We’re privileged to support local ministries, to encourage the spread of the Gospel around the world, and to use our building as a hub for transformation. And we’re able to do these things because of your giving.
KTS Church Offering
Igor Federovytch, director of the Church Planting program at Kyiv Theological Seminary, also pastors Resurrection Church in a very needy Kyiv neighborhood. They have felt the burden to provide food to the families struggling with unemployment in the pandemic. Many evangelical churches in Ukraine are also working to meet the desperate needs of their communities, despite their own poverty. These churches are working to meet the very real needs in their communities, as they draw them into relationships of intentional grace and Christ-like mercy.
The Global Outreach Team has unanimously approved a request for a special Thanksgiving offering with a goal of $5,000 to be shared with these churches pastored by KTS graduates or students. These funds will provide food and other vital resources through local churches to their communities. You can simply indicate “KTS” on your gift to Faith Church.
In 2018, the congregation overwhelmingly approved a capital campaign to support the Ambassadors Project – facility updates that welcome people and connect them to our vision and God’s mission. We collected pledges of just over $2.54 million for the project. Although we haven’t been able to use our facility as much as we’d like during COVID, the result of work on the facility has been beautiful, functional, and impactful. Many of you contributed to the campaign, and many have already completed their pledges. We want to say, “Thank you!”
But every capital campaign experiences some “drop-off” – people move away or their financial circumstances change. We are projecting a shortfall of about $100,000 (or 4% of our campaign total), which is in line with what most capital campaigns experience. If you are able, can you provide an extra gift to help cover this shortfall? You can indicate “Ambassadors” on your gifts to Faith Church. Thank you.
