As a community we are grateful for God’s faithfulness over these past 20 years and look forward to the next 20 together. Here’s a few Deep Roots New Branches FAQ’s and answers…
What if I was not able to be present on May 6, 2012 for Pledge day? Deep Root New Branches is a 20 month campaign. Gifts and pledges over and above regular giving can be made at any time in the next 20th months.
What is the Deep Roots New Branches campaign goal? $120,000. We will update our progress towards this goal over the 20 month period. Construction of the playground will begin when funds are in hand. Outside grants are funding year one of the Hispanic ministry and Church Planting Residency. Granite Springs’ obligation to these ministries kicks in for year two.
I keep hearing about these outside grants. Where is this money coming from? Granite Springs is privileged to be part of a nationwide network of churches that is committed to expanding ministry in North America. Our denomination, (the Christian Reformed Church), our classis (regional body of churches), a special program called “Kingdom Enterprise Zones” have committed nearly $100,000 combined towards these new ministries. In addition, Braden Kok is committed to raising another $50,000 over two years to support his residency. Deep Roots New Branches is an extraordinary bargain for Granite Springs!
