This year, our |giv| campaign is focused on a new goal of raising $40,000 for our partners. This is money given not toward administration costs, because every dollar you give goes straight to the Grove Way Housing Authority, missionary families, and to our church plant in Miami. We will also give to Send Network, the International Mission Board, and to a brand new Northside Church planting fund.
Let me ask you to consider giving generously to the |giv| campaign. Some families and individuals may consider the cost of their most expensive present, and giving that amount. Others can look at the dollar amounts that we will be giving to each partner, and consider giving an amount to partially or fully cover that partner.
In reality, the presents we can live without. Christmas is a time to remember that God did for us what we could never do for ourselves. He sent his Son to take away the sins of the world. Let's be bold and sacrificial as a response to God's love for each one of us.
Our total goal is $40,000 with the following individual contribution goals:
