Pressure

This year’s campaign to raise funds for a new sanctuary and other buildings and remodeling of the current church
is unprecedented in its scope and breadth. Pastor’s sermon series, targeted and specific devotional distributed after church, invitations to smaller group discussions, commitments for large contributions from the wealthiest members of the congregation up front, talk at the annual meeting, repeated implications that God’s work will not be done or will be limited unless this massive building project is complete (whaaaaat?), different devotions created just for members of one specific campus in the daily devotional…I have personally contributed funds for years to help the previous two building campaigns, but this year’s push is of unprecedented proportions and saturation and palpable pressure!
