Church Offers Year-End Offering Opportunity

by | 24 December, 2010 | 0 comments

“Being a part of this church has changed my life! I am in a very difficult financial place right now so finding an extra $20 is hard. I do, however, have these rings to give. Thank you, I have been able to make it through the darkest time because every Sunday you are all here for me.”

Inspired by this note, the team at 2|42 Community Church (Howell, MI) created a special year-end offering opportunity””“The Original Christmas Gift.” Just as the wise men gave gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh to Jesus, members were encouraged to bring their gold (in the form of unwanted jewelry) the past two Sundays. 2|42 will sell the gold and all proceeds will go toward end-of-year giving.
