Dear Metro East Ministry Family,
I pray you had a great start to your weeks. I wanted to remind everyone that this week the plan is to meet by House Churches. Every week we take a time to remember Jesus during our worship services by taking the elements. He sacrificed himself so we could live, be forgiven & help see so many others come to Christ and complete their faith.
Rise Up by Metro East Teen
I want to call the ministry as a whole to sacrifice between now and the end of June. The First century Christian's sacrificed financially/ physically to start the church (Acts 4:32-37;) and I am calling us to sacrifice as well financially (Special Mission's) and physically (putting other's needs ahead of our own (Luke 9:23;) because it's the right and God blesses that. Sacrifice is a daily determination to put the needs of others before our own. We need to rally as a Metro East Ministry Family and sacrifice together for Special Missions. Some have given while still other's have not given. The call is for everyone to give 8 times your weekly Offering or 8x's our weekly budget ($7,000.00) = $56,000.00. So far we have collected over $34,000.00. Please continue to pray for one another, find ways to sacrifice and make our goal of $56,000.00. Our special contribution will go first to meet the operating needs of the Region, the remainder will go towards the Asia Pacific Region (Philippines) and then to help support start up churches in the Pacific Southwest (Oceania).
Here is what we have given for Special Mission's since Aug. 2009.:
2015 = $56,001.00
2014 = $46,000.00
2013 = $53,500.00
2012 = $58,450.00
2011 = $57,200.00
2010 = $58,750.00
2009 = $61,100.00
Let's come together like Acts 4:32-37; and sacrifice until the end of June.
