OCCUPY NORTH GA
Unlike the current “Occupy” movement in our nation, OCCUPY NORTH GEORGIA is NOT a protest. Occupy means for Northlake to be about the Lord’s Business. Luke 19:13 says [KJV] “OCCUPY till I come.” Luke 19:13 in the NKJV says “DO BUSINESS till I come.” Jesus says that the Fathers Business is to “seek and save that which was lost” (Luke 19:10). It is our prayer that the Lord will find us faithfully “occupying”… doing His business when He comes.
Currently at Northlake, we are “occupying” over 80% of our education space. And according to church growth experts, “when you are 80% full, you are Full!” Therefore, Northlake Baptist Church has voted unanimously to build a 6,000 square foot Multi-Purpose Building to enable the church to continue to grow. The new building will provide much needed space for Youth activities, Sunday School, Wednesday Night Supper, Sonshiners meetings, and access to more restrooms near the Worship Center.
If you believe that the Lord has established Northlake in a strategic place to “Occupy North Georgia” till He Comes – please pray and consider giving generously to the Building fund. Our goal is not equal giving but equal sacrifice to see our vision become a reality.
If you attend Northlake Regularly – you know we rarely preach on Money – mainly because Northlake has always been faithful to give proportionally, regularly, and generously to World Missions, North American Missions, and to the Local Ministries of Northlake Baptist Church. But as we start a Building Project we probably need to clarify what the Bible says about giving.
By Giving – we mean - Tithe’s and Offerings. According to the Bible – THE TITHE is 10% of your Income. Anything MORE than the Tithe is called an OFFERING. Anything LESS than the Tithe is called “ROBBING GOD” (Malachi 3:8).
We need your TITHE to continue to go into the General Fund. Tithes (10% of your Income) goes to support our Daily, Weekly, Monthly, Yearly Operating Expenses. The Tithe supports the Budgeted Missions & Ministries of Northlake Baptist Church. We will need your Special Offerings – ABOVE the TITHE – to go into the “Building Fund.”
