One way we can express our love for God is to make an offering, especially appropriate at Christmas, when God shows us the great love of the gift of Jesus. Through our offerings we help make the presence of Jesus known, especially here in North Carolina.
The Christmas offering is used for our regional ministries only, and the bulk of support of our North Carolina Region comes from the Christmas offering. At Bethany we have felt directly our region’s presence recently as our regional minister guided us in our Faithful Planning process, and began working to help as we search for a new minister. The offerings of sister congregations, along with our own, makes those and many other services available throughout North Carolina.
Please give generously through the envelopes that will be provided in worship Dec. 16and 23.
