As a church, we are inviting the Back Mountain, the Wyoming Valley, and the world into fellowship with us, because our Fellowship is with the Father, with his Son, Jesus Christ, and with the Holy Spirit of God.
For us to be prepared to receive those the Lord brings to us, it will require resources. It takes people resources, financial resources, and physical resources to lovingly welcome and receive people into fellowship with us – and God has provided a way for those resources to be met: through the generous giving of his people.
As we prepare to open our new worship center in 2020 and to ‘make room’ for others, may we also commit to giving as the Lord requires. Imagine what God could do through a church that is equally sacrificing to minister the gospel to the Back Mountain, the Wyoming Valley, and the world. We give to demonstrate that God is on the throne of our entire lives; we will revolve our lifestyle around giving to his kingdom work.
May this message be a reminder to all of us at Fellowship of our individual commitment to participate and excel in this grace of giving.
