Introduction

Because I am not able to personally visit each of you, I am taking this opportunity to share with you recent events at Fairview Baptist Church. I hope and pray that in doing so, each of you will sense God’s leading as we walk in His grace.

I believe, as I hope you do, that the ministries of our church are a blessing to both our church body and the families outside of our congregation. God continues to bless us as we see His Spirit move and more people added to our number daily. We have been charged with complete obedience by the Father, and complete obedience means total surrender in all we do and give.

Standing on the Promises is the name chosen for our stewardship campaign. We believe that, with God’s guidance, this campaign will fulfill the financial needs of our church for our next step in the journey. As part of our Standing on the Promises campaign, every household is asked to prayerfully consider making a sacrificial commitment (over and above your ongoing tithes and offerings) to be given during the next three years. We hope to identify 3-year commitments that the Lord our God is pleased with. As you can see, Standing on the Promises is an important step for our future and the eternal blessings in store for our forever Fairview Family.

Please read the enclosed materials regarding our Standing on the Promises campaign. This will provide you with basic information about our path to the future. We will also be conducting several Vision Gathering Events, so we ask that you watch your mailbox for an invitation to attend. The purpose of this meeting is to share information with you, to answer any questions you might have, and to encourage you to make this a special matter in your daily private praise and prayer time.

Please know that your participation in the Vision Gathering is very important and that no commitments will be taken at this meeting.

These are exciting days of decision in our church. Let us commit to seek and act in God’s will. To the glory of God, we will learn to Stand on the Promises.

In His name,

Dr. Jeff LaBorg
