Church Of The Highlands Kicks Off Fundraising Campaign

Monday, January 27, 2014

A fundraising campaign to raise $1,500,000 to continue construction of the church buildings at Church of the Highlands, 6620 Hunter Road, Harrison, was announced Sunday, on the church's first anniversary. Greater Things is the name chosen for the stewardship campaign, according to Dr. Jeremy Roberts, lead pastor.

"We believe that, with God's guidance, this ministry will fulfill the financial needs of our church.

As part of our Greater Things program, every household is asked to prayerfully consider making a sacrificial commitment (over and above your ongoing tithes and offerings) to be given over the next two years. We hope to raise $1,500,000 in order to move forward in our ministry. As you can see, Greater Things is an important step to our future and your involvement impacts its success," he told the congregation.

"These are exciting days of decision in our church. Let us commit to seek and act in God's will. I encourage you to join us in this two year journey of supernatural living and sacrificial giving. To the glory of God, we will move ahead with faith."

Greater Things is a two year supernatural journey of sacrificial giving to raise $1,500,000 to build the new worship center and kids/preschool space and develop a presence on Highway 58 where visibility will increase by 800%.

 Several events are planned for the fundraising campaign, including:
