One Great Hour of Sharing
Food Bank donations
Lightly used medical equipment for our Lending Library
Your Tithes and your Offerings
Requests for donations in the Church happen year around but even more so during our seasonal holidays. While that’s “the nature of the beast” in all non-profits, the Church hopes to instill in its members “the knowledge that all gifts to the Church will be used in gratitude to God in thanksgiving for all of God’s generosity.” (The Rev. Rosemary C. Mitchell. See article below)
Over the next few weeks we want everyone to pay attention as we start reporting on the results of your donations AND ESPECIALLY try to say thank you for what we are doing with them to the Glory of God and God’s abundant generosity towards us.
As an introduction, please read the following article from the PC(USA)’s Mission Engagement & Support program. And thank you for all you do!
Saying ‘thank you’?
In thanksgiving for all God’s generosity, we might consider drafting a new thank you note
“We affirm and recognize your gift as your thank you to our God, from whom all blessings flow. Because your gift joins with the gifts of the people of God called Presbyterians, together we promise that your gift will be used with energy, intelligence, imagination and love. As God’s partners in Creation and the hands and feet of Christ, we will repair the breaches in God’s Creation and in our relationships with one another. As God’s faithful people, may we all live our lives as one never-ending thank you.”
