It's a new year at 127!
Happy New Year from 127 Worldwide!
A new year in October? No, we haven’t lost our minds or our calendars! This year 127 made the decision to switch to a fiscal year running from October 1 through September 30th, and that means that we are celebrating a new year of ministry early this year! With a new year comes some exciting new announcements from 127. Where should I begin?
Over at www.127worldwide.org, you’ll notice that our website has a brand new look. Not only did the website get a facelift, but there are exciting new things under the hood, as well. You’ll find updated content and photos throughout the site, and we’ll be updating the website much more regularly from now on. More content will follow in the weeks and months to come, but for now, feel free to explore and learn more about us.
Another exciting piece under the hood is ROCK RMS. Rock is our new relationship management system and our new website is actually built into it. This means that everyone in our database will be able to have a log in and interact with some pretty useful features such as trip fundraising, updating contact information and more. Rock will allow us to do a better job of maintaining relationships with everyone who wants to be a part of what God is doing through our local partners.
That’s not all, though. Our fearless leader, Sara Beth, has launched her very own podcast this month! Available on Apple Podcasts, Spotify and wherever else podcasts are found, Simply 127 will consist of 20 minute episodes encouraging and equipping us to tangibly live out James 1:27.
Oh yeah, and there’s one more thing! We are excited to launch a brand new giving campaign this month where we are flipping the script on Giving Tuesday. That’s right! Instead of asking you to give to 127 on Giving Tuesday, we are asking you to give early so that we can give our partners a gift of gratitude on Giving Tuesday. Starting today, you can head over to We Give Campaign and give. Every dollar raised between now and December 2nd will be given out to our partners as a gift on Tuesday, December 3rd--Giving Tuesday!
That’s quite a lot of excitement, and we can barely contain it! We’d love for you to help us spread all this exciting news with your circle of friends and family. We couldn’t do what God has called us to do without the amazing network of support that he has provided. We are so excited for you to be a part of the amazing work God is doing through 127's partners, and we are working diligently to connect and equip the global body of Christ to restore hope to orphans, widows, and vulnerable communities.
Looking forward to an exciting year of ministry!
