Dear Christ Church Family,
What an amazing year it has been already as we have watched God work within our family of faith. There is so much that we have to be thankful for! Relationships are being transformed, lives are being healed, and we are seeing the Holy Spirit do a powerful work in many. We are excited about what God will continue to do in the months ahead.
Last year we were given an expanded vision and renewed purpose to reach those that God so desperately loves in Wichita and around the world. As part of this expanded vision, we announced that we were changing our name to Christ Church. Our new name serves to refocus our hearts and minds, and prepare us for our next chapter.
To fully prepare for this new chapter, we are inviting everyone to partner with us for our Expand the Kingdom Here campaign. The goal of this campaign will be for each of us to give generously to expand our ministry capacity as a church through debt retirement, facility remodels, enhanced media capabilities, and more. Your financial support as part of this campaign will be a great blessing to our church family and will prepare Christ Church to reach more people than ever before.
Expand the Kingdom Here will be a two-year giving campaign that will equip us as a church to launch into this new chapter of ministry in a powerful way. We will launch the official start of the campaign on April 9, 2017, with a special First Fruits offering. In the weeks ahead we will provide additional details and unfold the full vision of the campaign, and clarify questions you may have.
I am asking everyone to prayerfully consider how you will join us in this Expand the Kingdom Here campaign. I know that together we can make this a reality and prepare Christ Church for a powerful new season of ministry.
Giving and Serving Together,
Pastor Dennis Turner
