Christmas Joy Offering

“The perfect gift”

For those of us who gather together in Advent expectation, we know that the only perfect gift ever given was the one we received in Jesus Christ – a perfect gift from a gracious God. Although we cannot give the perfect gift, we can give generously to support our past, present and future leaders knowing that “every generous act of giving . . . . is from above.”
