We have introduced our year-end-giving campaign, “Grateful Heart.” Between now and December 31, we respectfully ask for your participation in the Grateful Heart offering.
We use 100% of the funds donated to this offering to fund important causes that directly benefit others. This year, the “Grateful Heart” offering will fund “Help Build Hope.” On the weekend of May 4-6, we will build the walls to two Habitat for Humanity houses in our parking lot. We need to raise $14,000 to make this ministry happen. Here is a photo of one of this year’s completed homes on it’s site at 225 Reeb Avenue:
We will also use proceeds from this offering to fund scholarships for children and teens in need of financial assistance to attend events such as Christ in Youth (CIY) and Round Lake Christian Camp. These students are carefully vetted, but our intent is that no deserving student be kept from attending these life changing programs because of lack of finances.
The third thing we hope to do is to provide a special gift to Africa Development Mission. This dynamic ministry, led by Denford and Shingi Chizanga, has operated out of rented facilities for years. We have assisted in the purchase of ground, and now it is time to put a mission house and ministry center on that ground. We would love to appropriately give to this ministry that means much to many of us at Madison Christian Church.
There are ABSOLUTELY NO administrative costs with the “Grateful Heart” offering. We promise that 100% of your contribution goes directly to the causes we have outlined. Please prayerfully consider giving to this offering with a “Grateful Heart.”
