INTRODUCTION

AS WE START OUR SECOND DECADE TOGETHER AS PASTOR AND CHURCH, I CAN HONESTLY SAY I’VE NEVER BEEN MORE EXCITED. GOD IS AT WORK IN AND THROUGH MISSION HILL, AND SO MANY OF YOU ARE GETTING IN ON WHAT HE IS DOING.

We have been walking through a season of cultural conflict, as well as a worldwide pandemic, and yet we are enjoying the sweetest spirit of unity I can remember. Signs of health are evident at Mission Hill. For example, because of the financial faithfulness of many of our members, we are seeing record giving to our General Budget Fund. Thank you for your faithfulness, and praise God from whom ALL blessings flow. However, even in this time of generous giving, we can walk around the Mission Hill campuses and see much-needed updates that are not able to be accomplished through this general fund.

That’s why we’re introducing the FOR capital stewardship campaign. Through the sacrificial and generous giving of our church family, we will be able to renovate our central campus physically, thereby re-positioning us to utilize this location as a ministry and mission hub for generations to come. In addition to a new worship center space, a large gathering area, and grand entry, we look forward to addressing other parking and capital need projects on all three campuses. And here’s the best part – we’re committing to give 10% of everything raised through the FOR campaign to missions for the next three years. (We will do this instead of asking you to give to our annual Unified Missions Fund.)

In the next several weeks you will learn more about our capital projects and the expectation of our FOR campaign, but for now, let me remind you what we are doing this FOR:

This is FOR you,
This is FOR our city,
This is FOR the nations,
This is FOR His Kingdom
This is FOR the glory of God.

Here’s what I need you to do. Make plans to attend one of the upcoming Vision Gatherings on Sunday, October 24th. The purpose of these meetings is to share information, answer questions, and to encourage you to make this a priority in your daily prayers. Please know that your participation in a Vision Gathering is very important, and that no commitments will be taken at these meetings.

FOR Jesus,

Pastor Paul
