Forward Together – 2018 Pledge Campaign

We have big plans for 2018 and are proposing a very challenging budget to reach our goals. This budget is an act of faith that families who have not participated in giving will take the plunge with us this year and that those who have will increase their giving to match our grand vision.

We need your financial support in 2018 to…

  • Develop and pay for a long-term facility plan that includes a step-by-step guide to growing in and beyond our current space in a way that is sustainable and healthy.
  • Improvements to our education spaces, lobby, and communications ministries to reach people beyond our congregation in the neighborhood.
  • Support increases in our support for local and global missions including our friends at Broken Arrow Elementary School, Micah Ministry, and Shawnee Community Services.
  • Increase hourly support for pastoral care and administration for our growing ministries.

Please prayerfully consider beginning or increasing your support so we can reach these and other goals. 

Below are links to additional resources to assist you with your prayerful consideration of giving.
