The "Chest of Joash"

I am humbled by God's precious gifts to our church "Homecoming Day" this January 22, 2012. We set a goal to raise $30,000.00 "Homecoming Day" to pay toward our debt retirement. The last Wednesday in December 2011 we sat a chest on the table in our vestibule. This was our "Chest of Joash" displaying our hope in Jesus to meet our needs. The first few weeks we collected around $4,500.00 in the "Chest of Joash" and then "Homecoming" God showed up and gave us $31,000.00 plus. The total offering through Homecoming was $35,673.25! We have one more week to collect gifts through the "Chest of Joash". We are praying we can reach a total of $40,000.00 by the week end. Praise God from Whom all blessings flow! We are working toward getting a lower interest rate at First Reliance Bank and paying them hopefully $40,000.00 toward the debt retirement this month.

Thanks to a great church family that gives when it is needed. I'm so blessed to be your pastor. I love you much!
