At Christ Community, there are a handful of seasons each year where we want to come together as a church family to pray and give toward accomplishing specific purposes. One of those seasons each year is in the fall. Last year we prayed and gave toward a September remodel and our church is still benefiting today from the generosity and sacrifice of those who contributed. Thank you for that. This year, we want use our Fall Focus Offering to sew into an existing partnership that we have with Acts 29, a global church-planting network, and Klint & Mary Elizabeth Ware. (Click for more on why we do a Fall Focus Offering.)
If you aren't familiar w/ Acts 29, their vision is to be a network of churches that plants churches all over the world and Christ Community Church is a part of that network. If you'd like, you can watch this video to find out more about Acts 29.
As a part of the Acts 29 Church Planting Network, we give 10% of every dollar contributed to Christ Community specifically toward church planting. We love that we get to be a part of what God is doing in the city of Athens and around the world.
This is where Klint & Mary Elizabeth Ware come in. Before coming to Christ Community in August of 2015, the Wares lived in Flower Mound, TX where Klint served on staff at The Village Church. The Village is also a part of Acts 29. The Wares began to feel called by God to step away from their ministry role at The Village and pursue church planting. Klint & Mary Elizabeth are here at Christ Community to serve as a part of our community, learn, grow, and be further developed in order to plant a church. In order to make this opportunity possible, the Wares raised support from various churches, organizations, friends, and family. Much of what we give as a church toward church planting makes it possible for Klint and Mary Elizabeth to be here and for Klint to serve on staff at Christ Community.
- We believe that we have been called by God to make the real Jesus impossible to ignore in the city of Athens and beyond.
- We see in the pages of scripture that God's primary plan to reconcile the world to himself is for the church to point people to the person and work of Jesus Christ.
- We desperately want to be a part of that work.
For these reasons, we want our church to come together and raise $6800 in the month of October for our Fall Focus Offering. This will go toward church planting and to supporting the Wares financially.
