There really isn’t anything I’ve done in life without the help of others.
Yup, its true!
There is nothing I’ve really done on my own.
It’s aways with people. Friends, family, and people who want to help.
And, I’m proud of that. I don’t need to be a Lone Ranger, a trailblazer and a guy who does it all be himself!
The same can be said for the launch of Thrive Church.
As I sit and think about how many people have already helped, already partnered, already prayed…
It really is! To have the support of my wife, my kids, my parents, my friends, other leaders, other pastors…wow, it’s just humbling!
That being said…Thrive Church won’t be able to get off the ground without more help and I would like to ask you to be involved. There are so many ways you can help us and I would be honored If you would consider one of these five.
5 Ways to Help Launch Thrive Church
…Ask God for His favor and blessing on Thrive Church. Ask God to give us wisdom on how to be a church that people far from God find irresistible. Ask God to send us 15 more people for our Launch team. Ask God to protect us from what Satan is already doing to stop Thrive from getting off the ground. Pray for our fundraising goal of $50,000 by December 1st and $15,000 by September 15th. Pray for wisdom for our leadership team. Pray for our small groups and our community. Pray for our kids, our families and our marriages.
Would you just pray?
2. Spread the Word
…Would you post/email our launch website? (www.thrivelaunch.cc)
…If you have friends and family who are searching for a church in Central MI, would you recommend Thrive?
Would you spread the word?
3. Encourage Us
…You probably didn’t see that coming, did you? But, launching a Church is hard! Don’t think for a second that it’s easy. Satan does not want any other churches up and going.
…From time to time, would you write encouraging posts or tex us and remind us that you’re praying for us?
Would you encourage us?
4. Give Financially
…Every single gift helps and counts. No matter the size.
…It helps us accomplish our mission of helping people find and follow Jesus!
…So, would you help us raise $50,000 by December 1st? and
$15,000 by September 15th?
…You can send a special gift to help us launch or I need to raise my ongoing salary. I haven’t started receiving a salary yet from Thrive Church and I will soon. But, I am praying for people to support me monthly. Would you give $25, $50, $100 or $250 a month?
…Every gift is tax deductible and you can send checks to: Thrive Church, PO Box 1408, Mt Pleasant, MI 48804 or you can give online here. Thank you so much!
