Others' Offering

This Wednesday, we will be taking up our Others' Offering. Every year we are privileged to be able to receive this offering and help those in our church family who have a need. With this offering we are able to help widows, single mothers, and other families in our church who have a need during the Christmas season. We do this for several reasons.

     1.  We Care About One Another

Acts 2:44-45 says, "And all that believed were together, and had all things common; And sold their possessions and goods, and parted them to all men, as every man had need." 

Here we find an infant church and many young believers. As we examine the passage, we find that even though many of these believers were new Christians, they had a special bond with one another. In fact, their bond was so strong that they sold their own possessions and gave to others in need.

     2.  Because We Care, We Act

In James 2, believers are challenged to show their faith through their works! 

"If a brother or sister be naked, and destitute of daily food, And one of you say unto them, Depart in peace, be ye warmed and filled; notwithstanding ye give them not those things which are needful to the body; what doth it profit? Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone."

Because we are concerned about one another, we help. In other words, we back up our concerns with our actions. Please pray about what God would have you give to be a blessing to others in our Calvary family.
