    40 Day Giving Challenge

    TEXT "GIVE" TO 708-295-3589

    Jesus said, “It is more blessed to give than to receive,” because it puts our focus on others, our dependence on God, and frees us from the “relentless pull” of materialism and greed. The 40 Day Giving Challenge is where we declare: “I recognize that all I have belongs to you. I want to give something up to give something away”

    The Challenge is made up of 3 commitments:

    1. Give $1/Day: give something up, like a morning donut or soda at lunch. Get creative and make the commitment to save $1 per day. Goal = $40.
    2. Give 1hr/Week: give an hour a week of volunteer time to help your family, friends or church. Goal: 6 hours.
    3. Give 10%: give the first 10% of your income back to God as an offering, and say, "I want to give you the first and the best.” Goal: 10% of income.

    40 Days from February 21, bring your offering to church on Easter. Give it by faith and see what God does through your generosity!

    Giving isn’t rooted in guilt or self-righteousness. It’s rooted in our response to God’s lavish grace. If you haven't started giving yet, or you want to be a part of a bigger movement of giving, join the 40 Day Giving Challenge! Begin a lifestyle of generosity by consistently giving back to God, and see how He blesses your life, relationships, and finances.

    We want to join you on this journey of generosity. Text GIVE to 708-295-3589 to sign up for the 40 Day Giving Challenge, and get soul workouts, encouragement, and resources throughout the 40 days via text message.
