Where Do My Donations/Gifts To SOSCC.ca Go?
Donations given to “Serving Our Savior Community Church” go directly toward creating and or maintaining its many programs. These programs will encourage people across Canada to have a life long relationship with our Lord. Jesus said’ I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life, no one comes to the Father except by me.
“Everyone here at SOSCC agrees that not one person in heaven will say to them, “I wish you hadn’t inspired me to give so much to the Gospel.” No! In heaven, they will be hugged and thanked for encouraging all Christians to sow big. Why? Because in heaven they’ll truly understand that the only treasure they were able to keep is what they gave away.”
A “TAX RECEPT” will be issued for a donation of 20.00 or more
Your support of “Serving Our Savior Community Church” and its many special programs will help us reach believers and non believers in every province across Canada. With your future help and support, SOSCC.ca plans to expand its reach and provide its great services to Christians around the world.
Pay or give as a tithe.
“He tithes 10 percent of his income to the church”
Many Christians struggle with the issue of tithing. In some churches giving is over-emphasized. At the same time, many Christians refuse to submit to the biblical exhortations about making offerings to the Lord. Tithing/giving is intended to be a joy and a blessing. Sadly, that is sometimes not the case in the church today.
The New Testament talks about the importance and benefits of giving. We are to give as we are able. Sometimes that means giving more than 10 percent; sometimes that may mean giving less. It all depends on the ability of the Christian and the needs of the church. Every Christian should diligently pray and seek God’s wisdom in the matter of participating in tithing and/or how much to give (James 1:5). Above all, all tithes and offerings should be given with pure motives and an attitude of worship to God and service to the body of Christ. “Each man should give what he has decided in his heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver” (2 Corinthians 9:7).
1 Timothy 6:17-19 English Standard Version (ESV)
17- As for the rich in this present age, charge them not to be haughty, nor to set their hopes on the uncertainty of riches, but on God, who richly provides us with everything to enjoy. 18- They are to do good, to be rich in good works, to be generous and ready to share, 19- thus storing up treasure for themselves as a good foundation for the future, so that they may take hold of that which is truly life.
This “Special Offering” is given to the church to honor a loved one. The church will offer up prayers for the person, and (if they have passed on) the “Special Offering” giver will receive a certificate honoring their loved ones life.
The Voula Boyle Project
The Voula Boyle Project is creating “Loving Communities of Hope” where grieving families and individuals are given education, support, counseling, and help to rebuild their lives, as they travel down the road called “Grief.”
“Jesus is the Way, the Truth and the Life”
Your interest in a partnership is evidence of the fact that you believe SOSCC can affect your life, but you also show a desire to help someone else and believe this ministry can help provide that help. So together, through partnership, we can reach thousands of people with the nearly-too-good-to be- true news of the Gospel.
SOSOC believes the message the Lord has entrusted them to deliver will change the way the body of Christ perceives God, and it doesn’t matter how important the message is or how well we deliver it, until the message is sent, no one will hear.
Partnership makes the delivery possible.
The Apostle Paul understood his role as the messenger, but he also understood that partnership was not only what he received but what his partners received as well. In Philippians 4:19 Paul wrote; “And my God shall supply all your needs according to His riches in glory in glory by Christ Jesus.” This was written by Paul to his partners. The Philippians were the only ones who supported him after he left town. In fact, they wanted to give more but didn’t have the opportunity. Paul was saying that there is a special provision for those who recognize the power in partnership.
For SOSCC, it will be about “you” supporting “our” ministry. So if we are partners, then you can consider SOSCC your ministry (church), and together we will accomplish God’s will. In fact, SOSCC will be an extension of you and your obedience to God. Like Paul, SOSCC is just the messenger that God has called for a specific purpose. If we fulfill that call, the fruit will be evident to everyone, and if we don’t, then God will find another messenger and direct your support to that person or mission.
SOSCC considers it an honor to partner with you in this vision of teaching the truth of the Gospel to the body of Christ in North America and around the world.
Thank you for your support
Let’s walk together into the future, “Serving Our Savior”
SENIORS (50 plus) LEAD THE WAY
Baby Boomers, Seniors and Empty Nesters have come to the point in their lives where they think less about keeping up with their neighbors and friends by accumulating more material things and have begun pondering more about how to enrich to their lives and the lives of others. Time magazine reported that Boomers volunteer at a rate of 33 percent, contrasted with 24 percent for those 65 and older. Last year, 65.4 million people did volunteer work, but 75 million volunteers will be needed by 2016, the magazine reported.
SOSCC will also offer “mission vacations” This catch phrase describes the increasingly popular phenomenon called “vacations with a purpose.” Instead of heading to a resort or a favorite vacation spot, you can experience the joy of working in places that don’t have resorts, hotels, and vacation destinations which will be more purposeful and satisfying. The objective is to help missionaries with some sort of a construction project, a calling that is both extremely joyous and rewarding.
SOSCC has recognized this as well. As hundreds of thousands of new volunteer missionaries rise from the ranks of retired Baby Boomers, they will challenge the status quo of missions and how organizations will respond to them. SOSCC is positioning itself to usher in a new era of Christian service in missions by involving thousands of Boomers in the acceleration of Bible translation worldwide.
“Part of our investment in short-term missions is the creation of our new “Volunteer Mobilization Centers” across Canada. These 16 to 20,000- squares-foot facilities in major cities in all provinces will be used to mobilize thousands of volunteers heading out on mission vacations.” These facilities will be “Designed and built primarily by volunteers, the Center will service a growing tide of Canadians seeking to use their free time more productively.”
Through its travel program, SOSCC intends to bring its members closer together and make them much more vibrant.
A few more reasons why SOSCC created a travel program are,
- A travel ministry deepens our faith in God.
- It enriches personal relations with Jesus.
- It builds fellowship and enlivens a community.
- It enables its members to experience the Christian faith and sites firsthand.
Our missions program will only succeed if we all participate by volunteering and supporting through your time, resources and of course donating money, because money in the right hands can change the world.
Our Lord said, “What you give and do for others, you do and give to Me”
