CURRENT
Impact Initiative 2020

Impact is our annual initiative by which we augment our ability to fund local, national, and international outreach events & strategic partnerships. Below are some of the gospel opportunities we had this year because of our church family’s generous giving.

2020 Impact Goal:
100% Participation

It has been an incredibly difficult year, and being in it together has never been more important. How awesome would it be if everyone who considers Current to be our church community gave something this year?

It has been our heart from the beginning that we partner with other ministries & organizations generously, while we ourselves still receive external support, such that we have it in our DNA to give in increasing measure as we grow. By God’s grace, this is happening, and our impact grows disproportionately every year.

Last December, we set an Impact giving goal of $50,000 which we heartily exceeded together with $81,000 in December 2019 alone. What if this year we give in even greater measure — meeting physical and spiritual needs for those less resourced — all for God’s glory? 100% of Impact goes toward increasing what we are able to do in the surrounding local community, and through non-profit & church plant partnerships. With God’s help, together we can make a far greater impact than we could on our own, much more than might be expected of a relatively young church.

Will you prayerfully consider making a year-end gift above regular giving to increase our kingdom impact in 2021?

Local Partnerships

We seek to meet both physical & spiritual needs, coming alongside local non-profit organizations & ministries to support & augment their initiatives. We do this through giving, serving, and praying.

PROJECT WEHOPE

Serving homeless & at-risk ministries: purchased a mobile restroom when Covid hit, new clothing giveaway to all clients, staff appreciation event, general support for shelter & rehabilitation ministries.

FOSTER THE BAY

Continued financial support for this coalition of churches committed to providing a loving home for every child in foster care. Also had the opportunity to provide Christmas gifts for foster children & families in Santa Clara county.

A BRIGHTER DAY

Keeping at-risk youth out of the juvenile justice system. Christmas gifts for youth and their siblings.

FREEDOM HOUSE

Partnership gift in lieu of their annual fundraiser, canceled due to Covid. (Sadly, this ministry shut down in October, but we’re grateful for five years of partnership helping human trafficking survivors find hope & healing. Please be praying for this ministry in their many transitions.)

CZU COMPLEX WILDFIRE RESPONSE
Bay Area, CA

Gift cards to support displaced families being housed at Santa Cruz Baptist Church.

COVID RESPONSE
Sunnyvale & Mountain View, CA

Grocery cards to Sunnyvale & Mountain View Community Services and the Gateway Community Center’s food pantry to support families in need, as well as significant mask making efforts by our teams in the early stages of Covid.

Church Planting

About ten churches committed to help Current get started five years ago. These churches gave financially, prayed for us regularly, and even came to Mountain View to serve with us when needed. If not for God moving through churches, Current would not be making the impact we see today.

We now have the privilege to pay it forward, and partner with these new churches starting in the Bay Area:

• Bay Area Church Planting Network: general support for a network of plants throughout the bay. Current is a founding church within this new network.
• City Center Church (Berkeley, CA)
• New Valley Church (East San Jose, CA)
• Storyline Church (Oakland, CA) & Keep It Oakland
• Tekoa Church
(San Jose, CA)

Community Events

This year, Current pivoted from our typical in-person block party events and festival booths to Covid-friendly community outreaches — including a Toilet Paper Giveaway, mask making & distribution, Easter Basket giveaway, Pub Trivia Online, & Trunk or Treat.
