In addition to our monthly food drive, we will be holding a special love offering for Sparrow’s Nest this Sunday. This organization is a clearinghouse to over 40 churches and provides help to those with extraordinary needs due to illness, death, fire, or other circumstances.
As a result of Hurricane Matthew, the pantry shelves at Sparrow’s Nest are very low. They desperately need our help! Please take the time to either buy some some extra canned or dried goods, or write a check made out either to ‘The Grace Place Church” or to ‘Sparrow’s Nest” and bring this Sunday!!
2 Corinthians 9:6-9 (NIV)
6 Remember this: Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously. 7 Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. 8 And God is able to bless you abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work. 9 As it is written:
“They have freely scattered their gifts to the poor;
their righteousness endures forever.”
