We have traditionally made the month of March our Stewardship month. Stewardship month ends on the first Sunday of April which we call April Faith Day. April Faith day is the one sacrificial offering Faith Baptist Church receives each year. Every year we give large gifts to Missionaries or Missionary projects out of our april Faith Day offering. This year we celebrate the blessings God has given to us. Our Capital Campaign draws to a close at the end of March and if all the pledges come in and the property in Lake Wales sells at its appraised value we have a projected total of $2,427,572.44 to the praise of God’s Glory. We want to celebrate God’s goodness by giving two gifts this year.
- A $10,000 gift to missionary evangelist Patricio Oliva who is doing an incredible work for our God in South America. Patricio along with his interpreter Melody (Dooley) Priest has been in our pulpit and been a great blessing to our people
- A $10,000 gift to Jared Malcolm who is our Faith’s 100 Missionary to Brazil. Jared, along with a team of 20 from our church will be traveling to Brazil on June 7 to finish building the house that Jared will be living in (pictured here). this gift would finish the work on the house and furnish it as Jared stays in Brazil to assist the missionaries and Brazilian people by providing a quality working camp facility.
With great joy we can sing To God Be the Glory great things He is doing here at home and overseas.
