Cherry Hills Family Meetings
Over the past couple of years, we have been reminded how important good communication is for the health of our church. To be as accessible as possible, the Elders and Senior Leadership Team are holding regular question and answer times where anyone from the church family can come hear an update on what is being worked on and ask questions. Our next Q&A will be held on Sunday, June 9 in rooms E201-202 during the 11:00 a.m. worship service.
At the beginning of 2019 we devoted ourselves to the practice of prayer. Our next scheduled prayer event is Friday, June 28th from 8:30am-4:30pm. We are going to take advantage of the beautiful weather to prayer walk our campus. During this walk, you’ll be given a prayer guide and we’ll join in asking God what He wants to do on our campus, in our ministries and beyond our walls. No sign up is necessary, just come to the church lobby on June 28, pick up a prayer guide and begin walking.
We recently announced that online giving is now available through Realm. You can now give online in three different ways – from your computer, by texting or through the Realm app on your smartphone. We want you to know that giving this way is safe as your information is encrypted and Realm uses the highest security standards in the industry.
To give online you must be a member of our Realm community. Once you are a registered user of Realm, you can follow the simple steps to begin giving online.
Let me answer a question you might have: WHY? Why online giving? You can certainly continue to give the ways you have in the past with cash or check. But we’ve seen our society use online banking and giving in an increased way – to the point that many people don’t carry cash or checks any more. We don’t believe this is the church being influenced by technology. We see this as the church using technology to help accomplish the mission Jesus has given us to share the good news and reach more people. When you give you are giving towards every person in every generation giving themselves fully to Jesus and His mission.
One final comment and this is important – if you struggle financially or you have not made wise decisions with credit cards in the past – this may not be for you and we would actually suggest you do not accumulate more credit card debt by giving to the church. We pray that as we offer this form of giving, that we would all practice wise financial stewardship in using this technology.
If you have questions, feel free to email or call the church office (217.546.4848) and our staff will be happy to help you.
