It has been an exciting year to see God working through Redwood this past year. Here’s a snapshot of some of the things that we got to be a part of:
Over 40 people began exploring a life of faith in our Starting Point classes. Over 40 people got baptized in their journey of following Jesus. Over 300 people stepped into community in small groups in order to grow in faith together. We’ve enhanced our youth and kids spaces in order to continue investing in the faith journey of the upcoming generations. We’ve seen some great moments of generosity flow through us as God expands our hearts to reach more people with the good news of God’s incredible love for us demonstrated through Jesus.
When we give, we get to participate in all the things God is doing in and through us as His church. We get to experience the blessing of living beyond ourselves in being part of something so much bigger than just us. We get to see God show up and meet us in our needs so we can continue to join in on all that He is doing in our world.
We want to give a huge thank you to everyone who has and is giving generously and sacrificially to help make all that we do as a church possible. Everything we do is made possible by the support of those who generously give their time, energy, and financial resources to Redwood. Our ongoing impact is unleashed by our collective generosity.
Each year when we set our annual budget, we anticipate year end giving to be stronger than the rest of the year in order to make our annual budget goals. Hitting our budget goals lets us accomplish what we set out to do. Exceeding them sets us up to have an even greater impact in the new year.
As we approach the end of 2017, we want to invite you to make a year end donation to help us end our year strong. For those of you who plan your giving at year end, you can do so through our online giving platform: Here or, if you would like to give by cash or cheque, you can do so during our final Sunday services on December 31st. For those of you who are newer to Redwood and have never given, this would be a great time for you to partner with us in what God is doing in and through our church by giving.
You can learn more about how to start giving on a regular basis by going online to redwoodpark.ca, picking up a Giving Brochure at the Info Desk in the foyer on Sunday or calling the church office.
