We are off to an outstanding start with the Vision 2020 Mission Appeal. Three-year commitments to date total over $200,000, and at the time of publication, we were very close to meeting our First Phase $90,000 goal.
Thank you very much to all who have submitted Commitment cards to make the First Phase such a wonderful success! Making a commitment provides you with a guide to faithful sharing of your treasures but also gives the church council a perspective on anticipated gifts as they prioritize and initiate Vision 2020 Mission Appeal projects.
The Vision 2020 Mission Appeal will be identified by Phases and will continue for three years through 2021 until the $500,000 commitments goal is achieved. First Phase gifts will allow for replacement of the oldest section of roof that is critically damaged and replace the wheelchair lift in the Fellowship Hall area. Additionally, 10% of funds will be allocated to global/local mission outside of Christus Victor.
The Second Phase will begin in early 2019. The Second Phase will focus on Repositioning for Growth. Funds will support an effective music ministry transition and provide seed money for two new positions, Operations Manager and Equipping Ministry Coordinator.
If you have not had a chance to make a commitment, Commitment cards are still available in the pew pockets or one can be mailed to you upon request. Blue envelopes are the official envelope of the Vision 2020 Mission Appeal. Envelopes can also be found in the pew pockets. If you would like to make a weekly or monthly contribution, we have prepared packets of envelopes that can be found at the Welcome Center in the Narthex.
Vision 2020 Mission Appeal gifts can be made easily through direct deposit, e-giving, or mailed checks but must be identified as Vision 2020 to ensure appropriate designation.
The Vision 2020 Mission Appeal Leadership Team is committed to keeping the Congregation informed of ongoing progress of the mission appeal and each new initiative. Watch for monthly updates in the Communicator and on the CVLC Facebook page as well as here on our website.
