As we have regularly mentioned in the past years, we often receive “two or more months worth” of offerings during December as members assess their financial situation and determine where they are at in their offering plans for the year. Some are also able to factor in end of the year income and bonuses. We emphasize that our “first fruit offerings” take place every week and every month of the year, but we also recognize that the final month gives us the opportunity to take time to reflect on our response – and also to prepare for the year ahead. We are very grateful for the generous offerings our members provide. God be with you as you make your end of the year gifts for our gospel ministry at Christ the Lord and beyond in our shared ministries.
