90 Days of Generosity...

 

God says in 2 Corinthians that He "loves a cheerful giver."  We've got cheerful people all over the place as expressions of generosity abound throughout the congregation.  What a JOY!

 

It was over 6 months ago that we first began praying about 90 Days of Generosity.  Through the summer and into the first weeks of fall, our staff got excited about how God was working in the hearts of the "First Family" as plans were made and projects and opportunities were identified.  Already we are seeing the fruits of generosity in the joyful embrace of serving our Savior.

 

In our Children's ministry, over 200 "leaves" identifying projects have been taken.  Take a walk down the Children's ministry area and see reports back on how these precious little ones are showing the love of Jesus in their families and in their relationships.

 

In the Youth ministry, some of these teens have taken one project to completion and are already starting their second or third act of generosity in their schools or neighborhoods.

 

Adult small groups have gotten creative as they have performed ministry within military relationships, providing food for the hungry, or embraced an opportunity within their work and home environments.

 

Our intention is to "make God famous as we use our time, talents, and treasures for His Kingdom".  We are challenging ourselves to PRAY MORE, DO MORE, GIVE MORE.  The "side benefit" of this...the joy of giving.  How great is that!

 

MORE...

Grace and peace,

 

Pastor Ray
