claim it, if indeed it’s God’s
will. It can house an after-school ministry/daycare anda school where young peoplecan be educated naturallyand spiritually in the sameplace. Further, it should beour desire to be able to pur-chase other propertiesaround us in order to offeradditional services to ourcommunity.I want to remind us we arecalled to this community for agreater work.

 As we are currently not wor-shiping in our facility (3014Meadowbridge Road), it iscritical that we do everythingthis within our means to con-
tinue the “good work” we’ve
begun: Our building must berestored and renovated forgreater work.It is equally importanttoincrease our

The Immeasurable Investment
As we prepare to supply more effective ministry and heed the encouragement of 
Jesus who stated, “Greater works will you do in my name”, it is important to
know why we give to the Lord, invest in the work of the church, and sow seed toprepare for a future harvest. Let us reinforce our commitment to give throughthis scriptural declaration from 2 Corinthians 9:6-8. (Paraphrased)
What is the biblical PRINCIPLE FOR GIVING?
Whoever sows sparingly will reap sparingly, andwhoever sows generously will reap generously.
How much should we give?
Each of us should give what we’ve decided in our heart
to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for Godloves a cheerful giver.
What is the result of our generous giving?
We believe, when we give generously, God is able tobless us abundantly, so that in all things at all times,having all that we need, we will abound in every goodwork.
Study to show thyself approved unto God, aworkman thatneed not to beashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.(2 Timothy 2:15)
 WORD AT THE STREET
 
...He who suppliesseed to the sower and bread for food willalso supply and increase your store of seed and will enlargethe harvest of your righteousness. You willbe enriched in every way so that you canbe generous on every 
occasion…
 (2 Cor. 9:10-11)
