Our yearend offering has been met and matched; thank you to everyone that has participated! Please continue to pray for God’s continued provision and leading as we head into an exciting new year!! May God richly bless you, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
Our Springbrook Acts 1:8 vision is to build passionate disciples working together to reach our community, region and world for Christ, and our budget each year enables us to effectively achieve that vision. You can visit our Springbrook Vision & Mission page or our Missions Ministry page for more information, but we have some exciting opportunities as we move into 2022!
The allocations below for our year-end offering this year show how it will support just a few of the opportunities we have in specific areas of ministry:
|Jerusalem||Judea||Samaria||EndS of Earth|
|Local Ministries &
Jerusalem: Staffing & Facilities
In conjunction with our staff restructuring prior to Covid, we need to invest in our staff to meet the growing needs of our ministry, as well as investing in facilities and equipment.
A portion of our yearend offering will go directly to supplement our facilities and staff budget in 2022.
Judea: Local Ministry & church planting
We had the opportunity this past year to come alongside Jessy & Marilu Padilla as they stepped out in faith to plant Iglesia Emanuel in Kenosha WI. Jessy and Marilu were with us this past October to provide an exciting update on this new work, but as we move into 2022 we are praying to increase our support for local church planting as well as the local ministries we partner with in our community.
We have existing support for local ministries in our budget but would like to increase our presence and effectiveness in this specific area with funds from our yearend offering.
Samaria: Converge MidAmerica
Springbrook is a member of Converge MidAmerica (CMA), an affiliation of 242 churches across 8 states with a vision of starting and strengthening churches to reach their communities for Christ. In just the past 10 years, CMA has started over 89 brand new churches just in our district alone! 40% of our churches are culturally or ethnically diverse, and we have over 55,000 in attendance each Sunday!
Our year end offering will enable us to ensure we are able to meet our budgeted commitment to regional and domestic missions moving forward.
Ends of the Earth: Timothy Initiative
For the last several years, we have supported a significant portion of our missions efforts through special offerings. As we move into 2022, we want to make a long-term commitment to support TTI through our budget.
Much of the work TTI accomplishes contains internet sensitive and confidential information, so please stop by the missions table in the hallway for more information about the Church in Every Village initiative.
Data for specific parts of the world is being collected to create maps to inform a strategy that will focus efforts to plant a church in every village where a church is needed, and our budget in 2022 will include a commitment to plant 100 of those churches over 2 years!
Be sure to visit our missions page for routine updates, and feel free to contact any member of our missions team at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you for you commitment and prayerful support of the work God is doing in and through our local Body of Christ at Springbrook!
