Alright Tapestry Team, as we step into the final 90 days of 2020, it’s time for a 4th Quarter Comeback! If you are wondering what that looks like, just follow whoever is playing the Falcons on Sunday afternoon. From the prodigal son to Peter’s restoration and Jesus’ resurrection; God specializes in big comebacks! COVID has put us behind the chains as a church, so as we move into this final stretch of 2020 we have some ground to cover.
Financially, we are 24% off the budgeted giving goals we set as a congregation for 2020. Physically, our in-person attendance is 35% lower than last year at this time. We are, however, reaching more people than ever before through our live stream services and seeing unprecedented numbers in our virtual small groups. The Elders and I believe that God can and will take this setback and turn it into a comeback. But we need everybody on the team to rally together and finish this 4th Quarter strong. Here’s the game plan:
- Stay connected either in-person or online
- Prayerfully consider a “Comeback” financial gift to help bridge the gap
- Prayerfully consider your own “Comeback” to safe, in-person worship
This same Jesus, who has been taken from you into heaven, will come back in the same way you have seen him go into heaven."
Acts 1:11 (NIV)
Everybody loves a comeback,
