BE RICH

"Command those who are rich in this present world not to be arrogant nor to put their hope in wealth, which is so uncertain, but to put their hope in God, who richly provides us with everything for our enjoyment.  Command them to do good, to BE RICH in good deeds, and to be generous and willing to share."


1 Timothy 6:17-18


Be Rich is a 4-week-long conversation on generosity culminating in a week long campaign of love on our community. Focusing on the essential needs of shelter, clothing and food, we will go into our community to love on them in practical and tangible ways.  See below for the plan, get involved by nominating neighbors & friends and also by giving of your time, energy, resources and gifts to love our community this Holiday season.
