How Much ???

If you have read my blog for any time at all, you know that I love my church. We are starting our ninth year at Fellowship Church in Grapevine.

About 2 years ago we started the process of building a camp in east Texas, and a new campus in Downtown Ft. Worth that will open up next month. At the same time, we also opened up a campus in Miami, Florida.

We started a fundraising campaign and many people pledged to give over and above their tithe to help finance these projects. Our pastor came to us in December and said that our church needed to raise an additional $5 million in cash during the month to help with these projects. $5 million dollars is a lot of money to raise in a month, especially during December when people are focused on Christmas. Our church committed 5% of the money to be given to a church is Maceio, Brazil that we support.

I personally did not think there was any way that we were going to get close to the $5 million mark. Last night at church, our pastor announced that we had raised $6.8 million in cash in December. It is so exciting to be a part of a church where God is alive and working. I can’t wait to see all the lives He will change with the camp and the new church.

I feel so blessed to be a part of such an awesome church.
