Greatest Gift Offering 2016

The Bible makes it quite clear that God is more than generous.  He gives us His peace, joy and love to experience in our own lives.  He proved his generosity ultimately through his Son.  Look at what it says in the book of John.  

For God so loved the world that He gave us His Son.
— John 3.16

We believe that because of what Christ did for us, we too should be generous.  We too should want to make a difference in the lives of others.  This month, we are giving people the opportunity through the end of 2016 to be generous and impact others through The Greatest Gift Offering.  

What is the GGO?  It's focused giving that will help us impact children and families through 2017.  How?

One, your giving will help us serve families in need locally.  We have numerous opportunities to serve families and serve the local schools again this coming year.  Your giving will help us literally impact hundreds of children through the schools, local events and our growing kids ministry at TPC.  We want to be able to respond and serve the kids and families of our community.    

Two, your giving will help feed hungry children in the barrios of Alajuelita, Costa Rica.  Our hope is to be able to feed 200 children through your giving. In addition, we are heading back to Costa Rica with a missions team in June of 2017.  Your year end giving will also help us build a home for a family that is struggling and caught in poverty.

Lastly, your giving will help us take the necessary step as a church towards financial independence in 2017.  In the first year of our existence, the majority of giving has come from outside of the church.  That's normal!  But now that we are into year two, it's our turn.  It's our turn to partner and to own the responsibility of helping Turning Point thrive and make an impact.  

Will you join us in this opportunity?  If you've not yet taken a step of generosity through giving to Turning Point, we believe this is a great starting point for you!  If you already give, would you be willing to step up to the challenge and give in addition to what you already faithfully give?  

This we know!  God made a significant difference in our lives through the generosity of giving us His Son!  You too will  be a part of making a significant difference in the life of a child through your generosity!     

Come on Turning Point, let's step up big time!!!

When To Give:  You can give any time during the month of November and December for the Greatest Gift Offering.  You can give during the Sunday service, on Christmas Eve or online here.

How To Give:  Simply mark your giving envelope or your online giving with the words, 'The Greatest Gift Offering' or 'GGO'.  

Thank You in advance for your generosity!!!
