Church Goal Resources
It’s going to take many gifts, large and small, to meet our million-dollar fundraising goal. That’s why we’re asking churches to set goals for their participation in the campaign. Church goals aren’t binding contracts (no one will come after you if you don’t meet your goal). Instead, they are hopes and dreams about how many lives each of our local congregations can save. What about your church? Have you set a goal yet?
We have many resources available to help you set and track your church goal. Click on the name of the pdf/document (in orange) to download it onto your computer:
Engagement Guide GNW: Is your church interested in getting involved? You’re going to need this! Here’s a sneak peak at the table of contents:
Church Goal GNW: One of the first steps of getting engaged in INM is setting a goal for your church (either per attendee or by number of lives saved, and over what time). This form is a good way to identify the amount and timeline for your church goal. Once signed, you can send your church affirmation in to our Field Coordinator so she can provide resources.
INM Pledge Form 2014 GNW (doc): Communicate to us how you would like to support INM- through prayers, presence, gifts, service and/or witness so that we can include you in our plans! This form is for individuals (and it is recommended that your church leaves a few copies of this on your display table). You can also download it as a PDF instead of a word document: INM Pledge Form 2014 GNW (pdf)
Ideas for your Church So you’ve set your goal and informed your congregation on INM. What’s next? Here is a list of annual event ideas, more than a dozen other ideas of what your church could do with INM (including, possibly, reaching out to your local community), and a reminder of the 5 steps.
Activity Ideas and How To Here is a list of activities! Get engaged in INM and your community through food, the outdoors, music, sports and more. Each activity has an example of what another church has done. This pdf also includes specifics on how to do the Sleep Out, display, movie night, worship, and how to make those pipe cleaner mosquitoes(they help attract attention).
