On Sunday, both City Life and First Baptist approved the union of the two congregations. It was so encouraging to learn not only that it passed but passed with overwhelming support from both congregations, with City Life - 100% and First Baptist – 85%! This is a clear sign of God’s favor and will.
As we await the union on June 12, we have a special opportunity to participate by giving generously and sacrificially to meet our goal of $200,000 by Sunday, June 5. These funds will be used to facilitate the purchase of the building and property, provide security cameras for our Kids Life space, and other related mission and equipment needs. Amazingly, we have a number of families who have challenged our church to give generously by offering a dollar-for-dollar match up to $100,000!
To date we have received $15,264 with a remaining goal of $85,000.
As elders, we encourage you as an individual and as a family to contemplate the need, examine your finances, pray, and give cheerfully (see 2 Corinthians 9:6-8). Please grab a RED envelope and submit your gift by Sunday, June 5. If you mail in your gift, please write “UNION” in the memo line and mail to:
City Life Church
200 N. Broadway

May God grant us great faith to seek his will, trust his promises, and respond obediently!
