G2G2 Giving Period Has Begun!

Thank you for being an integral part of “opening a new front door to Metro Washington and the world” through your participation in Columbia’s building campaign. God has given us a great task, and it takes all of us working together to see it through to completion.  It’s a joy to be walking alongside one another as we serve the Lord.

G2G and G2G2 have been great successes, as we’ve pledged $9.4 million, over $4.5 million of which has already been given.  With only a relatively small $1.1 million gap remaining between our goal ($10.5M) and current pledged amount, we are overjoyed to take the next steps as we continue to work towards opening our new front door.

The G2G2 giving period officially started on January 1, 2017!  As you and your family give in fulfillment of your pledge, we’d like to offer some details regarding how to give.

Giving can be accomplished in multiple ways.

Online: Select the option for G2G or for G2G2 on Columbia’s online giving page.

Envelope: Use your personalized envelopes or those located on the backs of the pews to give by cash or check.  Please clearly indicate on the envelope (and check, if appropriate) that this giving is intended for G2G or G2G2.  You can place the envelope in an offering basket/plate during worship services, drop it in the Tithes and Offerings box located at the Information Center, or mail it to the Columbia finance office.

Bank-Issued Check: If you don’t use an envelope, and a check is coming from your financial institution, please indicate clearly on the memo or subject line that the contribution is for G2G or G2G2.

Txt2Give: Text the word GIVE to 703-935-1486, follow the prompts, and set up a one-time or recurring gift. Again, please specify that the gift is for G2G or G2G2.

Securities (Stocks/Mutual Funds): Contact Donna Groover, Director of Finance & HR, at dgroover@columbiabaptist.org or 703-534-5740 x211 for information.

Purchase a Front Door Share: Shares can still be purchased through Donna Groover or you can stop by the G2G2 Information Booth in Gathering Grounds on the 3rd Sunday of every month!

Throughout the giving period, there will be many special giving opportunities in which all Columbians will be invited to participate.  Please be on the lookout for information of upcoming events, and plan to participate in the fun!

As our calling as whole-life disciples is the heart of G2G2, we recently sent out “Family Giving Guides” to help you facilitate meaningful conversations and encourage joyful giving as your family and friends fulfill their pledges.  We are confident the Lord is at work in the life of each giver, and we really want to hear and include your story, so please share it as we “spur one another on” (Hebrews 10:24)! If you didn’t receive a guide, stop by the G2G2 Information Booth to pick one up!

We continue to find encouragement and inspiration as we work as a unified community in serving those whom God has placed in our ministry path.  “Opening a new front door to metro Washington and the world” is simply the next step to God’s unfolding plan for Columbia, but it is a big one.  We’re so grateful you’ve taken your own next step to be a part of this Kingdom work!
