A Caring and Giving Congregation Reaches Out in Ministry with Time and Talents
The point is this: the one who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and the one who sows bountifully will also reap bountifully. Each of you must give as you have made up your mind, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. And God is able to provide you with every blessing in abundance, so that by always having enough of everything, you may share abundantly in every good work. II Corinthians 9:6-9
He scatters abroad, he gives to the poor; his righteousness endures forever. Psalm 112:9
