3) Rooted & Growing

Rooted & Growing is our capital stewardship campaign focused on the reduction of our mortgages for the sanctuary building in Escondido and the San Marcos campus.  It provides an opportunity for people to contribute above and beyond their normal tithes and offerings to help reduce our indebtedness.  Rooted & Growing is a three year campaign from January 1, 2023 to December 31, 2025.  Thank you for your contributions to this campaign. CLICK HERE to donate to Rooted & Growing.

4) Endowment Fund (Heritage Circle)

This is a wonderful opportunity to look beyond ourselves to future generations who will continue God's vision for our church. The Heritage Circle is a means through which our church has chosen to thank families who have made a direct or planned gift in support of the church's endowment fund.
