Generosity isn’t about how much you GIVE, it’s about how much it COSTS you.  And when you give the BEST, it costs the MOST.  Coming up this August, we are going to make an INTENTIONAL effort as a church to lead the way in generosity and it’s going to require BIG sacrifice and RADICAL generosity.  It’s one of our core values we have as a church.  We serve a RADICALLY generous God, so we’re going to be RADICALLY generous people.  Check out this video.

Our outreach team has worked HARD on starting to plan out the month of August.  It is going to be HUGE in the life of our church and in IMPACT to our community.  1,000 backpacks and school supplies for students, 10,000 hours of service to our community, AND we are also doing the Element 5k run on August 25th where $15 of the $20 registration fee goes STRAIGHT to Comea Homeless Shelter and Life Choice Pregnancy Care Center.  You can register HERE for the 5k.  More detailed info and sign up opportunities will be coming as the month of August approaches.

Now those are high and lofty goals.  It WILL require sacrifice for us to meet them.  But I want to challenge us to do more.  I’d love to see us give 1,500 backpacks, serve 15,000 hours and be RADICALLY generous to our community.  As a church we are giving 15% of every offering in August towards outreach and generosity.  I’m giving you 4 months advance warning to start praying about and planning for how YOU can be involved.  The only way we’ll accomplish these goals is with EVERYONE participating.

Individually we can’t do EVERYTHING, but we can all do SOMETHING, and when we all do SOMETHING, we end up accomplishing EVERYTHING!

Ezekiel 16:49 says Sodom’s sins were pride, gluttony, and laziness, while the poor and needy suffered outside her door.

May that not be said about us.
