4,000, $5,000, $10,000, $20,000, and even $50,000!
If God is cultivating that kind of generosity in the hearts of a small group of men and women, I cannot wait to see the generosity that will be unleashed from a whole church full of people committed to creating the actual place for real people and a real God to meet.
So Midcurrent, bring those pledge cards back THIS Sunday, and let’s mark Sunday, October 31, 2021 on our calendar as the day that we took one giant step forward in our effort to raise ’em up!
P.S. We are also starting a brand new message series called Dan The Man. We’ll explore the Old Testament book of Daniel to discover how it is we live lives of integrity when it matters most. Don’t miss a single week!
