Dear LifeConnection Church Family,

As we gratefully consider the Lord’s work among us, I want to invite you to prayerfully consider how you will join to take part in our annual Hope for the City offering. The Hope for the City offering is our annual Christmas offering. We utilize the Hope for the City to fund strategic initiatives at home and international ministry through the International Mission Board. Through this offering we are working to fund ministry that will help people find hope in Jesus Christ.

We’ll use 100% of your contributions to fund the following projects.

  • Lottie Moon Christmas Offering for International Missions. One of the really cool things about being a part of our Southern Baptist network is we get to participate in the largest missions sending agency in the world. Together, with nearly 46,000 other churches, we provide for international missions. The International Mission Board (IMB) has nearly 4,000 missionaries worldwide, planting seeds of the gospel among the most desperate people in the most difficult parts of the world.
  • LifeConnection Mercy Ministry. The gospel of Jesus leads us to have a compassionate response toward those in need. At LifeConnection we do this through our Mercy Ministry which provides benevolent help for those with various needs and through our Mission Center ministry which houses our Food Pantry and Clothes Closet. Each month we serve 190 families and more than 700 individuals through the Mission Center ministry.
  • Shoring up our foundation. The foundation for our ministry as a church starts right here. As we head into 2019 we want to take the opportunity to financially prepare for another year of gospel ministry. We want to get a kickstart on providing for gospel ministry in 2019. This will help us provide a stable foundation for gospel ministry for us in our region and beyond—through our various ministry and missions efforts.

This Sunday, December 16, we will receive our Hope for the City offering in both of our morning worship gatherings. We’ll provide special giving envelopes and encouraging everyone to come prepared that morning. Will you help us reach our goal of $45,000?

If you’re going to be out of town on December 16, or if you’d like contribute online, you can do that starting this week. You can contribute online by simply clicking the “Giving” tab in the left sidebar, choosing the “Independence Congregation,” and then the “Hope for the City offering.”

Please pray about participating and then jump in with us. God has given us a great mission to take the gospel of Jesus to all nations and we’re blessed to join him in reaching our community for Christ and advancing the gospel around the world.

Have a great week and don’t forget to join us this Sunday as we continue in Jonah chapter 3.

For the City,
