3 WAYS TO GIVE
Consider ways to give the best cash gift possible. Perhaps you’ve recently received a bonus at work, an inheritance, or some other form of financial abundance and blessing. Rather than simply holding onto the asset, consider investing in God’s work now through Beyond. Involve your whole family in setting a specific amount to give.
You can pledge at any time during the Beyond project. You can choose to give weekly, monthly, quarterly or with an annual gift. Giving spread over time allows you to make a steady contribution that accrues with time, resulting in a larger gift than you may have thought possible. The target date for all pledges to be fulfilled is May 2013.
The gift of an asset that you own can have a bigger impact than you might imagine and often provides a favorable tax advantage for you. Consider participating in Beyond through the gift of appreciated stock, bonds, cars, land, homes or other personal valuables. Remember, your gift will have far-reaching impact, both here and now as well as in eternity. Please contact Terisa Clark at the Church business office to discuss the potential benefits of giving an asset.
HOW TO MAKE YOUR COMMITMENT
Our God "is able to do far exceedingly above all which we ask or think, according to the power which works in us."
- Ephesians 3:20
Each of us has the privilege of being a part of the Beyond project. Blessings follow obedience, so the first step in participating is seeking God’s guidance in your personal commitment. God hears His children’s prayers, and He will guide you as you seek His will for you and your family.
- Begin today by praying about the amount the Lord would have you give. Be open to His direction. God has often done the biggest things through the least likely people!
- Work through the Devotional Guide with your family, as you pray together for wisdom concerning your family’s commitment.
- Communicate your commitment to us by email at email@example.com or mail to 7008 Salem Ave, Lubbock, TX 79424
As you begin to seek God, be open to the possibility that He will allow you to step out in faith and make a commitment that you never would have thought possible. Look beyond your current provision and circumstances, and believe that God will allow you to be a vessel of blessing for such a time as this by making the largest gift you have ever made – an amount beyond what you would ever dream you alone could do. It could be that God wants to use your obedience and faith to bless many people in the decades to come, but you will not know unless you ask!
