SEEK . SAVE . SEARCH
“A man's heart plans his way, but the Lord determines his steps.”
We want to be a church that is actively listening for God’s voice and ready to obey when he speaks. The Proverbs 16:9 Project is an active effort to prepare our hearts and resources in anticipation of whatever God might have in store for RCC next, whether it’s a new building, renting from another church or staying at Eshleman. We think it is wise to do our part to prepare for the future, but it is our heart’s desire simply to go where God leads and do what God wills. With that in mind, here are 3 Next Steps we are taking together through the end of the year.
For us, seeking is all about praying. In this season we have set a goal to prayer walk the borders of Lomita as a church community. This is something everybody can do & we want to help as many of you who are willing to step out in action to participate. You can sign up for a specific route at the Proverbs 16:9 table on Sundays or by emailing email@example.com.
Our first financial goal is to increase our church savings account to $70k. We believe this is prudent no matter what we do moving forward. We hope to reach this goal by the end of the year. You can give towards this goal in three ways:
1. Sign up for our fundraiser, the 2nd Annual Corn Hole Cup on November 17! $25 per person entry.
2. Give at church by writing “Proverbs 16:9” on your tithe envelope.
3. Give online by using the button below and selecting Proverbs 16:9 from the drop down.
After the New Year we hope to recruit an official team that is exploring the many options that we will have. We could stay here at Eshelman, share a space with another church or even find a building of our own. We also want to find the best space for our HQ & offices, and maybe open up a coffee house for the community.
But before we get too ahead of ourselves, we want to hear your hearts, questions, and ideas.
So we have created a short survey that we would love for all of you to fill out honestly and prayerfully. We really value all of your input, and believe that if we are asking God for wisdom, He will faithfully guide our steps.
