For many of you, Southland is home. And everything we do at Southland points us back to welcoming guests to our church home and introducing them to a new life as a Christ follower. On Sunday, December 4, we will be collecting our special offering, and, naturally, we’re calling it This is Home.
Everyone participating in This is Home will be investing in the next generation as we send hundreds of students on a life-changing Christ In Youth trip this summer. We will also be extending hope to a hurricane-ravaged town in Haiti by working with our ministry partner Lifeline to help rebuild a church in La Regale.
Just as each of our homes are different, each of our Southland campuses have different needs in order for us to welcome visitors and help them to live with Jesus, on mission, and in community. In the coming weeks we will be sharing more at each campus to help you learn how your generosity can support both your church home and your community, while also helping our Student Ministry and the rebuilding efforts in Haiti.
We are challenging each person who calls Southland their church home to prayerfully consider giving at least $100 on Sunday, December 4. While many of you may be able to give generously beyond this amount, we would love to have 100% of our people sacrificially give. If that happens, we know people who don’t yet follow Jesus will be able to look at Southland in the future and say along with us, “This Is Home!”
