Here is the March update for The Crowded House Network!
- House Church UpdatesThe Crowded House Network had a busy February.
The biggest news is that a new house church was launched in February! This church consists of young families and it was a great joy to share a meal with the families as the sound of children playing was heard throughout the house.
We also had our second Family Reunion, which is our monthly all-network gathering. A large group gathered in the Penn home with new faces and old friends being present with one another.
Our current network has three house churches that are fully committed and two-three other groups that are considering joining the network.
- Family Mission UpdateOne of our main goals as a network is to serve each other and to serve our community through monthly partnerships with local organizations. For the months of March and April we are partnering with Ronald McDonald House in Central Florida. We will be providing meals and care packages each month for the families who are reside in the homes as they care for their ill children.
Pray that as we enter into this space that we will reveal the work God is already doing at Ronald McDonald House, that families would find hope through our presence with them, and that we would be light during a time of darkness for these families
- Financial UpdateWe have been blown away by the generosity by the people we have been able to share our story with!
Fundraising is a difficult task but we have found great encouragement through your generosity!
We are hovering around 45% funded for 2017. We have reached this level of funding through both one-time gifts and recurring monthly giving.
Many of you have been waiting for the recurring monthly option to be available.
I am glad to let you know that the ability for recurring monthly giving is now available here: https://www.truenorthfoundation.org/crowdedhouse/
- Prayer RequestsPlease pray for the following items:
1. Continued growth of the network
2. Networking opportunities with other missional churches
3. Financial Provision – 100% raised by June 1, 2017
Thank you for your continued prayer and support of The Crowded House Network!
