Welcome to the homepage for our Celebrate A New Beginning love offering and campaign! This is our capital campaign that is enabling us to continue ministry as we move to our new location. In the articles in this section, you will find a great deal of information about the campaign, including information about Love Offering Sunday (November 14, 2010).
Use the links in the right-hand column of this page to be directed to the appropriate information.
Much of this information is available in print form in a brochure that was distributed to our church family. Contact the church office with any questions or to request a copy of the brochure.
A New Beginning
What a rich history the Lord’s church here has enjoyed! In 1907, fifty-four pioneer members met in the “Old Temperance Hall” and called themselves Christiansburg Baptist Church. Two years later, they relocated to a new facility on Main Street and later changed their name to Main Street Baptist Church. Through over 100 years of ministry, several thousand people have come to know Christ, the Gospel has been shared around the world, and God has expanded our borders through a variety of new ministries. We now stand expectantly at the doorway of a new beginning. God has graciously given us a new location and a new vision for reaching our neighbors and the nations with the message of life and hope in Jesus Christ. Our new facility at 1640 Peppers Ferry Road is nearing completion, and we as God’s people must continue to give sacrificially to finish this phase of the task. As we begin this new journey, please pray about the role God wants you to play in completing the project and facilitating the new opportunities for ministry at the new location.
About the Campaign
Unlike previous capital campaigns, this campaign will be limited to a one-year commitment. Our campaign committee has sensed God’s leading to develop multiple one-year Love Offering Campaigns to help us move through the process of completing the master plan for the PeppersFerry property. Our “Celebrate A New Beginning” campaign will kick off with a special series of messages during the month of October.
It will culminate with a special “Love Off ering” service on Sunday November 14, 2010. Each family will have the opportunity to make a one-time Love Offering gift as well as a one-year commitment to be fulfilled by October, 31, 2011.
