Use the following Scriptures and reflections to jumpstart sermons related to each special offering.
Share the goodness of life with those who hurt.
“Whoever has two shirts must share with the one who has none, and whoever has food must do the same.” – Luke 3:11b, CEB
It’s easy to give food to our church’s pantry or to share a spare coat with someone who has none. But how can we go an extra mile – to make a genuine sacrifice to help a neighbor in need – beyond today’s special offering? That’s what keeps our faith alive!
