The Appeal - How You Can Help! We are not looking for equal giving but equal sacrifice. We believe our goal is achievable if every person in our church will prayerfully consider what God would want them to give. Each one of us will receive a different answer to that question. The graphic below is not intended to suggest various giving tiers, but rather to demonstrate how our goal might be realized as God speaks to each one of us individually. What is important to note is that every gift matters and collectively - we can reach our goal. The empty blank at the bottom represents the fact that you might feel called to give a figure not represented on this graph. Remember, equal sacrifice not equal giving. If each of us makes a prayerful, heartfelt commitment to God’s work, the cumulative results will be amazing! We are not looking for equal giving but equal sacrifice. Our goal is that every person in our church prayerfully ask God what He wants them to Give to this vision.

Financial FAQs When do I respond with my 2-year commitment?

During weekend services on March 10th, you’ll have the opportunity to bring your commitment card to the front of the stage as an act of worship. Cards will then be recorded confidentially by our Bookkeeping Office.

Why do we ask for a commitment?

The commitment process gives us a huge benefit when it comes to practicing long-term planning for the church’s future. When households indicate what they will give over the 24-month period, we can make cash flow decision and prioritize how those resources will be used.

Do I have to give?

No, you do not have to give. You get to give. We would encourage you to follow the advice of the Apostle Paul, who wrote in 1 Corinthians 9:7: “Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.” All we ask is that you go to God with your finances and ask what He would have you give and agree with Him. But please also remember that we are asking that when you give, you give above and beyond your normal generosity to Highrock.

Are we giving any money away? To what?

One of the things that makes Highrock so unique is our generosity with those who are doing God’s work, locally and globally. Currently, we earmark 20% of all donations to support our denomination and local and global ministries. A campaign represents an opportunity for us to be extra-generous, so a portion of the funds we raise during the More Stories campaign will go to support X, Y and Z.

Financial FAQs (cont'd) Are we retiring debt?

YES! We have maintained a small amount of debt since building our building in 2002 but have been making strides in the past decade to eliminate the debt as quickly as possible. One of the goals of this campaign is to fully pay off our mortgage, freeing up over $70k a year for the sake of investment in church multiplication.

When can we begin to give and how long will we give?

Although we are asking for people to make a two-year financial pledge to the campaign, the campaign will take place over the course of three calendar/tax years. Financial gifts can begin as early as February 2019 and will continue until December 2021. Roughly 10% of our regular giving is dedicated to supporting our denomination and its various ministries. During the capital campaign, the denomination allows for all campaign gifts to go toward the campaign alone. There is a tax advantage in that the two-year pledge is spread over three tax years.

What if we don’t reach our goal?

The leadership team has been working on this plan for years and with increased intensity over the past year. Throughout this process, we have been refining the plan and have prioritized the list of what we feel needs to happen to help Highrock accomplish its mission. If we fall short of our goal, we will adjust the plan to meet the highest priority needs first.

Ways to Give Check

Stock Transfer

Instead of liquidating appreciated stock and paying capital gains, the stock can be directly donated from your account to a brokerage account set up by Highrock. The donor avoids tax and at the same time can count the transfer as a charitable donation. Highrock immediately sells the stock and has the funds to put toward the campaign.
