Rooted: Generosity Initiative

Events+Uncategorized // November 18, 2018 //

Each year during December we do a Generosity Initiative. This year we are calling this initiative Rooted. Rooted is a generosity initiative where we ask those who call Restoration Church home to go above and beyond their regular giving to bless our city, and cities around the world, in a very special way.
This initiative helps fund our efforts in our local schools, local organizations, and our For The City service projects. Currently, our church is partnered with the following local schools and organizations: Mercy for America’s Children, Dream Center, Wake Forest Elementary School, Wake Forest High School, Fellowship of Christian Athletes, and Converting Hearts.
Additionally, we are proud partners of a domestic church plant in Charlottesville, Virginia, Center Church, and a partner of the North American Mission Board.
Lastly, this initiative provides the means for us to continue to partner with our current international partners. We are currently partnered with the International Mission Board and mission efforts in Kuala Lumpur and London.
Our primary goal this year is $20,000. However, the monetary goal is secondary to who we become by being fully rooted in Christ Jesus by being completely surrendered to Him.
This year we are coming together as a church family to give our generous gifts on December 9th. You are welcome to give at any point during December. However, we will set aside a very special time to receive these gifts during our gathering on Sunday, December 9th.

What are we asking from you:

Pray: Pray the Lord will do “immeasurably more than we can comprehend or imagine.” Pray that He would do as much in us as He will do through us. Pray that we would be rooted in Christ and that he would be preeminent is every area of our lives.
Commit: We need 100 percent participation from our faith family. We are asking you to lock arms with us and keep your “yes” on the table.

Give: We are asking you to give sacrificially. Ask God what a sacrificial gift looks like for you, and take whatever bold steps are required to see it through.
