CHRISTMAS SHARE OFFERING

THE PURPOSES OF THIS OFFERING


Will you begin to pray now about what God would have you give, 

over and above your regular giving, to this special offering?

Allow God to stretch your faith!


Caring for the Children

& those in our World

This offering will allow us to continue our focused approach to sharing the gospel with our world (The Persecuted Church in Laos).  In addition, we want to help Lao followers of Jesus build 5 church buildings.  We care about the Lao orphans and we will help to provide food, clothing, shelter and education each  month for 75 orphans.

Family and Support

God has allowed us to come along side of people in distress due to difficult financial times, a death in the family or a need for intense counseling.  We want to continue to build on this foundation in 2022 to expand our benevolence support.

How can I be a part of the

Christmas Share offering?


Frequently Asked Questions

WHY A SPECIAL OFFERING?      

 

As part of God’s plan to grow the faith of the people in His church, He calls us to sacrificial giving from time to time. This special offering is an opportunity for us to grow in our faith and to prepare us for what God wants to do through our church in 2022. This offering is not because we are behind on budget, but rather it will position us to make a greater impact in 2022.


WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN

THE REGULAR OFFERING AND THIS SPECIAL OFFERING?


The regular Cypress Point offering is the proportional amount (the full tithe of 10%) that we set apart on a systematic basis and give throughout the year. From time to time there are opportunities to give in a sacrificial way. The annual Christmas Share Offering is one of those sacrificial occasions that stretch us to grow in our faith. The special offering should be over and above what you regularly give.



HOW MUCH SHOULD I GIVE?


Since the goal is $41,000 this special offering must involve everyone. Please prayerfully consider a sacrificial gift that will stretch your faith. The precise amount you give is between you and God. Many in our church can give a $1,000 - $5000 gift. Others will be able to give $100 - $500. The issue is not equal giving, but equal sacrifice. What amount can you give that will stretch your faith?


WHEN SHOULD I GIVE?


The best time to give will be on Sunday, November 21, 2021. Please pray about making your best gift on this day. However, you can continue to give until January 15, 2022. If you would like to mail a check, please include a note designating that your gift is for the Christmas Share Offering. For those who would like to make special arrangements to give stock or an early 2022 gift to the Christmas Share Offering simply email our office at information@cpcconline.com.


CAN I GIVE ON-LINE, VIA BANK CHECK OR THROUGH AUTO-DEBIT?


Of course! When you give at www.cypresspoint.church simply mark your gift in the memo area as being for the “Christmas Share Offering.” Likewise, you can use your bank online payment option to send a check directly to the church office. Again, simply mark in the memo area that your gift is for the “Christmas Share Offering”. It’s simple and convenient.


ARE MY GIFTS TAX-DEDUCTIBLE?


All gifts to Cypress Point, whether via the regular offering or this special offering, are completely tax-deductible. Be sure your gift arrives at our office before  December 31, 2021 to insure that it can  be applied to your 2021 Giving Statement. Please be sure to include your name and address when you give so that a receipt can be sent to you in early 2022 for your tax preparation.


HOW DID WE ARRIVE AT A $41,000 GOAL?


It is a God-sized goal that can only be accomplished through 100% participation and sacrificial giving by our Cypress Point members. 


HOW WILL I KNOW IF WE REACH OUR GOAL?


Please pray for God's guidance as we all give sacrificially.  You will be updated through The Point’s E-news and during our Sunday services.
