QWhat are the correct procedures for giving donations?
AMarsh 2.0 donations...
QWhy is the Marsh 2.0 Committee excited and confident about this campaign?
AWe strongly believe God is in this. He has led us down this path.
Marsh is central to our vision of being a family focused on growing with God and reaching out to the community around us.
God has now given us an opportunity to partner with Him, faithfully follow His leading and build for life both now and for generations to come.
Our congregational meetings and votes have been overwhelmingly positive and a sign of God’s direction.
Our consultant is confident we can do this.
While some may ask if we can do this when we can’t meet our budget, most capital campaigns raise 2 to 5 times the annual operating budget. Our campaign goal of 2.5 million is on the low end of that range.
QWhat’s the process for asking for money? Do I have to give it all at once?
AWe are following a biblical model of face-to-face, heart-to-heart conversations in peoples’ homes or wherever is convenient for them. We want to build relationships, share our excitement and answer any questions.
We strongly believe God is behind this and has already provided all the money we need for this project. Our role is for us to corporately and individually align our hearts with His will and act in faith accordingly. It is a wonderful opportunity to see Him work and to grow in faith.
With that in mind, we are going to ask everyone to spend time with God, giving thanks for His blessings and asking Him what He wants us to give from those things He has already given us or will give us—and then give in faith accordingly.
While we need as much money as possible up front, you can give over three calendar years or four tax years. Not only that, you can give in many different ways that we would love to share personally with you.
QI am ready to give now! What do I need to do?
AThank you! We are excited, and we are glad you are as well.
We have many people we are trying to connect with on a personal basis. Please be patient with us. Still, we would love to meet with you. Just reach out to any of our team and we can start the process.
In the meantime, keep in prayer for us and for what God is asking you to give.
