giving tuesday: multiply future building
Giving Tuesday is today and Center Church has an ambitious goal of raising $25,000.00 to help us lead MULTIPLYING efforts in our city. Today at 8 AM, Facebook is Matching all donations, dollar for dollar, up to $20,000. That means your $10 can really be $20, and your $100 can really be $200. We would love for you to partner with Center Church and be a part of God’s multiplying empowerment in Richmond.
Recent reports from Pew have indicated a rapid increase in people identifying as non-religious, with roughly 26% of the population identifying as such. That’s a staggering number that must be addressed by the church. Center Church is in a position to do just that by doing some industry disruptions, as we like to call it.
This is where you come in, we believe God has called us to invest heavily in Church Planting and Discipleship. We believe that we need more missional churches and more missional people doing God’s work in our city if we’re going to change the tide. We have an audacious dream that Center Church will empower pastors on every block, in every business, in every house in Richmond, Virginia. We will achieve this goal through church planting and disciple-making, you know – actually doing what Jesus instructed us to do.
Multiplying is not just a Center Church dream, it’s the dream of our Creator, God. Every dime you give towards multiplication, from now to the end of the year, will be used to proclaim the Good News of a radical God inviting people into the deep waters of formation and the renewing life of church planting.
breakdown of end of year giving
40% General Operations: Center Church is fully off of appropriations from the denomination, we sustain ourselves from the Generosity of the community. This percentage will help us extend our reach in the city.
40% Church Planting: We’re going all-in on Church Planting in Richmond, Virginia. We believe God is calling us to develop leaders and to send them. This percentage will be used to plant a church in the next 2-years.
20% Blue Sky Fund: We believe it’s important to tithe back to local nonprofits. The Blue Sky Fund takes children from some of Richmond’s most under-served and under-resourced neighborhoods to enjoy time in nature. It’s here in nature that they will learn about science and stewardship of resources. The goal of Blue Sky Fund is to partner with RPS and help elevate SOL test scores.
Thank you for your generosity – EVERY DOLLAR MATTERS and is a part of God’s vision of empowerment.
