EACH ONE MUST GIVE AS HE HAS DECIDED IN HIS HEART, NOT RELUCTANTLY OR UNDER COMPULSION, FOR GOD LOVES A CHEERFUL GIVER.
2 CORINTHIANS 9:7
One Fund Initiative
You may have been part of church campaigns in the past where you were asked to give a second gift “above and beyond” your usual gifts to complete special projects. At HNW these have been used to make new buildings and ministries possible. Normally, you gave that gift to the “Building Fund” and you also continued to give to the “General Fund.” This type of giving is potentially confusing to people who either don’t have a baseline for their “usual giving” or who aren’t able to really celebrate the total giving at HNW in one single number. We believe we’re all on ONE MISSION—to passionately share the message of Jesus Christ and lead people to follow Him.
The Overflow Initiative will last two years. In those two years, every gift given to HNW will go to the Overflow Initiative—to help us Overflow for Our Mission, Our Community, and Our World.
We’ve included a sample commitment card so you can see how a “one fund initiative” works. Please take the time to fill this out, but don’t worry: You’ll get a shiny new one to submit on Commitment Sunday, March 4.
