As a member of the Stewardship Committee for the past two years, I have had the privilege of seeing the giving pattern of our church members change, for the better, and heard stories of how individuals were led to increase their giving. I have gained an indepth knowledge of the ministries in which our church is involved and am more convinced than ever that we are making a difference in our community and beyond. We are doing this due to the generosity of our members and their dedication to furthering the gospel. I am excited to be a part of this endeavor and happily give my tithe regularly.
Although each ministry has its’ own unique way of spreading God’s love, I am particularly drawn to the two co-ops with which we partner. I love doing hands-on work and being able to see, first-hand, how we can make a difference in the lives of others. Part of our budget and Global Missions offering go to these co-ops and, therefore, offer opportunity for us to be engaged with them.
My prayer is that we will continue to “step up” and continue to make a difference.
