Archives For start up costs

At Two Cities Church our mission is to lead people into a growing relationship with Jesus Christ and our vision is to create a church that unchurched people love to attend.

Thank you to everyone who has participated in our campaign!

If you have capacity to expand our together results by way of large or small financial gifts, please do. TOGETHER our efforts are multiplied.

A few months ago we sent out a letter to friends and family to raise part of our $100,000 start up costs. This amount is specific and will enable us to purchase everything we need to have regular services. TOGETHER we raised $5,000, above and beyond our regular giving, for our Big Vision campaign. We are very grateful for every penny and it will be well spent. That was a great start! Now we only have $95,000 to go.

As we prepare to celebrate Easter and finish out this school year, I’m inviting you to help build this church.TOGETHER we are building a blessing to our community and world. We are building a church that we can invite our unchurched, dechurched, and overchurched friends to attend. They will love it so much, they’ll turn around and invite someone else.

Ways to become a TOGETHER partner:

To give us a little more incentive, we have reached a partnership with Growing Healthy Churches and they willmatch up to $5,000 in this campaign. So if we raise at least $5,000 TOGETHER, they will give us $5,000 more. Let me show you how this works:

$1,000 = $1,000
$2,500 = $2,500
$5,000 = $10,000
$7,500 = $12,500

Let’s do this TOGETHER! Let’s give, let’s ask our friends and families to give. Let’s give until it’s difficult, until it hurts. Currently we have $4,710 a month that is consistently coming in. There has been an additional $2,000 pledged per month, but we haven’t seen that yet. With 16 consistent giving partners, that means the average monthly gift is almost $295. TOGETHER we can give up something in order to build something greater.

TOGETHER we can introduce thousands to Jesus in our lifetime. Who’s in?

A couple of months ago I posted a blog to raise part of our $100,000 start up costs. This amount is specific and will enable us to purchase everything we need to have regular services.

Together we raised $5,000 above and beyond our regular giving.

I am extremely grateful for every one of you who gives consistently and sacrificially. Thank you for choosing to partner with Two Cities Church in this very tangible way. This was a great start in raising our start up capital!

Just this morning I was at our college guy’s small group, which I affectionately refer to as the #630Crew because it’s so early in the morning, and we were talking about the biblical principle of stewardship.

Nothing is mine. Nothing is yours. Everything we have… clothes, food, money, cars, relationships, time, health… it’s all God’s and we’re managing His resources. If we are managing well, we’re managing it for His purposes. What an incredible blessing and big responsibility. Let’s continue to steward well what He has given us.

If you didn’t get a chance to participate in this campaign you can do that through eGive. Let’s keep the mission of Jesus Christ at the forefront of our minds. Let’s keep going, until every last part of our Big Vision is done.

In Him,
Micah Foster

P.S. We’ve just reached a partnership with Growing Healthy Churches that will enable us to receive some matching funds, more on that later.
