BUILD TO REACH

Our Build to Reach offering gives C3 Church Ryde the ability to reach and build beyond ourselves.

This offering is above our weekly giving (tithing) and focuses on extending the Kingdom work of the Lord. It includes making room for our growing church, local missions and the support of church plants both here and overseas, as well as paying off the bank loan for our church building in Ryde. These ministries, and the paying down of our building debt, are at the core of reaching our local and global community and leaving a permanent Christian heritage for future generations to reach people.

The following information lists all the activities that Build to Reach funds, but as always, the greatest importance is the love that is expressed in your giving. “For what counts is faith expressing itself through love” (Galatians 5:6) – it is the love of God that motivates us to give.

HOW TO GET INVOLVED

1. Prayerfully consider the amount of giving that is appropriate for you

This should be your first step in becoming involved in partnering with Build to Reach. Pray for both faith and wisdom in making your decision.
“Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.” – 2 Corinthians 9:7 (NLT)

2. Make your commitment to the Build to Reach Centre

You will have an opportunity to complete a commitment card during the services. Alternatively, you can fill out a digital commitment card online.

3. Consider how you will fulfil your commitment

Here are some ways you may want to give:
Make a regular weekly or monthly contribution over the year, or one lump sum before June 2021. Regular giving can be easier to manage, is rewarding and quickly builds up over time.

Paul suggested to the early church:
“… Each of you should put aside some amount of money in relation to what you have earned and save it for this offering. Don’t wait until I get there and try to do it all once.” – 1 Corinthians 16:1-2 (NLT)

4. Regularly pray into your commitment

Place your statement of commitment in a place where you and your family can see it and pray regularly for it.
