On Sunday, May 5th, we will be receiving a Faith Offering. This special offering has been designated to fund our 2019 Neighborhood Block Party! You may remember our inaugural Block Party last August, held on our beautiful church grounds. The vision for this outreach remains unchanged: to love on the people surrounding our church home, with no strings attached.
We pulled out all the stops, and filled our acreage with bounce houses, pony rides, face painting, games, giveaways, and LOTS OF FOOD! Everything was free for all who attended, and we saw over 700 children and adults flood our campus with smiles on their faces as they came and went.
It was one of our highlight events of the entire year, as we had 120+ volunteers from EF who served in a myriad of ways, coming together as a TEAM to accomplish a DREAM. The saying couldn’t be more true, “Teamwork makes the dream work.” Because of the generosity of people like you, the designated Faith Offering last year brought in $10,000 - which funded the entire Block Party!
As we begin to prepare for our 2nd Neighborhood Block Party in August 2019, we ask you to begin to pray about how God would have you sow into this amazing opportunity. This event is not earmarked within our church budget; we simply have faith in a BIG GOD to do BIG THINGS through us as a body. It is a complete step of faith, and we are believing for even greater this year! A greater volunteer team, a greater crowd to show up, and greater opportunities to share the love of Jesus in a tangible way.
Thank you in advance for your prayerful consideration of our May 5th Faith Offering. Let’s each give our best and REACH together to see the supernatural hand of God provide the means for us to REACH into our neighborhood as we partner with the Holy Spirit.
