Sunday was our second Sunday in our series on moving from Membership to Discipleship.  Disciples give sacrificially.  I put a challenge out there to the congregation inviting people to double their offering for the month of October to pick up a friend who cannot give as much right now because of the government shut downs and resulting lay offs and furloughs.  So far, three individuals or families have done this!  Thank you so much!  I was asked by someone today how we know it is a sacrificial gift.  I think the best way to gauge that is this:  If you need to rely on God to help prioritize your life, then you are giving sacrificially. 

We give because we have a need to give.  It is a spiritual discipline that reminds us that we truly are dependent on a God who provides for us.  Thanks for all you do on behalf of Fallston Church.
