man should give what he has decided in his heart to give, not reluctantly or
under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.
II Corinthians 9:7
"I do not believe we can settle how much we ought to give. I'm afraid the only safe way is to give more than we can spare." C.S. Lewis

Won't you please help?
The theme this year—“Discipleship: A Journey of Grace,” based on Titus 2:11-13—is a wonderful reminder that Jesus’ public ministry was all about connecting and caring for people in need. On each day of his journey, the compassion of Jesus was felt by someone somewhere.
We know that we should live to love because true freedom in Christ enables us to do so by the power of the Spirit in our life. The outworking of God’s grace will be seen most often during difficult times. God’s grace is being manifested in our lives as we gladly seek to help others carry their burdens.
The AFC Offering 2015 reminds us that when grace happens we receive not a nice compliment from God but a new heart. We receive a transformed life that becomes the hands, the feet and the prophetic voice of Jesus Christ in our communities and as we connect with people every day.
How do we see the grace of Jesus Christ at work in our community? We are encouraged by this year’s theme to come alongside people as they journey through life. I am asking you to join me in giving generously to this year’s AFC Offering 2015 and help us to reach our goal in support of home mission that is making a difference.
