It is no secret that the last two years have been a whirlwind for so many of us. During this time, our leadership has sought to follow God’s leading in navigating each challenge we’ve faced. Throughout it all, God has been faithful and has sustained our church. Yet, we believe God wants his church to thrive, not just survive. As we look to the future and prepare for 2022, we are prayerfully considering what it means for our church to thrive. One piece is involvement. We want every single person to be plugged into what God is doing in our church. The second big piece is finances. After facing a season of uncertainty, we want to be financially sustainable so that we can be more generous and more freely follow God’s leading.
God has graciously opened a door. Though RiverTree Massillon currently has a building loan of just over $140K, we’ve been given a chance to fast forward and begin 2022 debt free! Through a unique opportunity given to RiverTree, we now stand with just $50,000 of debt to pay. Yes, you understood that correctly! If we are able to raise $50K by the end of 2021, we get to eliminate ALL of our debt. This immediately improves our financial situation, and saves us thousands in interest over the next several years of loan payments. Simply put, it allows us to be better stewards of God’s resources. The goal for this Fast Forward Challenge is to raise this $50K, removing our debt, which will enable us to be more generous and more involved in God’s work around us.
We are asking our RiverTree Massillon family to help us press fast forward through three faith-filled steps:
