WHAT IS HEART FOR THE HOUSE?Heart for the house is an offering that we receive each year that goes beyond our tithes and offerings. Every year this opportunity marks a significant and miraculous step forward in the life our church! When we give to Heart for the House, we give as an act of gratitude for what God has done this year and as an act of expectancy for what God will do in the year ahead. God has done amazing things through this house and his work is made possible through the gifts of those who call it home.
BELIEVING FOR MORE IN 2021God has given our team great vision for the upcoming year. As you give to heart for the house this year, your gifts will be used to support the following focus areas next year:
Building Strong Healthy FamiliesOur goal is to expand staffing and ministry to your family. It is also our heart to equip each household to experience ministry within your family.
Increasing our Presence in the Sodo CommunityWe are commissioned by Christ to reach the world but that commission begins by starting locally. We will continue expanding our impact and outreach opportunities by concentrating first on the neighborhoods within one mile of our downtown Orlando campus in the SoDo District. We also want each person from CCO to also be equipped to then reach their own neighborhood with good news!
Making and Equipping Disciples for Christ.Our desire is for every person to better understand who Christ is and to become a fully devoted follower of Him.This year, we are believing that God will continue to expand our territory, and specifically, increase the number of people that are investing into and building our church. It’s an important step for the life and health of our church, and if you are interested in being part of it, we suggest considering the following two things:
PRAY: Prayerfully consider the opportunity to give in a new, above-and-beyond way. Our hope is that people will continue to realize that we all have a part to play in this! Our collective sacrifice matters in ways we can never realize. What we sow today will reap a harvest for generations to come.PLAN: True generosity and stewardship is often NOT spontaneous. It’s planned, it’s calculated, it’s budgeted, and it’s INTENTIONAL. Planning to be generous and to lead the way financially is a faith step, without a doubt! And our prayer is that God will continue to encourage you on this journey every step of the way.Please consider returning your offering on or before Christmas Sunday, December 20, 2020.
