The Story of Our "Faithful Ones"
You will notice each Sunday that there is a generous out-pouring of $1 bills in the offering plate as it passes through your hands. These are our "Faithful Ones"!
Several generations ago, we brought our offering to worship on a weekly basis and placed it in the plate during the time of offering our gifts to God. Today, our financial and banking worlds have shifted dramatically, and many "write a check a month" or have other ways of contributing to the church. So, we encourage all of those attending worship each Sunday to reclaim our worshipful habits of yesterday, and put something in the offering plate as it passes…even a $1 bill.
It becomes symbolic of that "one check a month" we write, it sets a great example for our children as they join in this discipline, and you will discover the blessing of responding with a tangible positive act of giving during each service of worship as we respond to God's grace given to us in Christ our Lord.
