Serving Seattle Offering – December 2013
Over the past two years, God has been moving at Ballard Church. During this time, our numbers have steadily increased and God has touched numerous lives. Ballard Church has helped hundreds of people come to know Christ, over 50 people follow Jesus through Baptism, our kids ministry has grown from six to 60 AND over 70 people have become Ballard Church members!
Although we are seeing tons of momentum, Ballard Church has entered into a transitional season. As most of you know, Pastor Paul Diaz has stepped down as the Lead Pastor at Ballard Church. As we trust God through this season at Ballard Church, we need your help to ensure Ballard Church’s momentum and financial stability can.
As some of you recall, the church received grants and loans to get off the ground. We are proud to say, that at this time Ballard Church is financially self-sustaining. In other words, we can pay our bills. Although that is a HUGE blessing, we know that by partnering with you to raise additional funding for some specific needs and additions at Ballard Church, we can continue to expand God’s Kingdom and grow our community!
The tax-deductible Serving Seattle offering focuses on three areas that we’d like to grow in our ministry in 2014:
1. Ballard Church Leadership – BC is run by many dedicated volunteers, as we continue to grow, our need for a ministry staff has expanded.
2. Funland Modifications – Funland is an outreach to our community, in the future we want to ensure this facility remains a fun, attractional and safe place for our kids!
3. Local & Global Service – Our hope is to continue to expand in our outreach not only to our local community, but to missions abroad.
We humbly ask you to begin praying now, for what God would have YOU give (over and above your regular tithe/offering) to this special offering. If you have any additional questions please do not hesitate to contact Ballard Church at firstname.lastname@example.org
