"IT IS IN GIVING THAT WE RECEIVE"
All that we are and all that we have are because of the grace of God. There are many things we have in our lives that we should be thankful for every day. We have our family, our friends, our health, our faith, a job, a home, food on the table, and clothes to wear. For all that God has given us, He asks that we dedicate a portion of these gifts to serve those in need, to strengthen our own faith community and to be a faithful steward to help fulfill God’s plan.
Pray to God, asking for wisdom to understand the truth that your treasure here on earth is a gift from Him. Knowing this in your heart will change your life forever. The giving of your treasure to God as a gift of thanks to Him is a personal gift between you and God. Scripture tells us a tithe, 10% of your earnings, is an acceptable way to give back to God.
You can give in person, or you can donate via the link at the bottom of this page.
We, as a community of faith, must remember that we cannot give what we do not have. In order for us to welcome others into the life of the Church, we first need to make sure that our spiritual lives are properly in order. To become a more prayerful person, take inventory of how you spend the 168 hours in the week. Are you taking time to talk to God in prayer, to speak with Him as you would a friend? Are you seeking His truth through reading the scriptures? Will you make Him first on your priority list so that you are able to give to others from the graces He has given you?
All of us have been blessed with various talents, whether we are aware of it or not, or whether we have developed our talents or not. Of course, it is usually not possible to develop all of our talents. But, ideally, we can and should develop some of them and use them wisely to bless the communities we belong to.
To find out ways you can share your Time and Talent with your church family, contact the church office.
