As we journey together in faith, I am reminded of the promise found in Philippians 4:19 (NKJV): “And my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.” This assurance is the cornerstone of our belief, affirming that our God is faithful to provide abundantly for His children.

On June 30th, our church family will gather in prayerful unity to present a special financial offering, extending beyond our regular tithe. This Expansion Offering holds significant importance as we direct our hearts towards three essential areas:

Our Home

Our Backyard

Our World

We invite you to join us in this endeavor, stepping out in faith to witness the continued expansion of God’s plan and purpose. Regardless of the capacity in which you are able to contribute, whether large or small, know that your partnership with us is invaluable in making a tangible difference.

Together, let us embrace the call to stewardship and generosity, trusting in the provision of our loving Father as we advance His kingdom here on earth.

The most important decision you or your family will make about this Miracle Offering will be your own giving commitment.

Here are some steps that people/families have used in the past to decide their contribution.

Give yourself time to hear from God. The more time your give to consider your commitment, the more God will build your faith.

God is more interested in your trust in Him than the amount you commit to give. “Jesus, show me how to give in a way that stretches and builds my faith more than ever before.” The more you sincerely pray this, the more God will show you how you could give more than you first thought. If you’re married, pray together with your spouse.

Obviously, everyone in our church family doesn’t have the ability to give the same amount. God doesn’t expect that. But God does want us to make a genuine sacrifice for Him, which will be different for each of us. If my gift is not a sacrifice, then it doesn’t require any faith. David said, “ I will not sacrifice to the Lord an offering that cost me nothing” 2 Samuel 24:24

If you have children, involve them, It’s an opportunity to teach them generosity and faith. Read these Bible promises and instructions: Proverbs 3:9-10, Proverbs 11:24-25,1 Corinthians 16:1-2,2 Corinthians 8:1-12,2 Corinthians 9:6-12, Matthew 6:19-20.

When I give based on REASON, I simply look at how much I have, figure out a ‘reasonable’ amount to give, and then I commit to give it. This is the most common way people give. It’s an act of unselfishness, but it requires no faith, and no sacrifice, so there’s no possibility for a miracle. Reason simply asks, “What can I afford to give?” But there is an even better way to give. When I give based on REVELATION, I pray, “Lord, what do you want to give through me?” This is the kind of giving that requires faith. The Bible says, “without faith it is impossible to please God” Hebrews 11:6. That’s why God honoured the people of Macedonia: “They gave not only what they could afford, they gave even more than they could afford” (2 Corinthians 7:3). How do you do that? Only by faith! You give more than you can afford because you are trusting God, in faith, to keep His promises. God has more promises in the Bible about generosity than about any other topic. Here is one: 2 Corinthians 9:7-8 says, “God loves it when we give cheerfully, so he then provides us with everything we need, and even gives us more than we need, so we can keep on being even more generous!”

Pray this over your giving commitment:

Father, this is a big step for us. We’re asking you to stretch our faith, strengthen our faith, and deepen our faith through this commitment to be generous. We realize that everything we have comes from you. So we make this commitment for four reasons. First, to express our gratitude for all you’ve provided for us in the past. Second, to show our desire for you to be first in our lives right now. Third, to demonstrate our faith in your promises to provide for us in the future as we honour you. And finally, to show our support for our church family in making a difference for eternity. Thank you for this opportunity to grow in trusting you and thank you for our church family. We pray this campaign will be a great success.In Jesus’ name. Amen!
