Help us to Finish Strong!

We are approaching the end of our first year of Starting Point Church! There is so much to celebrate that I could write for days about what we have seen God do! For example, this past Sunday we saw seven more people surrender the lives to Christ through baptism. (Pictures at bottom!) That brings the total number of people baptized to 80 people in nine months!! I feel so blessed to be a part of what God is doing at Starting Point Church!

However, we are not immune to the challenges of being a new church...especially financially. Typically, the first summer of a church is the toughest time financially in the church's life. We are currently expected to finish $40,000 behind our budget for this fiscal year(September-August). Through cuts this summer we have trimmed $10,000 off of the total number needed. However, that means we still need to raise $30,000 over the summer in order for us to FINISH STRONG our first year and be in a position to continue to make an impact in the Triangle for years to come.

Here is where WE NEED YOUR PRAYERS!

>This past Sunday we kicked off our "Finish Strong" Campaign. Our goal is not only to raise the $30,000 we need to meet budget, but to surpass that number in order to create a benevolence, local missions, & foreign missions fund for our church in 2011-2012.


There are three ways we would love for you to join with us!

1. Pray - Pray for God to provide the funds we need. When we have asked our prayer team & church to pray for God to provide for a need, HE has NEVER failed to provide above & beyond our expectations!
2. Give Regularly - If Starting Point Church is your home, we would love for you to begin regularly worshiping God through giving your tithes & offerings.
3. One Time Gift - We are asking all of our prayer team partners & church family to pray about giving a one time gift to help us finish strong. You can mail your contribution to:
