All 4 One

Yesterday our church took the final offering for our "All 4 One" campaign. Early this year we agreed that we needed to buy two lots that surrounded our current property. We set a goal to raise 215 thousand dollars to purchase the property rather than mortgage it.

Over the last three years the ministry has grown and we have had to change from the traditional schedule of Sunday school followed by the Worship service. We have made the transition in steps; first, we added an early Worship service. This fall we changed the schedule once again, and went to two worship services with Sunday schools operating simultaneously. We have found the axiom to be true, "The greatest cause of stress is change!"

Last night we had a Thanksgiving Celebration Supper. We knew that we needed to raise 65 thousand with this last offering to reach the goal. After we listened to testimonies of thanks for God's goodness I announced the final total -- $215, 537. 36!

To God be the glory!

  1. I prayed specifically for our church to reach our goal in the All 4 One campaign this past Sunday, and even asked the Lord to allow the amount to surpass the goal by a little as a sign. God answered that request and I give Him praise for showing His love for me, but more importantly, His love for our church family! Two Bible verses that come to mind are: 1 John 5: 14-15; Psalm 146:6.
