The Greenville community is growing rapidly. We anticipate that hundreds of new families will soon live within a 2-mile radius of our ministry campus. Based on demographic studies, the average family needs MORE attention, MORE help, MORE support, MORE encouragement, and MORE love than previous generations have. Our community is hurting.
We believe that Immanuel Lutheran Ministries is uniquely positioned to help our growing congregation and community see that, in Jesus, we are already “MORE than conquerors through him who loved us” (Romans 8:37), and that our God will daily do “immeasurably MORE than all we could ever ask or imagine” (Ephesians 3:20).
To do so, our ministry must continue to Gather, Grow, and Go even MORE so than we have in the past. MORE ministry requires MORE resources. In a ministry the size of Immanuel, gathering enough resources to make a noticeable difference is a team effort.
We are all at different stages of life, responsible for meeting different needs, and recipients of different incomes. Yet we all have one thing in common. We are all children of God through our Lord’s abundant generosity in Christ Jesus.
Considering God’s generosity to us, we are asking each member of the Immanuel family to seek the Lord’s guidance in considering how you might use your regular offerings to help provide the MORE our community so desperately needs, knowing that “your generosity will result in thanksgiving to God” (2 Corinthians 9:11).
Please note that the “Gifted for More” ministry plan is not something different than our regular offerings to the Lord. Two years ago, Immanuel initiated what we call the One Fund. All financial gifts to the church go to the same one fund that supports all aspects of Immanuel’s ministry.
This commitment form is asking for your entire planned financial contribution to Immanuel’s ministry for the next two years. Your personal planning allows our church to plan accurately and responsibility as we carry out ministry in Jesus’ name.
