Rejoicing in the Harvest Offering

The family of Grace responded with great generosity to this year’s Harvest Offering last Sunday.  We received over $79,800.00 in money and commitments thus far.  Our plan is simple:  half of what we receive we will give to the Lord by giving it away–through missions projects and community projects we hope to bless God’s people and expand the reach of His love through the gospel.  The other half will be used to deal with pressing needs for the ministry here that were not able to be funded through our regular giving this year.  A task team of deacons has been chosen to work on finalizing these details, and the full proposal for disbursement will come before the congregation before the end of the year.

We are also thankful that the church family has exercised its faithful obedience in regular giving as well–the past two weeks have been the best start of a month we have had this year.  If God is moving in our hearts to make us more generous, that is not only a blessing, it means we can be a greater blessing to others, too.
