The Joy of Giving

A generous person will prosper whoever refreshes others will be refreshed Proverbs 11:25

We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give. Winston Churchill

In today’s world it’s easy to get caught up in the focus and drive for making a better living and maximizing what we get.  But as I get older, I am discovering the truth in Churchill’s quote.  I’m finding that participating in acts of giving is incredibly fulfilling.  During last year’s Serve Weekend, I was part of a crew that repaired and re-stained a deck for an elderly gentleman.  I quickly forgot the sunburn I got that day, but I’ll never forget the new friends I made, the gentleman’s gratitude, and fellowship we all had in glorifying God through service.

Freely giving of our time, our talents, and our treasures can be a very fulfilling and rewarding experience.

Our Time

Greet a stranger, lend an ear, be a shoulder for someone in need.

Our Talents

Think about your passion and help others in our community.  The opportunities for service are virtually endless.  Be a coach, be a mentor, be a volunteer.

Our Treasures

Financial giving, donations to a cause, food shelf, etc.
