Last night we had our informational gathering meeting. We had a very nice dinner in our social hall and then went over to our sanctuary for our program. Mrs. Tara Sherrod lead us in 2 songs and then Pastor Frank lead in prayer. Pastor Frank talk about why this debt retirement program is so important to our church. We presently owe 1.6 million dollars on our building and we are looking to God to help pay this building off. As we enter this debt retirement campaign we are looking for "not equal gifts but equal sacrifice".
Lonnie Howard shared his Stewardship Testimony and then Tom Melizoni from Generis talked to us about the campaign and what has happened in other campaigns when people pray for God to use them. Tom gave each person a Giving Map for First Baptist Church for people to use to decide what their pledges would be. Copies of these Giving Map will be in the back of the sanctuary if you didn't get one. After Tom talked to us, we spent a time in prayer, praying for God's leadership in our giving to our debt retirement program.
