Building for the Future First Baptist Church of Polk City April 27, 2009 Issue 2 ___________________________________________________________ A Letter from your Steering Team Leader Dear Church Family, I hope by now you have heard or are already involved in the great things that are happening at First Baptist Church of Polk City. We had a day of prayer where all of us could bring up our prayer needs and have our fellow brothers and sisters in Christ pray for each other. We are continuing to pray for those needs as well as the Building for the Future Program. You should have received a brochure about the Building for the Future Campaign and our first newsletter from the Pastor. If you did not receive one, please contact the church office at 984-1384. To build our new building we are going to need to give sacrificially. You may be asking yourself, what is sacrificial giving? When we speak of people giving sacrificially, we may assume that the person performing such an act is giving all “Offer your they have with nothing much left. The secret of sacrificial giving is the motive, not the amount. Remember that our whole Building for the Future campaign is bodies as about doing God’s will. So each one of us needs to pray and let God guide them living in what their gift should be. sacrifices Your Steering Team takes our slogan “Not Equal Gifts, But Equal Sacrifice” holy and serious, so join us in praying that God’s will be done and lives will be saved for pleasing to Christ. God…” As I close I would like to quote our Stewardship Department Director of Florida Rom. 12:1 Baptist Convention, Clarence E. Hackett, “When we become spiritually convinced of the importance and joy of witnessing our commitments to God before His people, the question of whether we believe in commitments at all become irrelevant. We make a commitment every time we make an application for electric service or a telephone, write a check, use a credit card, or buy anything on credit. So we really do believe in making commitments, and we practice it all the time.” I am just asking you give God the same level of commitments you give these things and I am sure First Baptist Church of Polk City will be blessed by Him like we have never seen before. Finally, I would like you to know who your Steering Team is and if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask any one of us.
