Frequently Asked Questions
How can I participate?
Participation will look different for each person. We are asking that each person commits to praying, engaging, and contributing to the FORWARD initiative. Pray that God directs the path of MBC and leads each of us to a place of heightened generosity and obedience. Talk with your family about what it means to engage more fully. Commit to being a generous steward of your resources.
How can I give?
Because FORWARD is a one-fund initiative, you can give funds through each of our standard giving options. Giving can be mailed to the church office or placed in the offering box in the lobby. Funds can be donated through our online giving platform. For individuals or families who would like to give through stocks, securities, or legacy gifts, please review our giving website or email Kris Haugen at firstname.lastname@example.org.
How long is my commitment?
We are asking everyone to make a 24-month commitment from April 2023 to March 2025. We are praying that God will use this time as a catalyst toward increased generosity and a lifetime of investing our resources toward the fulfillment of His mission.
What if my financial situation changes in the next two years?
Unforeseen circumstances can lead to a desire to increase your commitment or a need to reduce your giving. You can change your commitment at any time during the 24 months by contacting the church office or emailing forward@ mbctosa.org. We will work with you to adjust your commitment and walk with you should you enter a time of need.
What if I'm new?
If you are new, we invite you into the Meadowbrook family. We believe that real change happens within authentic relationships. To connect and grow in your faith, we encourage you to join a Neighborhood Community and to become involved in this spirit-filled congregation.
Now is a great time to commit to Meadowbrook Church, as we embark on this journey FORWARD. We would love for you to join us as we work to fulfill the mission to which God has called Meadowbrook.
What if I have never given before?
We are all on a journey of generosity. Whether you are just learning to give, or you have been giving sacrificially for a long time, giving is an opportunity to grow closer to God and embrace His will. FORWARD is a call for each of us to develop radical generosity. If you have never given before, this is a chance for you to seek out God’s will for your resources and to respond.
