Our annual Miracle Offering will be held on December 3rd. Every year we hear stories of the miracles God does in so many people’s lives. I want to encourage you to get the date on your calendar so you can start praying about what God wants you to give this year. You can get in on the blessing! Your giving makes such a difference for our church and we can’t do it without you.
God clearly promises to bless us when we are generous. He blesses our work, our relationships, our health, our finances, and every part of our life. Deuteronomy 15:10 “Give freely and spontaneously. Don't have a stingy heart. The way you handle matters like this triggers God’s blessing in EVERYTHING you do, in ALL your work and your ventures.” (MES)
What is the Miracle Offering?
If you are new to Avalon you may not have heard about the Miracle Offering. It is a special offering that is over and above your regular giving. We ask everyone to bring his or her best offering of the year. Giving a special gift expresses our love and thankfulness, stretches our faith, and positions us to be blessed. I hope that you will pray and ask God to bless you in an area where you need it most. It may be a lost loved one you are praying for, or a new job, or a health issue, or a broken relationship, or your marriage. Whatever miracle you need make sure to sow this seed in faith and ask God to bless it. People have told stories in the past of how God saved a family member, provided a promotion, gave them children, blessed them financially, or answered an urgent prayer.
The Miracle Offering positions our church to grow and unleashes ministry. Over the next few months I will cast the vision for our future and talk about a plan for this year’s offering. I am very excited about where God is taking us!
I am asking every person at Avalon Church to give in the Miracle Offering as an expression of love to God this year. We are better together. When everyone does his or her part, we accomplish BIG THINGS for God. I can’t wait to see what God does through us this year!
