Lessons from April Faith Day 2009 (by Stephen Simpson)

We are praising the Lord for what He did yesterday at our April Faith Day. Over $90,000 was added to the building fund!! When you add the General Fund giving and Faith’s 100 giving, well over $100,000 was given in the offering plates yesterday. Praise the Lord!

Here’s a breakdown of the $90,000 that was donated for the building fund:

  • Over $39,000 was pledged money.
  • Over $50,000 of new money was donated. There were two $5,000 gifts and two $3,000 gifts. The rest (over $34,000) was given through many, many checks of various amounts.

What can we learn from this?

  • There was widespread participation in our April Faith Day. 324 checks were deposited in the bank today. God did not provide through one or two large checks. He used hundreds of people to accomplish his purposes.
  • God’s people are extremely generous. Even though times are tough and there is a lot of economic uncertainty, God’s people still gave.

To God be the glory, great things He has done!
