Dear Friends of God,
I don’t know how often you think of yourself under the label “friend of God,” but I hope that you hear and receive it as a word of blessing, encouragement and hope. In your giving to Central Christian Church through time, talent and treasure, you are demonstrating your friendship, commitment and love to God. After all, this is what friends do for one another, isn’t it?
Abraham was called “friend of God” (Isaiah 41:8; James 2:23). Jesus called his disciples “friends” (John 15:15) and The Son and The Father are One (John 10:30). Those who do the will of God are Jesus’ family (Matthew 12:50). We are friends and family with God when we join together in what God is doing in the world in and through the church. By your financial contributions you are doing just that. Here are some examples:
Thank you for your continued faithfulness and partnership with Central as we serve the world in Jesus’ name and for his sake. Please contact the church office if you have any questions about the enclosed giving statement.
Yours in Christ,
