Wow, wow WOW! We just ended a meaningful two hours of being the Garden Church at our Theology Group and found this amazing surprise awaiting us it 9:05p.m.! Not only has the goal been reached….the cup is overflowing! $4,035!
$1,055 of which are monthly pledges! Thank you. Thank you! Hearts are overflowing with the gratitude at this abundance and communal effort. The Garden Church is humbled, blessed, and committed to using your resources for good. Celebrating the end of #GivingTuesday and our three weeks of crowdfunding with huge gratitude and virtual fireworks!
#GivingTuesday at the Garden Church
We are committed to feeding people…in mind, body, and spirit.
On this #GivingTuesday, will you join us in making a difference in the world as we re-imagine church and engage in innovative ways to bring more heaven, here on earth?
Dear Garden Church friends and family!
Part of re-imagining church is re-imagining our funding sources and methods. The way the world works is changing, and the funding for new expressions of church aren’t primarily coming from our institutions any more.
Instead, we have the opportunity to build a community of support made up of individuals who share our passion. We believe there are people all over who want to be part of doing something to make the world a better place—perhaps including you!
We need to raise $2,000 a month for the next year from our Cultivation Team. That’s 200 people giving $10 a month, or 100 giving $20, or 50 people giving $40—you get the idea. Give what amount is right for you, monthly for the next year, and be an essential part of the team that is re-imagining church and bringing more heaven here on earth. (If you’re wondering why the bar graph says more, that’s because razzo counts one-time and monthly gifts as the same. We are recieving and appreciating both! And our overarching goal is $2,000 in monthly pledges).
We are so incredibly grateful for the stories and pledges that have been rolling in from across the world over the past few weeks as people are joining the team.
Today is the last day of our three-week crowd-funding goal. Will you join with others from across the globe to ensure the Garden Church has the support it needs to grow and thrive serve in this start-up season?
With deep gratitude and joy for all that is and for all that is to come,
