As I spoke with everyone last week, we have experienced a drop in giving and an increase in expenses over the last year.
I thank God that He has provided a debt-free building which is now purpose built and practical for great ministry! It has been through the generosity of many people over the 46 years that this church has been established, that we now have this great building. But more importantly a place we can launch ministry into our local community.
I am encouraged by Paul’s words to the Corinthian church, “In the midst of a very severe trial, their overflowing joy and their extreme poverty welled up in rich generosity. “ (2 Cor 8:2)
I’m sure we all want to see this Church continue to be a shining light in these dark times we find ourselves. Like all of us we need money to pay for gas, electricity, insurances, telephone, cleaning and the list goes on. The Church is no different. Let’s have a spirit of generosity to not only help keep the church running but be an overflowing of blessing into the community!
