This past Walk to the Manger Sunday, a little boy, early elementary age, brought a dollar to the manger. It was his dollar, one that he had earned, that he wanted to give so that presents could be bought for school kids who otherwise might not have anything under the Christmas tree. It was a small gift that certainly won’t purchase a complete present. But it was a huge heart that filled the room with God’s presence. And a few of those dollars put together will put a toy under the tree.
Small gifts add up and they are crucial to the ministry of Aldersgate Church.
It’s not about the amount of the gift, it’s about the size of the heart. As we approach the end of this year, would you be willing to give from your heart?
Thank you for your generosity!
Lead Pastor, Ryan Smallwood
The Apostle Paul teaches us there is joy in everything - no matter what. Paul painfully endured all sorts of trials, opposition, and persecution -as demonstrated by the fact that he wrote Philippians from a jail cell. But he always looked forward with hope not based on circumstances or outcomes but rather on the joy that comes from God’s faithfulness in his life and he teaches you and I how to do the same – no matter what!watch sermons
