A good example to this though is our sign project. We know that based on our regular offerings that we could not afford the gorgeous sign out front. But we also know that in order for God to be able to change the hearts of others, we must 1st get them into church. The sign gives us a means to accomplish our goal!
But like the Macedonian churches, we don’t have the funds. Our challenge became for everyone to put a little away each week so that once per month, through a special offering above our regular offering there would be enough to pay the monthly payment.
Based on our love for God and our concern for others, we will accomplish our goal.
