$5 Give Club
Five dollars can change the world!
Here at SOJO, we want to make an impact not only through the people in our church but through the organizations in our local community. We want to come alongside those in our community who are trying to make a difference. This is why we created the $5 give club. Think about it... How many of us give away $5 almost everyday frivolously. Whether it is a $5 coffee, $5 scratch-off, $5 burger, $5 drink, $5 on amazon or target.
What if... Every person at SOJO took one of those $5 and pointed it at an opportunity to bless someone they may never see, touch or hear; but, knowing that with the efforts of a couple of hundred people combined we were able to make a true difference in and through our community. We as a church can partner with all types of organizations in our region and bless them so they can continue to bless others in and through our community.
Every month we will expose you to a non-profit in our region who is making a difference. We then will ask everyone to give $5 and we can then bless this organization to help them fulfill their mission in our community. This is a really cool opportunity for us as a church to help those who may not ever come through our doors.
September Partner: Ground 40
Ground 40 exists to provide practical and spiritual guidance to those transitioning back into the community. We believe in order for this to happen successfully, a biblical foundation is key, as well as the support of a healthy environment practicing accountability with an emphasis on discipleship and community. Ground 40 was birthed during a time when our founders saw that the need for a safe, faith-based facility designed to meet the needs of men trying to break free from addiction were not being met. With personal experiences in the addiction and recovery process, our founders started Ground 40 to help these men, and grew it into the ministry it is today. As our nonprofit continues to expand, our goal remains the same, and it is to disciple these men.
