Gathered Giving Update, January 2024
Creek Family - Reflecting on our journey over the past year, we took a dedicated month last October to envision the future of Richland Creek Community Church. We introduced a mission statement that encapsulates our purpose: to glorify God in worship, grow as disciples of Jesus, and go on mission with the gospel.
One key focus has been addressing our church's financial obligations, particularly our $5.7 million debt. Since October, our community has rallied together through the Gathered Giving initiative, contributing over $350,000 towards this cause. The combined effort of various contributions has significantly reduced our debt to $5.3 million, demonstrating the impact of our shared commitment.
We celebrate these milestones not merely as financial achievements but as manifestations of the Lord's work within our community. Today, we encourage you to watch the accompanying video for a more in-depth explanation of our plan, the progress made, and the ongoing vision for Richland Creek. As we express gratitude for the Lord's blessings, we invite you to join us in prayer, thanking Him for His guidance and provision. Let's continue to uplift our church, its ministries, and each other in prayer as we navigate this exciting chapter together.
