On the way into church last Sunday, everyone received a penny. Then together we looked at the story of the lost coin. At the end of the service we invited members who made a commitment to reach out to others, to signify that by putting their penny in the offering
basket. We received 134 pennies! If each of those pennies represent a person we care about, and will reach out to, that $1.34 offering may be the biggest offering we've ever received!

Today (Thursday) One of our members shared an encouraging story that we wanted to pass along to you. This member has been giving to Growing in Faith. But recently made a commitment to increase their giving for the last twelve months of our three year project. After making the commitment, they received a review at work, and as a result they were given a monthly raise that matches the increase in their Growing in Faith giving. They mentioned that this was more than a coincidence!
It’s encouraging to hear real life stories of God at work in the life of our members!
If you have a story to share, let us know at email@example.com

Last Sunday, we had a member of our church come up after the service and ask a question. This member found it difficult to remember to bring their giving to church on Sunday. They pay their bills online and wanted to know if they could give directly to the church via their bank. The answer is…..yes! You can set up your giving just like any other account you pay using your bank's online bill pay. Now you won’t have to worry that you forgot your checkbook or if you miss a service, your giving is already set up!

The amount we need to pay the bills - $50,297
The difference – an excess of $288 that went to ministry.
The giving for the month of March was $50,585. This allowed us to not only pay the bills, but allowed us to fund some of our ministries. Thanks to everyone who gives to God at New Life.
