Okay Connexus, out of the park again on Revolutionary Love. Even the blizzard last weekend didn't keep people from being generous!
Your compassion is already being felt around
the world. We've got another chance to make a huge impact this weekend – showing Jesus' love in tangible ways! Here are this week's assignments:
Revolutionary Assignment 3
Due Date: Orillia – December 14th
return a special "over and above" offering in the special Guatemala
envelope available on campus to contribute to the costs of the health
clinic. The total cost of the clinic is $9250 CDN.
family can also go shopping this week to purchase jeans, socks and
underwear. Sizes from toddler through to men/women's small are
needed. Waistbands under 31" for men and women's size 0-4 are best for
teens and adults.
Revolutionary Assignment 4
Due Date: Barrie December 14th (Orillia December 21st)
Expand the Reach of Connexus in 2009. Return a special "over and above" offering to help reach the 234,288 people who live in our region that don't attend church. The offering will
- help Connexus clear a modest operating deficit from our first year of operations,
- purchase some equipment we had on loan during our first year,
- make an accelerated payment to a North Point ministries loan
- cover expansion expenses in the first quarter of 2009 as we begin to open a third campus in Muskoka (more on that soon!)
As you plan to give, think about how you can help expand the reach of Connexus to make an impact on others the way God has made an impact on you!
Thanks SO much for the privilege of being your leader. You are one incredible community!
“What good is it, dear
brothers and sisters, if you say you have faith but don’t show it by
your actions? Can that kind of faith save anyone? Suppose you see a
brother or sister who has no food or clothing, and you say, “Good-bye
and have a good day; stay warm and eat well”—but then you don’t give
that person any food or clothing. What good does that do? So you see,
faith by itself isn’t enough. Unless it produces good deeds, it is dead
and useless.” James 2:14-17
