New Covenant is a giving congregation. During this calendar year we have given over $8,600.00 to Church of God missionaries. That amount is over ten percent of our total receipts for the year and does not include the portion of tithes set aside by the COG General Assembly. A week and a half ago we had a love feast fund raiser for a Bible College in Ghana, Africa and raised several hundred dollars for the students. A few days ago we got a notice that one of our missionaries was to short on funds to come home for Christmas. One of our deacons, Pat Wells, hastily put together a beans and cornbread lunch and bake sale for today. We raised $300.00.
We have a loving and giving congregation. No one is wealthy. All are sacrificial and I am thankful.
