what is missio dei?
Missio Dei is latin for the "Mission of God". Here at City Church Chicago we are on mission and full of faith to see the Gospel preached and disciples made. Our hope is that you would join your faith with ours as we believe God to provide everything we need to do all that God has asked us to do. Missio Dei is our annual giving campaign here at City Church Chicago.
when is missio dei?
On Sunday, June 12th we gathered together as a Church to bring our special offering, serving cards, and giving pledges. Missio Dei continues through July 15th, 2016.
WHAT IS THIS YEAR'S MISSIO DEI OFFERING GOING TO ACCOMPLISH?
Pastor Kent and Alli, our pastors, leaders and board are unified behind the vision for our next step forward as a church. This years Missio Dei offering will go toward three specific categories: Partnerships (local & global missions projects), People (staffing and organizational development), and Places and Spaces.
We intend to expand the auditorium and lobby space here at 777 N. Green Street. The expansion will double our current seating capacity. Architects have estimated this renovation will cost $1.5 million. This addition is a more cost effective expansion than purchasing a second auditorium space at this time.
In addition to the auditorium expansion, the new addition will house a two-story atrium and revamped entryway, a prayer garden along with a prayer tower, and a coffee shop located in our lobby. Proceeds from the coffee shop will contribute toward our Missions program.
HOW DO I PARTICIPATE?
Consider and be aware of what God may be trying to get to you, so that He can bring it back into His House through you. In just a few short weeks we have already seen people receive unexpected tax returns, refunds from utility companies and unexpected opportunities to receive funds that were not previously available. Perhaps you have the ability to sell some belongings or have a bake sale if your income is relatively fixed. If you're a business owner, consider believing for additional contracts over the coming weeks.
As we think higher, we can also pray bigger prayers and believe that God is able to bless us abundantly. Align your prayers with God's mission in this great city and watch Him do what only He can do!
Through July 15th 2016, we have the opportunity to respond to what God has provided us for putting our faith into action by bringing our best offering, becoming a part of this monumental season as we give greater than we have ever before.
Participate throughout the Missio Dei season with special serving opportunities and join a City Church Chicago GO-Team!
