God continues to bless us as our membership grows. Yet with this growth comes a challenge. Since our current monthly income must be used for our operating budget, we must now focus on a solution to maintain the positive mission and ministry of Calvary Baptist Church.
Project 28:20 is the name we have chosen for our campaign out of 1 Chronicles 28:20. We believe that with God’s guidance, this ministry will fulfill the financial needs of this new phase of our church growth. As part of our Project 28:20 program, every household is asked to prayerfully consider making a sacrificial commitment—over and above your ongoing tithes and offerings—to be given over the next three years. We hope to raise the necessary funds in order to move forward in our ministry. As you can see, Project 28:20 is an important step to our future, and your involvement impacts its success.
I’d like to invite you to attend Vision Sunday scheduled on Sunday, February 27. There you will learn more about our building program and our Project 28:20 campaign. We will discuss the importance of church-wide prayer during this crucial time, and we will share information about our church and its ministry. No financial commitments will be asked for or received that day.
The purpose of Vision Sunday is to share information with you, to answer any questions you might have, and to encourage you to make this a special matter in your daily personal prayers. Please come to Vision Sunday as an example of support. Your attendance will also encourage others. We hope you’ll make arrangements to attend.
These are exciting days of decision in our church. Let us commit to seek and act in God’s will. To the glory of God, we will move ahead with faith.
