This holiday season we are trying to be be creative in the ways we attempt to bless our community. We are spreading our giving across three fronts:
1. Each household will be given a determined amount of $ to use to bless someone in their life or neighborhood. The only pre-requisite for participation is telling the story of how you used the funds.
2. Friends of The Bridge: Planting churches, and pastoring churches is hard life work. In an attempt to bless those in our circle who are fighting the good fight we are sending a few chosen pastors and their wives on a nice evening on us.
3. Kiva.org: We are throwing our hat into the micro-finance arena. Having done some research on interest free micro-lending, and observed/conversed regarding some of the work done by a church we admire, we are going to join in what we believe is an effective way to give a fishing pole instead of a fish.
I am excited about what God can do through this opportunity. We are hoping this mustard seed will sprout into a beautiful tree pointing to the grace of our God.
