FIVE STONES FAMILY VOTE: This Sunday, November 23rd Five Stones will be voting on utilizing the financial tool of a loan up to $2.5 million to relocate and expand our ministry to our Community Campus. The amount of the loan will be dependent upon pledges and funds collected from pledges (the more we all rally and give the less we will borrow). Please note, in order to be a part of the Vote you must be a Five Stones Partner.
GENEROSITY INITIATIVE – BOLD: Five Stones is extending our current generosity initiative, which is a challenge to the church to PRAY, GIVE, INVITE AND SERVE BOLDLY as we live a lifestyle of generosity. The Elders, Finance Team and Staff invite you to join them in pledging financially to be a part of relocating and expanding the Five Stones ministry to our community campus. The pledges will be collected November 23rd
through December 21st.
Current BOLD participants: Please pray towards fulfilling your current pledge, accelerating your giving and/or increasing your pledge amount an additional 3 years (thru the end of 2017). Fill out and turn in a new BOLD pledge card noting if your intentions change beyond your current pledge.
Potential BOLD participants: Please pray towards how God would impress upon you / your family to pledge and give generously over the next 3 years (thru end of 2017). Fill out and turn in a BOLD pledge card noting your intentions as it pertains to your pledge.
ENGAGE CULTURE: THANKSGIVING IMPACT – Go to the Cureton Harris Teeter and let them know at the checkout line you want to give to the Five Stones Thanksgiving. They will add $35 to your bill and provide us with all the sides and a pie for a family at the outreach this Thanksgiving. Last day to give at Harris Teeter is THIS SUNDAY. You can also give online 24/7 at www.fivestoneschurch.com or at the Engage Culture kiosk on Sunday.
Don’t forget to bring your non-perishable food items to stock our Thanksgiving Food Pantry THIS SUNDAY. Drop off your bags in the trailer at the main entrance as you come in to church.
WHERE IN THE WORLD DO I GO?: We have an awesome Team of folks that show up each Sunday to put signs out in order to show first time guests where Five Stones meets on campus and how to get around the campus and building. Would you consider joining this Team to help set up OR take down these signs every other week? That would be awesome. Let us know by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org
THIS WEEK’S MEMORY VERSE: For this reason, because I have heard of your faith in the Lord Jesus and your love toward all the saints, I do not cease to give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers, Ephesians 1:15-16
