242 BENEVOLENCE CAMPAIGN
August & September 2019
During our “242” teaching series, we are revisiting our founding verses in Acts 2:42-47 and exploring how the Spirit is leading us to improvise life together today. Part of this life together involves radical generosity toward those in need, so during the months of August and September, we are praying for 242 people to give $242 to our benevolence fund. This fund is used in beautiful ways to care for those in need both within and outside our church community, and we are excited to continue doing so in transformative ways. To contribute $242 to this campaign, text 242 BEN to 704-445-5242 or visit our giving page and select “Benevolence” from the drop-down menu.
