5/4/52 Capital Campaign 2017/2018… As we are quickly approaching the end of Local Church Conference Year 2017/2018 (April 30th) we want to encourage you to fulfill your commitment to the 5/4/52 Capital Campaign if you have not already done so. When we entered into the conference year, we had a debt of $111,639.00. As of today our debt is $68,638.00! We give God PRAISE for allowing us to make this much progress in just one year and we THANK the members and friends of East Gold Street Wesleyan Church who were faithful in keeping their commitments. Remember, we will renew our annual commitments to the four year capital campaign (ending in Local Church Conference Year 2020/2021) during the last two weeks of April.
Lamb of God Wesleyan Church (Santa Clara, Cuba)… Pastor Jose’ Ariel Rodriguez will be preaching at East Gold sometime in April or May. During his sermon he will bring an update about Lamb of God Wesleyan Church (the church we sponsor) where he pastors. They just finished their building project and as most do it went over budget; not because of unnecessary spending, but because of the constantly changing cost of building materials in Cuba. They need to raise about $2,000.00 to pay their debt in full. I am setting a goal of $2,000.00 for a “love offering” which we will collect the Sunday he is with us. Here is the good news! We already have $460.00 raised! Wouldn’t it be a great blessing to the Lamb of God congregation if we could send Pastor Jose’ back with the full $2,000.00 needed to relieve them of their debt? Please prayerfully consider how you can give to this strong, Kingdom Building Church ministering in the middle of communist Cuba!
Baby Bottle Blessings Money due… by Sunday, March 25.
Be a Prayer Warrior… Prayer Warriors are the most frightening, powerful, demon-chasing, world moving beings on earth. Prayer Warriors are positioned by God to stand in faith for their families and churches and cities. Prayer is stronger than kings and mightier than armies. Prayer is the most powerful force on earth.
