Birthday Gift for Jesus: From “Red” to “Black”

Getting ready for Christmas means thinking through the ways that we can show our love and appreciation for family friends by giving them a thoughtful and appropriate Christmas gift.  That’s what makes Christmas special.
But whose birthday is it anyway?  Have you considered showing your love and appreciation for Jesus and his family by giving him a birthday gift through our church?
Our November and Year-To-Date (YTD) finance reports (see below) show that we’re in the “red” (deficit spending) for the month and for the year.  Why not consider a special offering to Jesus — above and beyond your tithe — to move us as a church from “red” to “black” (surplus giving).
November -4,220.00
YTD        -23,934.00
For us to move from “red” to “black” would require that we receive a total of approximately 42,400 Euros in December alone.  Humanly speaking … and considering our giving habits … it seems impossible.  But with God, all things are possible.
Prayerfully consider how you might give Jesus a birthday gift by bringing a special offering during December.
