The Commitment

Reach is a two-year spiritual growth and generosity effort that will stretch us to grow our generosity together, as God’s people, to $1.5 million over the next two years.  This includes funding for ongoing ministry for two years of $1.0 million plus $500,000 of additional investments as we Reach Up, Over, and Out  in South Windsor, greater Hartford and beyond.

                                                      The Opportunity to Reach Up, Over, and Out.

  • Continue to enhance worship through a vibrant music ministry
  • Invest in technology and the arts to enrich worship in an ever changing digital and visual world

REACH OVER in LOVE: $160,000

                                                                                       The Challenge
We encourage you to prayerfully and fervently seek our Lord’s will and desire for a generous, intentional and cheerful response to God’s love as we seek to extend our Reach together.

To guide your prayerful consideration of this opportunity, a gift guide is included with a commitment card.   This guide illustrates possible responses to God’s generosity that will help to resource the vision for accelerating our church’s impact, over the next two years here in South Windsor and beyond as we Reach Up, Over, and Out.

You may have received a commitment card with a return envelope.  (see a sample here)  More are available at church.  You can also complete one online here.  Commitments are confidential and will only be seen by our finance team (Financial Secretary and Financial Officer)
These two years will be spent Reaching Up in Faith, Reaching Over in Love, and Reaching Out with Hope in our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Our prayer is that this initiative will help every individual and family at Our Savior passionately pursue Christ as one. We invite you to ask God to show you how He is calling you to Reach!
