‘Generosity in All Places’ is the theme of the year during our quadrennium of ‘Generosity in All Seasons.’ Today is the day to live into this theme! To counter Black Friday and Cyber Monday, let us put our treasures where our hearts are. Let’s be people who care less about things, and more about the heart, soul and need of our neighbors as Jesus commanded.
We have many options for where to give, and many organizations have matching funds to increase the value of your gift. Please pray about where and how God is calling you to give generously. Below you will find some ministries that would benefit and greatly appreciate your support.
