Thank you for being a part of the Next Steps Giving Challenge.
Our Next Steps Giving Challenge is all about helping you move towards generosity by identifying which step you need to take, and sign the pledge to take it.
The first step you may want to take is to move from observing to investing. Maybe you’ve been coming to The Orchard for a while now, and you are ready to take the step from just being a casual observer to an active investor in ministry. This is taking the step of giving for the very first time.
The next step is to move from cautious to committed. We understand that giving can be scary, especially when the budget is tight and the bills are due. You give, but only as you feel you can. Our challenge here is for you to pick an amount, and start giving it first, before anything else. Whether its weekly or monthly, this step is taking the step to become a regular, committed giver.
The final step in the challenge is to move from regular to generous. We are so thankful for all of the regular givers we have here in our church. If not for you, we couldn’t do what we do to reach the unconvinced, the unconnected, and the unfinished. But if we’re being honest, it can be easy for us to reach the step of being a regular, consistent giver, and never go any farther. And often when that happens our regular giving becomes just another ritual, a box for us to check off. Our challenge in this step is for you to become a generous, joyful giver. Giving not because you should, but because you want. Giving beyond what is required, we can step into generosity.
At The Orchard, we really do want something FOR you, not just something FROM you. That’s true in this challenge as well. We fully believe that we can never out give God and that when we take a step in giving, His generosity to us always comes back in ways that we never expect.
To prove that, we are willing to put money where our mouth is. If you go to the website and sign up to take this challenge, at the end of 90 days, if you regret the step you’ve taken, we’ll give you your money back. That’s right -- we’re offering a money back guarantee. We want you to feel confident in your giving, because we are confident in God’s promise.
We are so excited that you are joining us in this challenge! We know that you won't regret it!
