IMMEASURABLY MORE

Since our founding in 1998, Lake Forest Church has grown in people, campuses, and impact IMMEASURABLY MORE than what we could have imagined. Our growth is the result of the power of God’s Good News found in Jesus, proclaimed by His generous and faithful followers living on mission more effectively as a tribe than any one of us could by ourselves.

As we prayerfully look ahead to what is next for us, our leadership realizes we cannot rest on what God has done in the past. We must continue to be faithful to the mission Jesus has given us. We are called, as the early church was, to make an impact locally, regionally, and globally.

We are taking the next step in our adventure of following Jesus together by launching IMMEASURABLY MORE, a three-year season of sacrificial and faith-filled generosity to pursue God’s next vision for LFC-Huntersville and LFC-WestLake.

This is a God-sized step of faith that will impact our churches and our communities for many years to come.

Our commitment celebration worship service – "Commitment Sunday" – will take place on Sunday, March 12.

On this day you will have an opportunity to be a part of IMMEASURABLY MORE through God’s vision for Lake Forest by turning in your commitment card, along with any "First Fruits" offering that you’d like to make, as a first payment towards your three-year pledge.

Commitment Cards will be available and distributed beginning Week Three (February 26) of our series.

Pick up a Journey Guide to see a complete set of options on how to pay your pledges, and also get some ideas of how you can think creatively to shift financial priorities and free up resources.

Our Part:
We are so grateful to be united on this mission with you.
If you have any questions as you discern your IMMEASURABLY MORE gift, we would welcome the chance to talk that over with you.
In Huntersville, email spowell@lakeforest.org.
In WestLake, email lebersold@lakeforest.org.

Below are initial answers to questions you may have. We will add more as they come up.

How does this relate to my "normal" church giving?
IMMEASURABLY MORE is an invitation to give above and beyond your normal monthly giving.

Will I be pressured to make a pledge?
No. Participation in the campaign and how much you give will be entirely up to you. All members and guests will be given the opportunity to contribute if they wish to do so.

How may I prepare to participate?
Allow God to speak to your heart throug: weekly worship, prayer, and by spending time in the Bible Studies we’ve prepared. Read Scripture passages that speak about stewardship and giving, such as 1 Corinthians 16:2, Proverbs 11:25, Proverbs 3:5-9, 2 Corinthians 8:7, Acts 20:35, Luke 6:38, and Psalm 116:12.

How long will my commitment be?
You are asked to make a three-year commitment.

If I can’t give a large amount, does my pledge really matter?
Absolutely! All pledges matter, regardless of amount, because as we all participate according to our ability, God multiplies our giving.

When are we expected to give the amount pledged?
Pledge cards will be turned in on Commitment Sunday, March 12, and pledges will begin to be received shortly thereafter.

What forms of contributions will be accepted?
Contributions can be made by cash or check. Other forms of contributions can include the transference of title to marketable stocks, bonds, real estate, etc. Email Nick Biancofiore at nbiancofiore@lakeforest.org to discuss options.

May I update my commitment after Commitment Sunday?
Yes. You may update your commitment at any time.

Do you have to be a church member to participate in the campaign?
No. Participating in the campaign is a personal decision for each of us, and anyone may contribute to God’s work in our church.
