Pentecost Offering

May 19, 2024 

Mustard Seed Planting



(Also see our Five Dollar Offering for micro churches!)


In Matthew 17:20, Jesus says, "... I tell you the truth, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, 'Move from here to there' and it will move.  Nothing will be impossible for you."  As you can see from the picture, a mustard seed is very small.  Yet, it holds great potential, for it can grow into a large tree where birds can build their nests and people can find shade.  

With the image of the mustard seed, we introduce the theme for Pentecost 2024 - Mustard Seed Planting.  And on Sunday, May 19, 2024, Pentecost Sunday, we invite you to participate in this endeavor to help start 100 micro churches in and around Chicagoland.  A micro church is a smaller expression of the church which focuses on specific people or interest groups. These churches meet together to pray, learn, encourage and serve together. They live out Christian community together in a variety of settings.  Like the mustard seed, we believe what starts out small - in this case micro churches - can grow, spread and have great impact.

One area of this micro church focus will be on the deaf community.  Only 2% of the world's deaf people are Christians.  It costs $3000 (training materials, equipment and other necessities) to start a group that reaches into the deaf community.  This will be one of the people groups Pentecost 2024 will focus on reaching.  

We invite individuals and churches to be a part of this offering.  You can participate now by clicking the donation button below.  Just select 'Pentecost Offering' on the drop down menu.

Thank you in advance for participating with us in reaching more people for Jesus in Chicagoland.
