Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God:
I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness. Isiah 41:10
As Children, We Know That There's "A Time To Follow"...
Be It Short or Long, There's Also A Time To Lead
People will come to this page via a lot of different routes and probably, that's how it was meant to be. Whether your church has "a lot" or "a little," one thing is for certain- every church has ongoing expenses, consisting of financial needs that are both planned and unplanned. Our program isn't about addressing all the financial issues that a church may be facing. But, quite simply, what we are offering today is an all new ability to meet one or more specific financial needs...in fashion that is constructively engaging for your members, fun, and almost completely "turn key," And, for "the average" church, that's both quite a blessing and a very refreshing change!
But the real question might be, so why are you on this page? Well, you're here because someone sees in you perhaps both the desire and the potential ability to "step up" and make something happen...for God. And maybe, just maybe, you yourself have felt the desire to "stand" instead of just "sit." And, if that much is true then you're probably really not all that comfortable just being a bystander when there are simple things that just need someone to do them.
But, what if you've never done anything like this before? No worries! We're with you with an all new program that is truly "turn key." Below, we lay out the simple steps. And, we'll be with you every step of the way! Why do we do this you might ask? Simple....we have a mission too! Our mission is to help Christians and would-be Christians all around the world to exceed the bonds of current limitations, even the financial ones.
So let's be real....what financial need does your church have and wish to address? Let's just get it out in the open so that we can deal with it. Ask your finance chair, treasurer, deacon, clergy person or whomever has this information. Next, let's get excited about meeting that need and with God's help. We won't solve the problem alone!
We are going to help you and the people in your church to rise to your challenge in a way that really is easy and actually, believe it or not as you'll see below, not that difficult. No money up front for your church! And, compared to other fundraisers, this is a "no calorie initiative" which a lot of people will like! and, maybe one of the best things? If you're starting this program headed into either Easter or the Christmas holidays, quite possibly, the people in and around your church won't be putting out any more cash than they otherwise would. The only difference is that your church will be a beneficiary because of your church participating in this program.

Here's The Program...
Our program has something for every believer! As said above, it consists of attractive and engaging religiously themed household decorations that are quite modestly priced. The purpose of these items is to add something that many believers' homes don't have enough of these days, namely, Godly reminders, encouragements, and personal declarations that provide "easy to find" and meaningful connections to God. He is the light of the world! Now, we can reflect more of His light right at home and, where better?!
Also, among the unique faith-based merchandise that we are offering is some all new, very special music. Today, for the most part, so much of what we hear and see through the media is to say the least, NOT uplifting. For believers, and maybe others who would like to actually add something spiritual, uplifting and positive to their "during the week" daily lives, a new option is now available! Powerful and familiar music of God's love that's not your "typical" Sunday music. Rather, some of the truly powerful and uplifting music of God presented in a fresh, new, "laid back music for everyday" sort of way. The kind of music that makes you feel both BETTER, STRONGER, and more CONFIDENT every time you listen!
Financially, wholesale pricing leaves lots of room for impressive gains. Worth mentioning is the fact that there is NO FINANCIAL RISK at all. Just obtain an order count, collect funds and receive merchandise. There's zero risk of being left with unwanted inventory!
Easy To Do? Yes!
The people who will participate in your fundraiser will certainly come from your congregation, their families, and the surrounding community. There is no "high pressure" anything, of any kind related to this! Start your program at any time of the year. For those starting late summer or early fall, the simple kick off message for the church email, bulletin insert, letter, or social media mention could go something like this:
"Mostly everyone is going to buy Christmas presents for Christmas this year. Our church is undertaking a special fundraiser to help quickly raise $ (DETERMINE and STATE AMOUNT) needed funds for XYZ which will benefit all members of our church family and the community that we serve. Probably, all of you already know about this need already. If not, you know now. Solving this problem for our church will be now be a little easier for all of us that it may have otherwise been.....
We're not asking for any contributions to this fundraiser! You heard right! All we're asking (and hoping) is that you will look at the website we have for our fundraiser and if you can, shop first from that site for Christmas. You'll find a nice Christmas surprise or two that carries Christian messages that actually will fit very nicely into a variety of gift giving situations. The website has some truly visually inspiring and unique, faith-based merchandise that is not available in stores. Attractive and engaging decorative items for our homes... that will also nourish and remind us daily of who we are as Christians. Last but not least, you'll find some brand new, uplifting music that is surprisingly great for around the house. This "every day" music about God's love for us will help you and your whole family to take on a "daily armor" that will leave you feeling stronger, more confident, and more powerful as believers. There's music for Christmas and also for year long daily encouragement. (The music that you'll see on the website is already available in major stores and we can get it quite reasonably both digitally and on traditional CDs All albums have their own websites with liner notes and sample clips.)
After you see the website, I'm sure that you'll see the appeal of the household items, maybe for yourself or as gifts to others close to you. The music options, it turns out, can work in a lot of different gifting situations! If you have need for "token" gifts, here's a great list of ideas for reference purposes.
Again, there's no pressure to do this but, this program certainly holds the potential to help us raise the money that we need without anyone spending any money that they otherwise wouldn't. Based on some quick calculations, if most of the families in our church would be able to identify the need for only about X items, we would meet our goal and then some.
Please take just a moment and have a look at the website. It is aptly named... www.WeAnswerTheCall.org
With God's help, I know that we can do this and I hope and pray that we will. Over the weeks ahead, I'll provide you (maybe in church bulletin, via email list, etc.) with an update on how we're doing.. Of course, I'm available for any questions. If possible, I'd like to have our final order together by DATE so that we get everything in plenty of time for Christmas Of course, please feel free to share the web page with your friends and social media people since our church does have many friends who certainly may want to help us."
A Quick Final Note
After announcing the fundraiser to your congregation, ideally in multiple ways, the only other thing to do is keep people informed, remind them of what's at stake, let them know how the group is doing compared to goal and, of course, thank them for giving you their support and their order!. Based on your particular situation and the speed and type of the response that you get back in the ensuing weeks, we're happy to help you with any follow up ideas and the ultimate timing of when to "draw the line," call it a day, and count up the blessings.
The above example centered on Christmas. This program can run any time of the year as well and in conjunction with your own events!
May God Bless You For Stepping Up To This Worthwhile and Modest Challenge!
Without People Like You, Churches in America Would Not Even Be Where They Are Today! So, Thank You Indeed!
