I try not to fill up your mailbox or email with a lot of unnecessary information, but occasionally I feel the need to do so. You have heard me often say that we are a family church, teaching people, to reach their world and for 28 years that has been Joy Christian Center’s mission.
Joy Christian Center would not be where we are today, nor have the reputation we do without you, the people of Joy! Many people around central Minnesota have been blessed, not because of one, but because of everyone.
On October 20th, I invited everyone connected to Joy Christian Center to participate in our Joy to the World offering. The larger goal of Joy to the World is to intentionally share Christ, serve others and give of our resources. Our heart is to simply take Joy to the World and be a blessing in whatever way we can. Joy to the World 2020 is living proof that “everyone can do more than someone”. “WE” is always greater than “me”.
I am confident that the blessings of people, wisdom, experience and resources here at Joy Christian Center are not for us alone. I believe that God wants us to be a resource for other churches that are like ours. There are pastors of smaller churches that have vision and potential but are needing a little bit of help. I want us to be the ones to help provide what they need.
I don’t have the space to go into all the details, but a reminder that 100% of the Joy to the World 2020 offering will go toward:
- Reaching our community
- Blessing other churches and pastors
- Be ready to meet a need, as soon as we see it
How do we do this? For the very low price of $49.95. On November 24, we are encouraging everyone to come prepared to be a part of the Joy to the World offering. I know that for some $49.95 is a stretch and others can do more than that. I ask that you each prayerfully consider being a part. After all, everyone really can do more than someone!
It is a joy to serve God with you in this great mission and harvest in central Minnesota, as we reach our community for Christ and advance the Gospel around the world.
Serving Him with Joy,
You can give now. It’s safe, secure and simple to use.
Acts 8:5,8 (NKJV)
