Be Rich!

t’s Christmas! And since this is a season of giving, we as a church

want to go above and beyond in our generosity to those in need.

The Apostle Paul taught Timothy to...

“Tell them to use their money to do good. They should be rich in good works and generous to those in need, always being ready to share with others.” (1 Timothy 6:18 NLT)

We are to use whatever we have, whether a lot or a little, to do good and give more. On Sunday, December 15th, we will be practicing to BE RICH as a church.

LCJ uses a minimum of 10% of its income every year for outreach and regular donations to our ministry partners. Jesus told us in Acts 1:8 that we are to share His good news locally, regionally, nationally, and globally. We have budgeted $35,000 to share Jesus with our world throughout 2014. BUT, imagine the impact we could make as a church if we gave our partners a massive jumpstart to their year.

That thought is the heart of our BE RICH Campaign, which is to raise all $35,000 (what we’ve budgeted to give away in 2014) on one day! We’re giddy just thinking about this!!! If you are like us, and we think you probably love to give too, then prayerfully plan how you will join with us to BE RICH.

We can easily reach our goal on Sunday, December 15th if we all give a little extra.

If you haven't begun giving yet, start on December 15.

If you haven't begun tithing (giving 10%) start on December 15.

If you already give regularly, give a little extra.

Here's one way that might help you determine what to give.

If you regularly give...

$20 a week.....give an extra $104 on Dec. 15th

$50 a week.....give an extra $260

$100 a week...give an extra $520

$250 a week...give an extra $1300

$500 a week...give an extra $2600

If you regularly give...

$500 a month.....give an extra $600 on Dec. 15th

$750 a month.....give an extra $900

$1000 a month...give an extra $1200

$1500 a month...give an extra $1800

$2000 a month...give an extra $2400
