Making the Kingdom of God a Priority

Making the Kingdom of God a Priority

Jesus is clear that if we make the Kingdom of God our priority, “all
these other things will be given you as well” (Matt. 6:33).

The Kingdom of God is centered on the Lordship of Jesus Christ. Our
citizenship in the kingdom is built on trusting our Lord and Savior always,
and in all things. We trust in a benevolent king who gave his life to make
us free (Gal 5:1). Our Lord has not only given us freedom, but also
precious promises so that we no longer need to be bound by fears and
anxiety.

“So do not worry about tomorrow: tomorrow will take care of itself”

Matthew 6:34

Jesus also compared the Kingdom to a mustard seed, “which, when sown on
the ground, is the smallest of all the seeds on earth, yet when it is sown
it grows up and becomes larger than all the garden plants and puts out
large branches, so that the birds of the air can make nests in its shade”
(Mark 4:31-32).

What began in Jerusalem with a small band of followers has become an
international enterprise as more and more disciples of Christ are made.
Christians in every generation ensure the ongoing growth of the kingdom by
choosing to live bold, sacrificial and generous lives for the sake of the
gospel.

Prioritizing the kingdom includes keeping the next generation in mind.
Like the early church, we must be willing to boldly lay a foundation and
sacrificially and generously give with a desire to see Christ’s Kingdom and
glory cover the earth.


CAMPAIGN UPDATE

Where We’re At

We have finalized pledges for the campaign and are excited for what is to come! We are currently in the early phases of saving up to build. Based on how quickly and consistently the pledged amounts come in, we can develop an accurate timeline for construction. In the meantime, we are meeting with General Contractors to clarify any questions and will soon meet with Engineers and City Planners.

How To Start Giving

Our ability to break ground on these projects depends on what available funding we have. If you made a pledge, you should have received an email with your total pledge amount and instructions on where to start giving. To set-up your Foundations Campaign giving, click the button below. You will be able to choose “recurring donations” and select how often you would like to give.

Over the course of the campaign, you will receive quarterly emails with progress reports on where you are at with your giving and how close you are to reaching your pledge goal.

Prayer Requests

Please pray for the General Contractor, Engineers, City Planners, and Architects to finalize the North West addition plan. Pray for the original bid amounts to stay on budget and that we would have the funds to be able to start these projects in the fall.
