Jesus had another great birthday. Sharon United Methodist Church gave a total of $53,000 to the 2013 Christmas Eve offering, which will be split evenly between Justice Ministries and New Story Church! The leaders of both ministries were blown away when I called to tell them. We are making a difference in the fight against human trafficking, domestic violence, poverty, homelessness, substance abuse, and spiritual brokenness.
Your generosity is amazing. The Christmas Eve offering has grown from a couple of thousand in 2011 to $35,000 in 2012 to 2013’s miracle gift. All of this has been given above and beyond our regular giving that supports the church’s ongoing ministries. I am both proud and humbled to be the pastor of such a faithful congregation! Thank you.
