For more than thirty years now, the God of all grace has been telling his story of redeeming mercy in and through you. We see the fruit of that work across Franklin and all around the world. But that story has just begun.
What if the most amazing chapters are yet to unfold? What if God is stirring something new and beautiful to deepen his work in us and extend his work through us? What will people say thirty years from now about what God is doing at Christ Community Church?
RISE & BUILD is a God-sized project and God-sized mission. Our goal is to raise as much as we possibly can over the next 3 years to address the identified areas of need, keep our past promises, and move forward as the Lord has directed. God is graciously allowing us to participate in what he is doing in and through Christ Community Church, and it’s going to take ALL OF US committing to prayer, sacrificial giving, and faithful obedience to the one through whom all things are accomplished.
HOW WE RESPOND TODAY WRITES THE WORDS TO THOSE ANSWERS TOMORROW.
Frequently Asked Questions
The ‘right amount’ is the amount that God places on your heart to sacrificially give. Your commitment is a response in worship. The Apostle Paul says in 2 Corinthians 9:6-7 that “Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously. Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.”
With the primary focus areas for improvement identified by the Strategic Planning Committee and Master Planning Team, we selected Matheny-Goldmon Architecture + Interiors for master planning and architectural design. Using the information gathered from pastors, staff, leaders, and the congregation from meetings, discussion groups, and surveys, the team created designs and plans that meet the needs and goals outlined, and best serve the mission of our church and individual ministry areas.
Evangelical churches typically raise around two to three times their annual giving in a financial campaign. After conducting a feasibility study with our congregation, consulting with our campaign advisors, and reviewing our full financial picture with projected planning, design, construction, and long-term costs, the Session has prayerfully considered and approved the goal. We believe that through radical generosity and sacrificial giving, we can move the vision forward.
The RISE & BUILD Commitment Card is where you can indicate what you plan to give over the three-year campaign period, with options for how and over what schedule you have prayerfully decided to contribute. This card is vital, informing us of what to expect and how to wisely plan expenditures. When the time comes to begin giving, a number of methods are available (giving online, by check, automatic checking withdrawal, etc.) with options for stocks and non-cash gifts as well. For specific questions about giving methods, please contact Don Davis in the Church Business Office at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Of course! Unforeseen circumstances in the future may cause you to want to increase or decrease your giving commitment. At any time during the commitment month period, you can review or change your pledge.

REFLECT – As you read and pray, reflect on what the Lord is saying to you. Talk you’re your family and friends and if you are married, talk to your spouse – discuss what the Holy Spirit is leading you toward.
