This is a unique moment in our history as we reach out to the state-line area! There are 455,000 individuals within a 35-minute drive of our campus, many who have not experienced the hope of Jesus. We feel led to launch two additional locations in the next two years, so more people can know Jesus!
What will these locations be like?
Our locations will have an identical ministry approach and feel as our present campus with live worship, kids’ and youth services, Champions Club, and ministry to all ages. We will stream the message each week from the existing location so that everyone hears the same sermon.
What is being asked?
We are asking everyone to prayerfully make a commitment by November 29 and to the best of their ability give the first installment of their commitment at the annual First Gift offering on December 4. We have many upfront expenses as we prepare for these two new locations and this will help us anticipate what to plan for. Commitments can be made online at rockfordfirst.com/hopeforall.
What does making a commitment look like?
Making a financial commitment is easy. You are able to submit your two-year pledge online at rockfordfirst.com/hopeforall or fill out a commitment card at our weekend services.
When should we start fulfilling our pledges and begin making our financial contributions?
We are encouraging everyone to start giving on December 4, 2016 where we will begin our monthly giving commitments at our First Gift offering. We're also encouraging everyone to set up an online giving account and make reoccurring contributions over the next two years to fulfill their pledge.
