Hopefully you are thinking about a gift towards the Lee Abbey weekend, and excited at the notion of our entire church family joining in because the cost is covered!
In the Kingdom of God, we see that generosity is a response to his grace, it’s a cultural hallmark of his kingdom. Generosity empowers, enables and encourages, whether we are giving money, time, love, possessions or energy away.
Matts in LA 2019, provides an opportunity to be generous with our money, to joyfully give because we want to see God's Kingdom grow.
It promises to be a time of refreshment, renewal, reconnection with each other and with God. A time of getting to know one another and building unity in our church. We don't want anyone to miss out. Everyone is invited to come!
May God bless us with overflowing and joyful generosity.
Here are some ways you can do that...
