Hey C3 Church family!
I just wanted to send a note and let you know how blessed I am to be your pastor. Martha and I are so grateful to serve a church family that has a heart for hurting people and is willing to go “above and beyond” to make a difference for God. We are closing the chapter on the IMAGINE vision and we want to say THANK YOU! Because of your faithfulness and generosity we are in a position for the vision God has for us this year and beyond.
Earlier this year I shared with you that our vision for the next two years is IMPACT. I feel the Lord leading us to take a HUGE step forward as we expand our outreach to Raleigh and South Africa.
Acts 1:8 says, “But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you. And you will be my witnesses, telling people about me everywhere—in Jerusalem, throughout Judea, in Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”
And that’s what we are doing with IMPACT! If you would like to listen to the Vision Sunday message you can go to www.c3church.com/resources/series
This past weekend we had our IMPACT Commitment Weekend and hundreds of families turned in their commitment cards to pray and give above and beyond their tithe to support this vision. If you haven’t turned your card in you can do so this weekend or bring it by the church anytime during the week.
This weekend is our IMPACT Celebration Weekend where we ask the church family to bring your first offering to help us take a huge step forward. There are some urgent needs especially in reference to Mganduzweni, South Africa. They desperately need us to build a well to provide clean water, food for the children, and other needs as we start a new church in this village of 170,000 people. I would ask that you pray about what God would have you to give.
2 Corinthians 9:7 says “Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.”
Martha and I love you so much! And I can’t wait to see what God does in us and through us! Together we can IMPACT the world!
Pastor Matt and Martha
