At JCNaz we have one driving focus: “We exist to make Christ-like disciples who transform their world.” Not only is that an extremely important mission, but YOU are a very vital part of helping this God-given mission become a reality. God has done amazing things among us in 2018 and as we step into 2019 I wanted to give you an encouraging reminder: “No eye has seen, no ear has heard, and no mind has imagined the things God has prepared for those who love him.” (1 Corinthians 2:9)

Here’s just a few of the mighty ways God used your generous investment at JC Naz in 2018:

* 102 people publicly committed their lives to Jesus Christ as Savior! Many of those have taken the step of baptism, and are growing in their faith through small groups and being involved on a ministry team.

*Children and teens were able to experience summer camps and life-changing mission trips!

* Through the Road to Calvary Easter Drama and the Community Dinner on Christmas Day we were able to show hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of people the love of Jesus in a practical way.

* An entire elementary school was adopted (Franklin Elementary), and through your generosity we’ve been able to bless and encourage them in many practical ways. A couple weeks ago at a surprise assembly, we were able to give every student and staff a Franklin Falcon shirt. During the assembly over 100 students and staff were chanting, “JC Naz Rocks! JC Naz Rocks!” To God be the glory!

* God brought over 500 first time guests through the doors of JC Naz in 2018, and many, many have chosen to make JC Naz their church home and help us advance the mission of Jesus!

Every time you give financially, you are giving hope and you are moving people closer and closer to the joy of relationship with Jesus and the gift of eternal life found only in Him! As God leads us into the “more” he has in store for 2019, please keep in mind there are numerous ways to invest in the Kingdom including n
on-cash gifts! We can walk you through the most beneficial way for you to give stocks, bonds, real estate, grain, vehicles, etc.

We praise God for you and your partnership the Gospel! May the Lord bless and continue to richly bless you and make you a blessing!

Serving with Great Joy,
Pastor Mark
TAKE THE CHALLENGE
Tithing is about training our heart to trust God at His word. In Malachi 3:10 God promises, “Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. Test me in this,” says the Lord Almighty, “and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that there will not be room enough to store it.” When we bring our first and best back to God, He promises to bless the rest. When God makes a promise, You can take that to the Bank!
 
We know generosity is a huge step of obedience, but you’re not in this ALONE! We want to ENCOURAGE you! If you’re not tithing already, a great way to start is by joining others in this church family with the JCNaz 90 Day Tithe Challenge.
 
If you have not started tithing yet, we want to extend the 90-day tithing challenge to you. Simply fill out this form and we will send you all the details so you can take this important step of faith and see God’s faithfulness in your life first hand!
