Lottie Moon Christmas Offering Update

Offering Goal: $25,000
$8,000 to the Gardners
$17,000 to the International Mission Board

Last week we reminded you that we began collecting the LCMO the first Sunday in December. Since we let you know a particular need came to our attention. One of our gospel partners is in need of a vehicle for the field. The elders have agreed to set aside $8,000 of the LCMO offering to this end. We are joining other partner churches to help provide for this vehicle.The remainder of the monies we receive will go to the International Mission Board.
All these monies will go directly to help the work of missionaries on the field. Would you pray about how much you might give above and beyond your regular giving to help us reach our goal that we may help reach the nations with the gospel of Jesus Christ?
2024 Proposed Budget Draft
On Sunday night, November 26, Pastor Davey presented the proposed budget draft. We also sent the 2024 Proposed Budget Draft via email. We ask that you look over it carefully, ask questions, and provide feedback. Please contact pastor Davey or David Andrews, our deacon of budget, with questions or suggestions. Finally, join us in praying as follows:
• Pray that the Lord would allow us to be generous and sacrificial and finish 2023 strong.
• Pray that the Lord would give the church wisdom in adopting the 2024 budget.
• Pray that the Lord would grant above and beyond what we can imagine to reach the nations.
NOTE: We will vote on the budget at our December 10 members’ meeting.
Men’s Ministry at High Pointe
At High Pointe, we desire to see all men have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and grow in that relationship in order to look more like Him. We desire to help men in that process and provide opportunities for discipleship. As Christians, we are called to be students of Christ and then to show our fruit of that salvation, which takes the help of a church community. As men of High Pointe, we desire to come along one another to encourage, pray, sharpen, and ultimately point each other to the beauty of a life conformed to the image of Christ. We endeavor to develop these brotherly relationships among the men of High Pointe.

Three Areas of Focus: (1) Men’s Events, (2) Discipleship Groups (DGroups), and 1:1 Discipleship (Mentoring). You can check out the available DGroups by clicking HERE.

Giving at High Pointe
God is generous, and so he calls us to be as well. What we do with what God has given us shows the world where our hearts are and helps proclaim the gospel. We want to glorify God in every area of our lives, including what we do with our finances. But as you may have noticed, we do not take up a collection on Sundays at High Pointe. Consequently, we’ve been receiving questions as to how to give. There are several ways you may give:
1. Offering Boxes in Auditorium – You may place your offering in an offering box.
2. Mail – You may mail your contribution to the church office.
3. Text/Online – You may give by texting 84321 (it will require a first-time setup).
4. Your Bank – You may give through your own bank via Bill Pay or ACH.
If you have any questions, go to this LINK. Our financial staff is also available to help or answer your questions. You may call the church office at 512-837-7725.
