We are born selfish. One of the first words we teach our children is the word “share”. It does not come naturally to them!
But we are born-again generous! God is a giver and everyone who shares His nature has a heart to give.
Around the middle of each year the people of Calvary make a heart-felt commitment to give – over and above our normal giving – towards the expansion of our ministries in each location.
Vision and resource cause expansion. We thank God that He has given us great vision to see communities come to faith in Christ. But vision without resource is mere wishful thinking.
In Acts 2, the Holy Spirit gave believers great vision AND prompted them to generously release significant resource for the fulfilment of vision. And thus the church grew.
So this season in our church calendar is about vision and resource and expansion… but mostly it’s about healthy hearts. A healthy heart is a giving heart.
Thank you for prayerfully considering what you and your family can do in this season. As, together, we make a heartfelt response, I’m believing to see the goodness of God poured out in people’s lives like never before.
