Message from our Pastor on - Crazy Love, Flood and Giving

Hello everybody! I am so grateful you are a part of the Long Hollow “faith family!”

We are learning to excel in the grace of giving!
I am blown away by your generosity. This past Sunday was amazing! Here’s a breakdown of what was given:

General Fund - $217,229
This puts us only $129,200 behind for the year! As we continue to faithfully give I believe we can make this up over the next few weeks. Remember, this is very important because it funds ministry at Long Hollow 24/7, 365 days a year.

Crazy Love – $515,423
Great news! We have given 79% of our goal of $650,000. That is awesome! We are so close. I know by God’s grace we can do this! Remember, we calculated that if every family gave $400 toward this offering we would fully fund our goal for offering 3. If you haven’t had a chance to give or would like to make an additional contribution, there is still time. I encourage you to bring it with you this Sunday, give it on-line, or use the postage paid envelop you received in the mail a few weeks ago. I want you to continue to pray and respond how God leads you.

Thanks for helping in the Flood Relief Effort !
I was so blessed by Long Hollow's heart for folks affected by the flood. So many helped in so many ways. Many of you were involved in ways we do not know about. However, here’s what we do know: 671 volunteers participated, 97 homes were helped, and over $11,000 was given to the Flood Relief Fund.

There is no way of knowing how many gospel seeds were sown as you were the hands and feet of Jesus.

There are still needs in the community related to the flood and opportunities to serve. For info about how you can help contact Rob Holcomb

Uncool continues.
We continue the “Uncool” series, which is a study of Jesus’ sermon on the mount, this Sunday at all campuses. Bring your Bible, a friend and an expectancy to see God move!
