You may have already heard that God has called my family and me to plant a new church, in the Quad Cities, called Mercy Vineyard Church. We believe that the greatest form of evangelism today is church planting and we’re excited to partner with God in bringing in a harvest in Northwest Moline/Northeast Rock Island. There, we will be reaching out to the working poor of our community to meet their spiritual and physical needs. We have a long way to go and a short time to get there and we are asking you to partner with us financially and through your prayers.
Our vision is to see a large, multicultural, multigenerational, multiplying church reaching, teaching, and releasing to make God famous and expand His Kingdom on the Illinois side of the Quad Cities. Our first Sunday morning service will be held on September 18th. Our goal is 300 in attendance and our launch team has been working hard to invite friends, coworkers, relatives, and neighbors. We believe many will come to know Jesus and we’ll do whatever it takes to introduce seekers to Him.
We have been blessed and sent out by The Vineyard Church of Davenport with their full support. The majority of our launch team is from there and we carry with us many of their values and their philosophy of ministry. It’s a wonderful culture of being the hands and feet of Jesus to our community.
To make this happen, we need to raise $72,000 as quickly as possible; $15, 650 for marketing, signage, and print materials, $12,000 for sound, lighting, and video equipment, $15,000 for facilities, and $30,000 for administration. We have so far raised $20,000 but still have $52,000 to go to make this happen in a way that speaks excellence, caring, and commitment to the community we are reaching out to. Would you please commit to a large, one time financial gift or a monthly gift to Mercy Vineyard Church for 18 months?
Giving can be done by mailing a check to Mercy Vineyard Church P.O. Box 1654 Moline, IL 61266 or online at www.findmercy.org/giving. Financial supporters will receive monthly newsletters to keep them up to date with what God is doing through our brand new church and inform them of urgent prayer needs.
If you wish to speak to me personally about the Mercy Vineyard Church and how you can be a part, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I would be honored to share, in greater detail, the strategy for launching this new work.
