What is the Vision Offering?
The purpose of The Roads Church Vision Offering is to give us an opportunity to both express our gratitude for how God has blessed us in this current year as well as sow forward with hope and faith to what God is going to do in the next year. This offering is a chance to partner with His vision for The Roads Church to “Connect People With Jesus From All Roads of Life” and continue to build His kingdom throughout this region, state, nation and world in 2022, because it is bigger than us. We are “Pulling On The Leash,” releasing our faith and dreaming big because we serve a big God!
The Origin – Our 2018 Vision Offering:
God told the Israelites that if they would trust Him by not keeping any of the spoils of Jericho, the first city that they conquered in the promised land, but give it all to the treasury of house of the LORD then He would provide for them out of the spoils of the remaining cities. This is what we did with our very first Vision Offering in 2018. We gave every single dollar that came in to the Lighthouse Church in Panama City Beach, FL, after their church building was destroyed by Hurricane Michael. We gave over $100,000 away trusting Him to supply all of our needs going forward by His riches in glory.
And since then, our Annual Vision Offerings have allowed us to purchase the Mt Carmel South School and refurbish it into our Roads Church Mt Carmel Campus, and purchase camera and production equipment in February 2020, allowing us to be up and running online, when we weren’t able to be in church, and now reaching our eRoads Family.
Bible Verses About Sowing & Offerings:
Exodus 36:2-7 2 – The account of Moses building the sanctuary.
2 Corinthians 9:6-11 – God’s principle of “sowing.”
How you can be a part of the 2021 Vision Offering:
If you call The Roads Church your home, or you have been ministered to through this ministry, please take some time to prayerfully consider how God would want you to sow into this opportunity. God gave His best seed in Jesus to grow something much bigger and this is our chance to bring our best seed to Him and sow into the “bigger” that He wants to accomplish through us. We will bring our offering together as an act of worship during all of our services at each of our locations on Sunday, November 21st. You can also use our online or texting options.
