Earlier today, I received word from a friend of Liberti Church who wants to see us be able to raise the funds for the first phase of the For The City initiative renovations to the First Baptist Building, and get into the second phase. This will allow us to meet the needs of this building sooner rather than later, and ready this space for another century of ministry to God's Kingdom.

This was their offer: If Liberti Church can raise the $4 million to reach our goal, they will donate an additional $1 million!! That would mean we’d have $5 million raised for renovations - but, we need to raise $4 million to receive this additional gift!

To see this happen, we need to do three things:

First, pray! Pray that God provides for Liberti Church!

Second, help us spread the word! If you have family members, friends, or know of others who’d see the strategic value of this initiative, would you reach out to them and encourage them to give? Anyone, near or far, can commit a pledge by using our secure online form here.

Third, join us on Sunday, and come ready to give! This Sunday, November 16th, is the day we’re all going to be turning in our pledges for how we’re going to invest in the For The City initiative. So make sure to join us on Sunday, ready to invest generously and sacrificially in what God’s doing in Philadelphia!

See you Sunday!
