THE OPPORTUNITY IN FRONT OF US: STEP IN – HERE AND THERE

Our Step In Generosity Initiative is allowing us to do THREE things:

Here: Buy The Land.

Thanks to God’s provision and the families who stepped in during the first year of our Initiative, Lifepointe Church now owns a 12-acre piece of property here in Fort Mill, on York Southern Road. This property, right off Springfield Parkway and across from Springfield Elementary/Middle School, is a prime location, just 2.3 miles from our existing location. This will improve Lifepointe’s visibility in our community while also meeting a real need.

TOTAL COST FOR LAND: $1.1 million

Build Phase One

In March 2017, we officially broke ground and began building Phase One of our new facility. This state-of-the-art, 14,000 square-foot facility, will provide Lifepointe with an incredible 400- seat auditorium for worship, excellent DiscoveryPointe Kids Ministry space, a large modern- style lobby, dynamic Lifepointe Students space and great outdoor environments.

TOTAL COST FOR 14,000 SQUARE-FEET PHASE ONE:
$2.7 million (Total projected cost for land plus Phase One facility – $3.8 million)

Lifepointe has a heart to reach our community, but also to reach the world with the Gospel! Step In will take our global impact as a church to the next level, as we partner with Compassion International to build a new church plant in Ecuador. Once the church has been built and a local pastor has been hired, Compassion will come in and register all the kids in the community in their program. Once the kids are registered, we as a church will have the opportunity to sponsor those children, and even visit them on a short-term mission trip! When you give toward Step In through your 25-month commitment, you are actually helping build two churches, one HERE and one THERE!

TOTAL COST FOR INTERNATIONAL CHURCH: $35,000

Your Part - This Is Our Time To Step In

A Message from Pastor Nate

In November of last year, our entire church came together unified around a common vision that would take Lifepointe to the next level, by providing a permanent location so our vision of reaching people with the FULL LIFE message of Jesus can be done with excellence for generations to come. Seeing this vision become a reality was going to require all of us to sacrifice, over and above our regular giving, for two years (2017-2018). As a church, we committed to give $1.4 million over two years. And, since then, more than $600,000 has been given toward Step In. God is already doing amazing things because of the generosity of His people!

 

It's Not About Equal Giving... It's About Equal Sacrifice

On November 12th, we will be celebrating our Step In One Year Anniversary! This will be a Sunday where we will celebrate all that God has done over the last year through those who stepped in last November. This will also be an opportunity for new families to financially commit to give over and above towards Step In for the next 13 months, as well as families who made a commitment this past year to recommit through December 2018.

Our goal for year two is to SEE IT THROUGH and finish our construction and international church plant strong and with excellence! On this Sunday, we will be asking everyone to fill out a Commitment Card with their commitment to Step In for November 2017 to December 2018. Below are the three ways to give, and a link to our online Commitment Card.

Three Ways to Give
1) Kick-Start Giving

On November 12th, Commitment Sunday, everyone will be asked to hand in their
Step In Commitment Card, along with their kick-start offering toward their total commitment over the next 13 months. This kick-start offering is extremely important, as it sets the tone for the next 13 months!

2) Pledge Giving

On Commitment Sunday, everyone will be asked to designate an amount of money that you plan to give towards Step In over the next 13 months.

3) Non-Cash Giving

Everyone is encouraged to creatively give towards Step In. This can include non-cash gifts, such as boats, land, cars, jewelry, stock, etc.
