17 8/23/ MCC churches led the way through Generous in Faith contributions above and beyond the base 12.5%. These generous contributions provided critical resources to help us meet our ministry goals in We are grateful. You have touched the lives of many.

18 8/23/2012 Together we will: Build capacity so that we can bring training and resources to more MCCers in more locations around the world Continue our focus on our Young Adults, encouraging them and raising them up as they become our future leaders Expand on the communication initiatives begun in 2012 Continue investing in Leadership Development In 2013, we will continue building MCC.

19 8/23/2012 In 2013, Generous in Faith churches will play a vital role in enabling us to continue building MCC. If you are currently a member of a Generous in Faith church….. … we hope your church will continue to contribute to MCC at your current rate or higher.

20 8/23/2012 If your church is not currently a Generous in Faith church… … we invite you to reach and become one in 2013 by continuing your contributions to MCC at 12.5% or higher when the base rate becomes 12.0% in January, 2013.
