There was much excitement in the air on Sunday, April 3rd, 2016. It seemed as if there was a bounce in every step walking through the doors, confidence about the journey Candlewood was ready to embark on this spring day, fully ready to place every ounce of trust on the Lord. This was the day that so many had been waiting for – the official kickoff of The Building Together Campaign in both Omaha and Lincoln.
We kicked-off with our pastors explaining, in the video below, what we want to accomplish, why, and how you can help as we begin the campaign that we are trusting God will use to raise the faith and the funds to acquire permanent locations in both Omaha and Lincoln.
Then, Pastor Rory Whitney in Omaha and Pastor Jim Wiebelhaus in Lincoln delivered sermons to kick-off the campaign and highlighted the significance of generosity, setting up the month about the topic for Sundays, and how as a church we are encouraged to read The Genius of Generosity by Chip Ingram to be discussed in Small Groups. All of this will lead to May 1st – Commitment Sunday.
In the meantime, during the month of April, we ask that you join us in praying every day. You can use our Daily Prayer Guide to give glory to God, pray for the campaign, pray for the community of believers, pray for outreach, and pray for the Lord to develop a spirit of generosity in Candlewood.
We are excited for this tremendous step of faith we are taking as a church. We believe God wants to do more.
