Online Commitment

Dear SRC Family,

“Let’s Go!” This is what baseball fans shout when they have the winning run on base; this is what pro football fanatics yell when their team drafts the best college quarterback; this is what Ukrainians cry when they get news that their brave military is pushing the Russian Army back; this is what Citrus Countians will excitedly exclaim when the news of a new Target and Starbucks is eclipsed with the announcement of a coming Chick-fil-A!

“Let’s Go!” is also what Jesus declares at the apex of redemptive history. Having put on flesh and entered the world, conquered Satan, vanquished sin and death, he gathers his disciples and tells them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me.  Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations.” Jesus not only gives us our marching orders, but he then ascends to the throne at the right hand of God and tells his timid apostles that he is investing them with the authority of heaven, of God himself, to accomplish their mission.


So, “Let’s Go” Seven Rivers. Let’s take advantage of this unprecedented opportunity. All the places people look to for security and stability are unraveling. Our country is divided—our culture is unmoored, our political leadership is impotent, our economy is floundering and families are failing to flourish. This is our moment to go to our broken world with the healing love of Jesus. “Let’s Go!” – strengthen families, disciple children, love our neighbors, model community, mend the world and declare the healing love of Jesus to people desperate for it!

Seven Rivers family, the “Let’s Go!” initiative is a challenge to collectively proceed, move, advance, and act as Jesus has commanded and empowered us to do. I can’t wait to see what God is going to do in my heart and yours and in the Seven Rivers family as we charge forward together!

Let’s Go!

Ray Cortese


Our vision is not to just “do church,” be self-congratulatory over past successes, or be a church just for us and our needs. Our vision is to heed Jesus’ command to “go.” What is it we intend to aggressively go and do?

  • Preach Grace. Proclaim the healing love of Jesus.
  • Make Disciples.  Anchor new believers in biblical truth.
  • Prioritize Next Generation.  Capture the hearts and minds of our children with the beauty of Jesus.
  • Model Community.  Be the family everyone longs to be a part of.
  • Mend the World. Make everything that’s ugly beautiful.
  • Strengthen Families. Restore homes, marriages and sexuality according to the Creator’s design.


  • Financially fund the mission. Take advantage of the once-in-a-generation opportunity created by our community’s explosive growth.
  • Grow the church.  Welcome new residents. Preach the gospel. Mentor those who believe.
  • Finish the sanctuary building renovation. Renovate the Student Ministry Building. Pay off our new property. Plan for the building of a state-of-the-art high school.  
  • Give our children Jesus.  Fund the continued growth of Seven Rivers Student and Children’s Ministries, Seven Rivers Christian School, Seven Rivers Preschool and Camp Seven Rivers.
  • 100% participation in “Let’s Go.”  Every member shares in the joy of lavishly giving to Jesus’ beautiful family.



Pray for God to provide, to be shown faithful, to do more than we could ask or imagine (Luke 11 & 18).


Come to worship each weekend, ask God what it is you need to hear and learn, commit to being open to all that God asks of you.  Give yourself to him fully and faithfully (Matthew 6.33)!


Ask God to show you what generous, faith-stretching giving looks like for you and your family.  Wrestle with and decide how much you’re going to give and then give cheerfully.  Give expecting God to use your giving for kingdom growth (Corinthians 9.6-8).


Celebrate what God does in our church and our lives through Let’s Go as we seek to honor him with our resources, service and worship, together with one another (Psalm 95.2; Galatians 5.13-14).

In Matthew 6, Jesus says, where your money is, there your heart will be also. We want everyone who calls this church ‘home’ to be growing more like Jesus. If we are growing in Christ, we should also be growing in generosity. We believe that Christian generosity begins with giving to the local church and that all Christ-followers should have a plan to support their local church. Whether you are considering giving for the first time, or you have faithfully given for years, we believe there is a step you can take to grow in generosity. As we grow in generosity, we not only increase our giving, but also our Kingdom impact. We want to equip you to grow in generosity, so we’ve put together this guide to help you along the way. 


I am giving for the first time. 

Growing in generosity always begins with a first step. Taking that first step is never easy, but required if you are going to grow. If you have never given before, take your first step by giving today.


I have given before, but not consistently. 

If you have given something in the past, but done so inconsistently, often times your next step is to begin giving regularly. A great way to move from giving occasionally to giving consistently is to set up a recurring gift through your financial institution.


I give consistently, but not as much as I could. 

The consistent giver has taken steps to give regularly. They are committed to active growing. At this stage, our next step of growing in generosity is to give in a way that reflects the generosity we have been shown through Christ. A next step to grow in generosity is to evaluate the level at which you are giving.


I faithfully give 10% of my income. 

Tithing is simply giving back the first 10% of what God has given us. The tithing giver has gone from giving consistently to giving intentionally in a way that models a heart of generosity. Growing in generosity means looking for additional ways to further God’s Kingdom with your resources.


I give more than 10%, prioritizing God’s Kingdom over mine. 

The sacrificial giver is someone who gives beyond what is normal or expected. When we grow into sacrificial giving, we begin to choose God’s Kingdom over our own comforts. Sacrificial givers show the transforming work Jesus has done in their lives by giving in a way that impacts our lifestyle. 


I give to make a Kingdom impact that outlasts me. 

The legacy giver believes that every resource, whether financial or otherwise, is a gift from God to be used for his Kingdom purposes. Legacy givers intentionally give by acknowledging their generosity will outlast them, and everything in their lives is to be freely and generously given for God’s work. Legacy giving leaves an impact which outlasts the givers and serves the Kingdom beyond their lifetimes.
