Game Changer Giving Video
A couple years ago, CrossPoint went through some big transitions. Part of that included some significant financial challenges. By God’s grace, by the end of the summer, we will have eliminated about 40% of our debt. While we are grateful for the land sales that enabled us to do this, we realize that our contributions continue to be short by over $25,000 per month.
We know that the downturn in the oil economy is part of what causes this. However, we also realize that there are a number of people who LOVE CrossPoint, but have not yet entered into regular giving. CrossPoint has been a Game Changer in the lives of so many people. Just last Sunday, we heard from a man who said that if you would have told him 6 months ago that he would be excited about church, he would have laughed at you. Well, guess what he is excited about!
This is all because of Jesus. So many people have experienced CrossPoint as a Game Changer in their lives. Because of this, we are inviting you to be a game changer for others. It is often after we have received help through our toughest times that we realize, “Wow, so many pieces came together to help me! Not only the help, counsel, support, and care...but even things like the facilities to meet, and the air conditioning that allows us to meet there!” We are asking that you help provide this for others - be a Game Changer for the next marriage that needs healing, the next addict that needs freedom, the next person who needs to be liberated from the tyranny of the busyness, debt, and stress of daily life.
Here are two steps:
1) Plan for Prayer
Plan for Prayer - Anyone who has been around CrossPoint for a while knows that we are not “the church that talks about money all the time.” People tend to feel guilt and weirdness around money conversations. But remember, there is no place for shame and condemnation here. As your family considers taking the next step, start by planning 10 minutes in your day to pray. Receive grace and remember that no matter what, you are fully loved, respected, and cared for by Jesus and his people.
2) Game Changer Giving
a) Ongoing Giving - The Bible describes giving as regular (ongoing), sacrificial, and cheerful. If everyone at CrossPoint gives in this way, we’ll be more than provided for! Do you need to reach out for help to with personal budget? Email firstname.lastname@example.org and we can connect you with someone. Download our CrossPoint Mobile app, or Click the Donate Now Button below to set up recurring giving.
Game Changer Campaign - In order to be poised to be Game Changers in our community, we are raising $300,000 in 30 days. Really?!?! YES! One drop of water may not seem like much, but when a bunch of them come together, all of Houston gets flooded. That reality applies to giving as well. We are asking you and your family to prayerfully consider giving a one time gift above and beyond your regular giving, to add a drop in the bucket, to help flood Houston with change. We can do this! Download our CrossPoint Mobile app to give, or Click the Donate Now Button below and select “Game Changer Campaign” in the drop down menu.
We do not sit on the sidelines. By Jesus’ power, we are Game Changers!
