A LETTER FROM OUR PASTORS:
2022 offered us many challenges while also affording us very real and tangible moments with the Lord and with one another. Moments of provision, of guidance, of unity, and of His Spirit. This past year was one of pruning and of watering. A year of leaning into our Father through all of life's ups and downs. It was a year of rebuilding and rebirthing. A year of grace for the slowness that our humanity requires. Today, we sit simply wanting to join God where He is already at work, as we remain in Him. This year, may we simply rest under the branches of our Father, remaining in Christ's love, and trusting Him to be a good gardener. Trusting that what He prunes and what He waters is for our benefit. He has good things in store for this family! (John 15:1-9)

Three month generosity challenge
Like any new spiritual habit, generosity requires faith, ongoing dedication, and timely encouragement. We want to walk with you in this next step as you partner with Media City Church and hold your money with care!
Jesus, the exact representation of God Himself, modeled generosity by being the most generous human to ever walk the planet (Acts 20:35; Mt. 20:28). A common uttered truth says “you can’t out-give God”. As the church, we bear the responsibility to help provide for one another’s needs as a family, while also give towards the fullness of God’s goodness practically being expressed in the local community and beyond.
Acts 4:34-35 - There were no needy people among them, because those who owned land or houses would sell them 35 and bring the money to the apostles to give to those in need.
1 Corinthians 16:1-2 - Now regarding your question about the money being collected for God’s people in Jerusalem. You should follow the same procedure I gave to the churches in Galatia. 2 On the first day of each week, you should each put aside a portion of the money you have earned. Don’t wait until I get there and then try to collect it all at once.
Countless people experience God’s blessings when they build the habit of generosity towards the mission of God. Throughout Biblical history, we see God’s people give a tithe (the first 10%) of their resources to support the community, while Jesus uses this standard as a launchpad towards an ideal standard of endless generosity modeled through His life, death, and resurrection. The Three Month Generosity Challenge is a money back guarantee of sorts. We are collectively committed as a local church in being people that have a “Heart For The House”!
