Putting on Compassion

from Rebekah LeClaire I want to tell you a bit about our family story. I won’t subject you to the painful details, but I can tell you that our story is a story of Darkness, a story of Cruelty, a story of Abandonment.  For long years, Despair was lurking at the back door trying to barge his way in. Then God showed up. Or more accurately, I noticed Him in ways I never had before, and He answered with a…

More important than the ministry program’s need for funds is the Christian’s need to give. We believe that everything we own belongs to God and that God calls us to give back to him a significant portion of what He has entrusted to us. We do this primarily through our giving to the church, and regular, systematic giving is important as we live out our faith. Tithing (giving 10% of our income) or proportional giving is the practice that best demonstrates this practice.
