ECV Partners

As we shared at our Sunday Gathering last week: 

In order to seize a unique opportunity we have as a young church to commit ourselves to the advancement of God's Kingdom beyond our own community, we have decided to commit $1000/month of the Elm City Vineyard's budget (about 30%) to what we're calling Elm City Vineyard Partners: organizations—either "Christian" or "secular"—that are doing God's work here in New Haven and around the world.

To identify these partners, we'd like your help. Do you know of a group doing great work that advances God's purposes who could use some financial support? Maybe you work for such an organization. Let us know by submitting an ECV Partnership form by April 1st at 9am. (The trustees and the leaders of the local and global outreach teams will be meeting April 1st to select the partnerships we will pursue for the 08-09 fiscal year.)

We are really excited to see what God will do through these partnerships—both from the work that will happen as a result of the finances we'll be able to give and from the relationships that will develop.

(Want to know more about how the money you give to the Elm City Vineyard is used? Check out this previous post (be sure to look at the pdf referred to in the post), and this one, and stay tuned for more...)
