The GRReat Offering


 

 

 

Paul Gibson, GR Regional Minister
Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

We are challenging all the Great Rivers Region churches to participate in a new regional offering—the GRReat Offering.  This year we are suggesting Sunday, September 23, 2018, as the target date for collection. 

All monies from the GRReat Offering will go to projects, ministries, and missionaries specifically in/related to the Great Rivers Region.

Below are a few examples of the projects/ministries that will benefit from the GRReat Offering:

  • Church Revitalization.  We are developing a plan to come alongside churches and help them evaluate their needs and then develop a plan to revitalize.  We currently have approximately 40 churches who could benefit from church revitalization.
  • Church Planting.  We need to be planting churches.  Statistics show that more people come to a relationship with Jesus Christ through new church plants than any other avenue.  As we have churches come to the end of their ministry, we need to be starting new ones.
  • Special needs and ministries that are waiting to happen.

It will take extra dollars to fund these projects/ministries and we don’t want to take away from the others we are currently funding. 

Download a GRReat Offering poster to display in your church and bulletin insert (front | back - separate files for quicker download and for printing on back of your paper) for use in Sunday services (feel free to make copies of the bulletin insert).  Please note that the poster has a place for you to enter your church’s monetary goal for the GRReat Offering.  We encourage you to set a goal and challenge your church to meet that goal. 

Should you need the GRR Offering Logo in a file to publish in your newsletter or on your web site(s), please download the format you need (right click on link and choose "save link as..."). For printing: JPG, PNG, TIF. For web site or presentation software resolution: 320 x 119 PNG or 320 x 117 JPG at "high" quality.

Also, we have two videos to help explain and promote the GRReat Offering that we will be emailing to each church. (right click on "download" of the video you want to save to your computer and choose "save link as..." (After saving the file look in your "downloads" folder for it.)

If your church doesn’t have an email address please let us know (1 - 217 - 726 - 7366) and we will send you the GRReat Offering videos on a DVD.

Please join us as we challenge the Great Rivers Region to seek God and then “Let It Flow”!

In His Service,
Paul Gibson
