WHAT IS THE WELLSPRING CHRISTMAS OFFERING?
The Wellspring Christmas Offering is a special opportunity to accelerate the mission of God in our church, our city, and the world in 2023. This is not a needs based offering, but is vision based. It is not to meet budget, but instead allows us to pursue greater missional opportunity in the coming year beyond our annual budget constraints. This is a great opportunity for you to grow in your faith through sacrificial giving, and participate in the Kingdom dreams God invites us into in 2023.
This offering will serve future mission through the lens of our core values:
REVIVE: Alpha and 24/7 Prayer to see unity and revival in the city.
RELATE: Benevolence & serving refugees in NYC
RENEW: Local & Global mission partners
We invite you to pray and ask God what He is leading you to contribute beyond your regular tithes, and in generosity give your best gift. Let's end the year, and start out 2023 by being generous as our God is generous.
The Wellspring Christmas Offering launches Sunday, November 20th and runs through Sunday, January 22nd.
WHY GIVE IN A SPECIAL OFFERING?
We believe that Biblical stewardship starts with the obedience in giving a tithe (tithe meaning 10%), but should grow towards radical generosity – giving offerings above and beyond the tithe. As we give, we do so cheerfully (2 Corinthians 9:7) and regularly (I Corinthians 16:2). Yet, we are also called to give sacrificially (Mark 12:41-44). The Wellspring Christmas Offering is a time to give in both a radically generous and sacrificial way above your regular tithes and offerings. This is the time of the year where, in faith, we bring our best gift out of worship, recognizing God has given us more than enough to be able to contribute in some way.
HOW MUCH SHOULD I GIVE?
There is no goal dollar amount on the Christmas Offering – this is intentional. This offering is not because we are behind on budget for 2022, but instead will position our church to make greater impact on our community, city, and world in 2023. It will go directly towards accelerating the mission of God as a church and with our mission partners.
We invite you to simply pray and ask God, “What do you want me to give?” and respond with obedience and faith. As we encourage church-wide participation, the issue is not equal giving in dollar amounts, but equal sacrificial obedience.
WHEN SHOULD I GIVE?
To enable you the time to respond in obedience and faith, the Wellspring Christmas Offering will run throughout the entire month of December and end on Sunday, January 22nd, 2023. However, if you would like your offering to be considered in your 2022 tax-deductible giving statement, the church must receive it by December 31st, 2022. You can give your gifts at separate times over the course of the month, or all at once.
