What needs change in your community? Is it those who are termed ‘food insecure’? Perhaps it would be increased needs in a homeless shelter or an emerging need for outreach to veterans. Whatever may need change in your community can be addressed with generosity.
Here’s how one church in our conference addressed an identified need. Church members were challenged to set aside their daily change for three months. Each week the change was turned in for the special ‘Change the community’ offering. At the end of the three months, church leaders were pleasantly surprised to find they had amassed $25,000 from the weekly change offering!
Next time you look at the coins in your pocket or billfold, ask yourself: What could use some change in my community? Let the generosity of your church be a force for change.
