2018 has been a year of many changes and transitions, so it is easy to overlook the great things that God has done in our midst that would not have been possible without your faithful giving to CWC. I want tell you about a few of the things that your giving has allowed College Church to do in pursuit of its goal of making more and better disciples who transform the community and resource the Church. This year, we increased support to our Grant County Partners, continued to expand our partnership with Senda de Vida in Mexico and began discovering ministry opportunities in East Asia. Locally, we continued to partner with Frances Slocum Elementary school and saw more than 200 students participate in our various summer programs. These things and more were made possible all or in part thanks to your faithful and generous giving. As 2018 comes to an end, it is also important to begin to think about your own year-end giving. We ask that you keep College Church in mind as you prayerfully consider where you will direct your remaining gifts for 2018. You may remember that as of May 1 of this year, following the Local Church Conference, the General Fund and Outreach Funds were merged to become one unified budget. As of last week, November 18th, College Church’s general fund is still $128,044 behind budget. Should you feel led to direct all or some of your year-end giving to College Wesleyan Church, you may do so at any time up until Sunday, December 31st when the office will be open until 3pm to receive those gifts. You may also give online through the CWC website using the give link in the upper right of the web page. Should you have any problems giving online, please contact the church office and we will be more than happy to assist you. Also keep in mind, should you prefer to mail a check to College Church, your envelope must be postmarked no later than December 31st for your gift to be credited in 2018. Thank you again for your contributions so far this year. I look forward to seeing what God has in store for College Church in the future, which can only be accomplished through your continued generous and faithful giving.
