Last Sunday here at Gaylord E-Free Church we showed the final instalment in our 5-part Vision Video series showing the vision of our church in the past, present and future. The last section of that video series took us on a visual review of our 3-year vision plan (you can view that video in yesterday's blog post). On that Sunday we also passed out a full-color brochure highlighting this vision that we believe that God has given to us in order to meet as many people as possible right where they are and help move them to where God wants them to be.
Along with that, we now have out Vision Tree full of apples and located in the back foyer outside the Gospel Center. Most of the tree is covered with green apples that indicate the many specific aspects of our 3-year vision plan and the cost associated with each particular element. The red apples indicate areas that have already been paid for and ave moved from being a dream to being a reality. As God lays it on your heart to give a financial gift to see a specific element(s) of our vision take place, simply do the following:
Physically remove the green apple which will reveal a red apple beneath (red shows that this aspect has been paid for).
Place a check in the box that is located on the table at the tree with the apple you picked, being sure that your gift ids clearly marked as to what item it is paying for. You may also give your gift through the church offering or by contacting the church office. Either way you give, please be sure to indicate what specific aspect of the vision plan you are giving the gift towards.
Because we don’t want to sacrifice present ministry, we do ask that all gifts toward our vision plan be above and beyond regular giving.
Together, we can saturate Otsego County with the Gospel of Jesus Christ and let that bleed over into all of northern Michigan!
