WHAT //DO GOOD CHALLENGE
The DO GOOD CHALLENGE is a 9-month challenge to use $100 plus your time, talent and treasure to make an impact outside of our church walls.
WHO //PACESETTERS & PARTICIPANTS
We are looking for 12 pacesetters to take this challenge and report their journey along the way. We also want to encourage participants to fund their own challenge. Participants are not required to report their progress.
WHEN //NOW - THANKSGIVING
Pacesetters will receive their challenge envelope with $100 during service on March 19 and 22. They have 9 months, until Thanksgiving, to complete their challenge. We will monitor their progress and share their stories along the way.
BE A PACESETTER
We are looking for 12 pacesetters who are willing to be accountable and share their journey with us. Foundry Church has received a generous donation to fund the 12 pacesetters with their $100 starting money. The 12 pacesetters will register with Debra Prince by March 22nd. Once they have created their strategy, they will share their plans with Debra and give her regular updates to share with the congregation. Our goal is to complete the challenge by Thanksgiving 2015.
BE A PARTICIPANT
You can also participate in the challenge by funding your own starting money. Participants are not required to register with Debra and report on your progress, but we would still like to hear about your efforts if you would like to share.
WHAT WOULD YOU DO WITH $100?
- $100 paid for one marathon entry which turned into $2000 in funds raised to sponsor the runner.
- $100 paid for 20 books that were mailed to friends with a personal challenge to give to a common cause. The result was $5000 dollars raised as friends were inspired to continue sending the books with personal challenges to give.
- $100 paid for 2 goats and 4 chickens to be given to a village in Africa which fed the entire village with healthy milk, cheese, yogurt and eggs.
- $100 paid for supplies to knit 100 hats, blankets and scarves where were given personally to the homeless.
MAKE IT COUNT
Just like the parable of the talents, we want to be responsible with our resources. Are we multiplying our time, talent and treasures to be used to advance the kingdom of God?
Consider being a pacesetter, participant or even funding someone else’s challenge.
