People live behind a screen. Studies show a person’s first visit to a church in online. We want to provide an opportunity for people to experience a weekend in a context they’re familiar with. We believe we can connect with a larger group of people with an online campus than we would ever connect with in a traditional way.
Our online campus will be extremely interactive. We will have online hosts that will engage with our online community. Our online hosts will be there to answer questions, facilitate discussion, provide prayer and care when needed and when ready bridge people to a physical location.
Our second campus will be located a 15-30 minute drive from our current location. We are following growth trends and will use that information to help us determine the best location for our new campus.
We will most likely rent or lease a facility and operate as a portable location.
Be creative as you explore ways you and your family can give toward UNFINISHED. You might have some stock, property, or other items of that nature. Or you may have some stored resources that God has blessed you with in the past that He might be calling you to give during this time. Please let us know if you need assistance with facilitating gifts of property or stock, and we would be happy to help you with that. You can contact Julie Braun to make a gift of this type.
UNFINISHED is about the vision for our church. We believe that the local church is one of the most compelling missions to give toward and we would really love for you to make RiverGlen your home and join us in UNFINISHED. If you are ready for it, this is a perfect time for you to put a stake in the ground and make this your church. We need you on the team!
First and foremost, we are asking that you pray and seek God’s leading on what He is asking of you. Prepare your heart to hear Him, and then listen to what He says. Join a small group during this season, if you aren’t already part of one. Engage in personal reflection with God in the UNFINISHED Booklet you receive. Talk with your spouse, your family, or others about what this commitment will mean for this next exciting season of your life. We are asking that you make a sacrificial commitment to generosity – whatever it is that God leads you to do. Follow Him. Finally, we ask that you prepare to be amazed. We serve an awesome God, and He is going to move in huge ways. We anticipate an unprecedented impact from our collective Unfinished commitments – something only God can do. Please mark your calendar for Commitment Weekend, November 12th & 13th, 2016 and prepare to experience a life-changing service that will forever be remembered as a defining moment for our church and for our own faith.
We are asking that everyone make a two-year (24 month) commitment. The commitment period will begin with our First Big Give on the weekend of December 3rd & 4th, 2016 and conclude in December of 2018.
