“Framing OUR Mission”
This year marked the end of the "Framing OUR Mission" capital fund program. The contributions to the program emphasized the funding of our expanded mission in Casa Grande, as well as, needed projects in Arizona City.
Thanks to all the members and winter residents for participating. In three years, over $70,000 was given to support the internship program, expansion efforts, and facility improvements and repairs on our two campuses.
Casa Grande Land Fund
We have had $5,000 deposited to establish our property fund for the purchase of land for a permanent Casa Grande ministry site. There is no timetable set for when land may be purchased, yet your gifts will help direct the future ministry of our congregation. Contributions can be made through regular gifts, one time donations, or through personal estate distributions.
"What You Have First Given Us" Stewardship Program
Merciful Father, we offer with joy and thanksgiving what you have first given us – our selves, our time, and our possessions, signs of your gracious love. Receive them for the sake of him who offered himself for us, Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
(Lutheran Book of Worship Offering Prayer)
Throughout the year we prayerfully reflect on how we view God's gifts, how these gifts are utilized, and how we trust in God's abundant blessings. We challenge ourselves to continue to grow in giving for our growing ministry.
