Devoted background

How will we get there?

The centerpiece of our Journey is our Capital Campaign - Challenge 200. Something as historic as a 200th birthday calls for significant sacrifice. As part of our Bicentennial Celebration we are focusing on setting goals around the “200” theme. Our goals encompass so much more than money:

• We begin with a Campaign Goal to raise $200,000 more than ever (one million dollars)!

• We are praying for over 200 families to engage in the Campaign.

• We are seeking to engage 200 people in a focused prayer initiative.

• We are challenging 200 people to take the next step in “The Journey”.

• Finally, we’re asking every Journey group to engage in local ministry and a global mission, resulting in at least 200 members moving beyond the walls of Canaan and building intentional bridges of Hope to our neighbors and the nations.

 

What Should We Do?

Discover!

Join us in the Devoted journey to discover what God wants to do in and through us.  Make plans now to participate in our special Sunday Morning Series, one of our Vision Gatherings, and Prayer Events from October 8 – November 5.

 

“Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, 21 to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen.”  Ephesians 3:20-21

Pray!

Over the next few weeks we are asking every family to make Devoted – Challenge 200 part of your prayer time by asking God:  - What could I reasonably give to God through Challenge 200?  - What could I sacrifice and give to God through Challenge 200? – What could I step out in faith and believe God for to give to Him through Challenge 200? 

 

“The effective fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much.” James 5:16

 

Invest!

Be prepared as a family to make a three-year Devoted Commitment above your normal Tithe on November 5, 2017 during one of our two worship services. 

 

“So let each one give as he purposes in his heart, not grudgingly or of necessity: for God loves a cheerful giver.”  2 Corinthians 9: 7
