Dwelling 1:14 -Mission Support– We have been discussing how we can support the mission outreach of Pastor Greg Finke/Dwelling 1:14. In the past eight years they have trained over 500 congregations and distributed over 50,000 Dwelling 1:14 books and videos in many countries, all aimed at Joining Jesus on His Mission. The Dwelling 1:14 Mission has a tight annual budget of $249,000 with 50% of that amount raised from donations.  Without donors, Dwelling 1:14 would have to cease operations and would not be able to encourage people around the world to share Jesus with those around them. During the month of October, Dwelling 1:14 Mission has a $25,000 matching gift campaign. What a great time to support this mission outreach! All gifts given in October will be matched, dollar for dollar! During the remaining Sundays in October, if the Lord moves you to support the spread of the Gospel through Dwelling 1:14, please share your gift through a check payable to St. Paul Lutheran that includes a notation on the memo line for Pastor Finke or Dwelling 1:14; checks can be placed in the offering plate. We will forward the funds to Dwelling 1:14 before the end of October so that they will be matched.  If you want to follow the exciting news of this ministry log on to www.dwelling114.org.
