Giving increases our faith and proves the Lord’s faithfulness.
FUTURE GROWTH OF AMELIA BAPTIST CHURCH IS UNDERWAY!
The committees that will lead the way in our church’s future growth have now begun to meet! The Capital Fund Campaign met and learned that approximately $40,000 is already needed to fund some site surveys for our additional parking and future building needs.
If you can joyfully help us fund this initial cost, it will be a blessing! Just select “Building Fund-Phase 1” in the DESIGNATED FUND DROPDOWN or note “building fund” on your check or giving envelope.
2 Corinthians 9:6-11 English Standard Version (ESV)
The Cheerful Giver
“The point is this: whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows bountifully will also reap bountifully. Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that having all sufficiency in all things at all times, you may abound in every good work. As it is written, “He has distributed freely, he has given to the poor; his righteousness endures forever.” He who supplies seed to the sower and bread for food will supply and multiply your seed for sowing and increase the harvest of your righteousness. You will be enriched in every way to be generous in every way, which through us will produce thanksgiving to God.”
God set the ultimate example of giving by the sacrificial gift of His own Son (Ephesians 5:2). Every good and perfect gift comes from Him, so the resources with which He has blessed us ultimately belong to Him. It is our responsibility to be good stewards of those resources and give back to the Lord a portion of them, however He may lead.
“Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse,that there may be food in my house. Test me in this,” says the LORD Almighty,“and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessings that you will not have room enough for it.” (Malachi 3:10).
