Pickup the two handouts from church (either on a Sunday morning or we've left a bin outside the church doors for your convenience). The one handout is an information card with your BEYOND envelope attached. The second handout is your "bottle of mortgage" filled with the church's shredded mortgage - we want our mortgage to look like this and be as valuable as this when it is paid off...shredded paper that is worthless, because debt is worthless to God because it can't be used for his ministry and mission.
We challenge you to take time understanding this opportunity and praying for God to move you and our church BEYOND our limits, BEYOND our expectations, and BEYOND ourselves in our faith and generosity.
Then, return your gift which goes above and beyond your normal offering using the BEYOND envelope as you bring it with you to a Sunday morning service, or you can mail your check (write Beyond in the notes section) to the church (Messiah Lutheran Church, 3302. S. College Road, Wilmington NC 28412).
Our goal is 100% participation.
WHO WE ARE:
OUR VISION – What began over 54 years ago as a small
group of people gathering in a home, has become a large, weekly gathering, with
environments for all families. Our goal is to be a church that churched and
unchurched people love to attend.
OUR MISSION – We are leading people into a growing
relationship with Jesus Christ. We want people to experience that our church
wants something FOR them, not something FROM them… that a relationship with
Jesus can make their life better, and make them better at life.
