Thank you for your radical generosity!
“But who am I, and who are my people, that we should be able to give as generously as this? Everything comes from you, and we have given you only what comes from your hand.”
– 1 Chronicles 29:14
Joyful Christmas to all of you!
Each year as we come to the Diaconate’s Annual Mercy Fund Special Offering, which we just held on November 23, we are amazed at the way God moves his people in our congregation “to give as generously as this.” The Diaconate Mercy Fund enables our deaconesses and deacons to meet the practical needs of our congregants. And as Christmas nears and the difficulties and struggles of those in need are magnified we are extremely grateful to God for your lavish gifts.
Please know that we consider you our ministry partners. Because of your ongoing faithful prayer and financial support, we’ve been able to provide holistic care to nearly 500 individuals and families within our church community, and we’ve provided $516,000 for everything from rent, food, utilities and counseling to program and ministry costs as of the end of October, 2014.
If you missed the Diaconate Special Offering and would still like to contribute to the Mercy Fund, please visit redeemer.com/mercygift to make your gift. It’s not too late to give. We accept donations throughout the year.
Your radical generosity reflects God’s radical generosity to us when he gave up his only son as a substitution for us. During this season of pondering upon God’s amazing gift to us, may you experience his unending mercy and grace.
