Special Fifth Sunday Request
Posted by Aaron Cozort
GBN has recently been blessed on several levels. First, we have located and purchased a building in Olive Branch, Mississippi that not only meets the current needs of the organization but also provides room for growth into the future. Due to the recession the cost of the bank-owned building was significantly below the appraised value. As a result, this building will reduce our expenses into the future.
Secondly, we have been blessed tremendously by an anonymous donor. The donor has agreed to match all contributions of $500 or more to our building fund through the end of 2012. This match is capped at $150,000 in total, which if met would bring us very close to the total cost of the new building.
Thirdly, the month of July includes five Sundays. Many congregations of the Lord's church utilize their 5th Sunday contribution to help meet special needs that are over and above the typical 4-week month.
As a result of these events, we are asking congregations to consider utilizing their 5th Sunday contributions in the month of July to help pay for the new GBN building. We have made a flyer which is downloadable from the GBN website for congregations to use to help promote their 5th Sunday contributions that will be used for this purpose.
As a supporter you can also use the flyer (on the bottom of this page) to help educate the leadership of your congregation about GBN. We also have a comprehensive document with lots of specific details available for the asking.
If the July 5th Sunday contribution has already been designated by your congregation, we have the opportunity of another 5th Sunday in September and December of this year, as well. Please consider the GBN building fund in your plans for 2012.
