"Let your roots grow down into Jesus, and let your lives be built on Jesus. Then your faith will grow strong in the truth you were taught, and you will overflow with thankfulness."
Rooted & Rising is a two-year Generosity Initiative of
Grace Lutheran Church. Rooted & Rising aims to help us return to solid
financial footing and increase our ministry impact. This is a pivotal moment to
invest in our mission and vision as we live out our ways of life as a church
We have a faith passion to raise the necessary funds to
thrive in mission and ministry. We must be better stewards of our aging
facility, invest in programs designed to connect our local neighborhoods together,
create a strong discipleship community, and continue to step out into the wider
world by faithfully serving locally and globally.
We believe we’re all on one mission: God’s heart. Our
hands. grace in ACTION. And, in order to be a radically inclusive,
multicultural community who serve and lead together with the love of Jesus, we
need a unified budget to meet all our needs. Over the course of the two-year generosity
initiative, every gift given to Grace will go to a unified fund, the Grace
Ministry fund, which will provide ample resources for all of our ministries at
Grace and all of our outreach.
We are asking each person and family at Grace to rise up and trust where God is leading us. This includes each of us joining together to pray enthusiastically, engage deeply, commit fully and give generously. If everyone does 100% of what God asks them to do, we will accomplish all that God wants us to accomplish.
Secondary Goal: $3.9M over 2 yearsWe are inviting all who call Grace home to join us in a vision that will allow us to deepen the ways in which we worship, connect and serve. Our generosity initiative this fall, Rooted & Rising, aims to help us return to solid financial footing and increase our ministry impact. Join us as we embark on this pivotal moment to invest in our mission and vision as we live out our ways of life as church together.
