God said, "Be fruitful and multiply" (Genesis 1:28)
Jesus said, "Bear much fruit and prove to be my disciples" (John 15:8).
Jesus also said, "Go and make disciples of all nations baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And I am with you always to the end of the age" (Matthew 28:19-20).
God has been multiplying disciples and transforming lives through this congregation for 153 years. Can you believe it?
We are in a fruit-bearing season and while the harvest is plentiful we believe God is asking us to stick to the foundational basics of Christianity by multiplying disciples and transforming lives with the life-giving news of Jesus.
That's why we are hosting this campaign called MULTIPLY.
MULTIPLY is a two-phased, intentional, short-term, fundraising initiative at Saints Peter and Paul to aggressively pay down our mortgage debt in order to accelerate the multiplication of ministries moving forward.
Phase 1: Our goal was to raise a minimum of $500,000 above and beyond our regular giving by the end of 2020 to reduce our $830,000 mortgage. However, phase 1 was completed by not only by raising $500,000 but by raising all of the money to eliminate the entire mortgage. We paid off our mortgage in its entirety at the end of June 2020.
Phase 2: We will continue raising money, above and beyond our regular giving, for the rest of 2020 to create a fund specifically designed to provide seed capital for future, new ministries.
Your gifts into the Multiply Fund will be a blessing for the future as we intentionally seek out new ministry opportunities to multiply disciples and disciple-makers.
