Introducing a New G2G2 Initiative: Community Connect, By Lucas McCann

The many gifts, talents and skills found among Columbians is exceptional and it is a blessing to see how God uses these unique qualities for His purpose and glory. The G2G/G2G2 Team is proud to introduce a new initiative designed to enable increased giving by Columbians while simultaneously strengthening our ties with the community around us. This new initiative is called Community Connect. more...

Q&A With Cliff & Sandy Perrin

Choosing to be part of “opening a new front door” has been a unique journey to each participating Columbian. God has called us to come together for this great task, but the ways and reasons for which He calls us is different; and that is what makes G2G/G2G2 a powerful testimony of what it looks like to be whole-life disciples.more...

In Case You Missed it!

Columbia’s first “Front Door Sunday” was a success! The first Sunday of each month has been designated “Front Door Sunday” and will give Columbians an opportunity to receive updated campaign information, hear encouraging testimonies about how God is working through our joyful giving and to pray for God’s continued guidance as we see this work through to completion. Front Door Shares will also be made available for purchase, so be sure to stop by the table in the foyer or Gathering Grounds to purchase a share (as a reminder, Front Door Shares can also be purchased online or by calling the church).more...

Front Door Shares: Why Buy?

After G2G and G2G2, the Columbia family is so close to reaching our pledge goal of $10.5 million in order to break ground.  To close the remaining gap of $1.1 million, we’re selling Front Door Shares.more...

What Now?

Reflecting on the past three years through both phases of the building campaign, G2G and G2G2, it’s easy to become overwhelmed in consideration of the many blessings that have been bestowed upon individuals and on Columbia.  I can’t help but consider, what Jesus taught in Luke 12:48b, “From everyone who has been given much, much will be demanded; and from the one who has been entrusted with much, much more will be asked.”more...

Victory!

Victory Sunday was on October 16 and there was a lot to celebrate! As of today (10/19/16), we have pledged $9.4M of our $10.5M goal and we have over $4.6M of our $4.5M goal already in the bank; only a small gap in the pledged amount remains.  This means that as soon as we hit the pledged goal, we can break ground on the new building and we will be one step closer to “opening our new front door”.more...
