Build to Reach resources C3 Church Ryde’s ability to reach and build beyond ourselves.

This giving is above our weekly worship giving (tithing) and gleaning (giving smaller amounts to the poor and those in need). It is giving that focuses on extending the Kingdom work of the Lord. This giving includes paying off borrowed funds for our church building in Ryde – and other buildings we will need to purchase for our church plants. These buildings and ministries are at the core of reaching our local and global community and leaving a permanent Christian heritage for future generations to reach people.

The following pages list all the activities that Build to Reach giving funds, but as always, for us the greatest importance is the love that is expressed in your giving.

“For what counts is faith expressing itself through love” (Gal 5:6) – it is the love of God that motivates us to give.

How To Get Involved


Prayerfully consider the amount of giving that is appropriate for you.

This should be your first step in becoming involved in partnering with Build to Reach. Pray for both faith and wisdom
in making your decision.

“Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God
loves a cheerful giver.” – 2 Corinthians 9:7 [NLT] 


Make your commitment to the Build to Reach Foundation.

In June, you will have an opportunity to complete a commitment card during the services. Alternatively, if you are
unable to attend church, you can obtain a commitment card anytime from the Church Office.


Consider how you will fulfil your commitment.

You will have several options available to you:
Make a regular weekly or monthly contribution over the year, or one lump sum before June 2018. Regular giving
can be easier to manage, is rewarding and quickly builds up over time, as you can see below:

$20 week = $86 month = $1,040 year
$80 week = $346 month = $4,160 year
$300 week = $1,300 month = $15,000 year
$1,000 week = $4,332 month = $52,000 year

Paul suggested to the early church:
“… Each of you should put aside some amount of money in relation to what you have earned and save it for
this offering. Don’t wait until I get there and try to do it all once.” – 1 Corinthians 16:1-2 [NLT]


Regularly pray into your commitment.

Place your statement of commitment in a place where you and your family can see it and pray regularly for it.
