To Our Fellow Workers in the Lord:
No, this is not just another request asking for money. It is an invitation to participate with us in reaching the lost in central Ohio. We are a church planting that has experienced only limited growth largely due to our building. We have improved our building to meet our current needs, but it remains an impediment to spreading the gospel. It has become apparent that to complete our planting and successfully accomplish our goal of reaching the lost, we must construct a new building, continuing our evangelistic focus.
Now is the time! The area directly surrounding us is experiencing exceptional new home growth. One year ago we began sending Heart-to-Heart to the two closest mail routes, just over 1,000 homes. Today, those routes are nearly 1,500 homes. Thats 500 new homes, and the zoning people tell us 2004s growth will be even higher! We now have a tremendous opportunity to reach people at a very receptive time as they move into our area.
As a small congregation of 30-40 members, we have already accomplished the following goals in addition to meeting ongoing expenses and establishing a building savings account:
While doing this, we have continued our primary focus of evangelism through the following endeavors:
We are committed to the Lords work in Gahanna and are not asking the brotherhood to bear our burden for us, but to join with us in this new and exciting opportunity for outreach. To seize this tremendous opportunity, we need prayers and financial help from both congregations and individual members of the Lords church. It is our prayer that you will enthusiastically participate with us by praying and by making either a one-time or an ongoing financial commitment to help us complete these remaining items:
Please send your support for this work to the congregation at this address:
We look forward to hearing from you at (614) 890-4353, should you want to discuss your fellowship with us.
