CALVARY BAPTIST CHURCH’S MISSION HAS ALWAYS BEEN TO PURSUE THE GLORY OF GOD.
The church acquired property on Old Kathleen Road in 2020 with the goal of relocating our facilities so that we might be able to have the capacity to fulfill that goal in a greater way. We have developed a master plan to guide the church in relocating over the next year. We intend to use this new facility to enhance and expand the outreach programs of Calvary Baptist Church. We feel God’s calling to be involved in sharing His Word with the Lakeland community and this facility would give us more opportunity to do so.
The name “Project 28:20” comes from 1 Chronicles 28:20,
“And David said to Solomon his son, Be strong and of good courage, and do it: fear not, nor be dismayed: for the Lord God, even my God, will be with thee; he will not fail thee, nor forsake thee, until thou hast finished all the work for the service of the house of the Lord.”
CREATIVE WAYS TO GIVE
A great way to contribute is to give existing assets. Giving assets to the church and letting the church sell them eliminates potential capital gains taxes and may increase after-tax proceeds. Please contact the church office for more guidance before committing an asset gift to determine its viability for liquidation.
Often, there are creative ways to save money. Maybe it’s been a while since you requested a quote for an existing service (e.g., cell phone and cable service). Perhaps you could do some extra comparison or bargain shopping to save funds. For your children, it could be as easy as saving spare change to give.
Are there plans you might be making that involve a financial commitment? If so, prayerfully ask God about delaying those plans and using the extra income to contribute.
Are there things in your life you can take advantage of less frequently? Maybe it’s fewer coffee shop runs or one less dinner out each week. By decreasing a weekly expense, regardless of what it might be, you can save a significant amount to contribute.
