This past Walk to the Manger Sunday, a little boy, early elementary age, brought a dollar to the manger. It was his dollar, one that he had earned, that he wanted to give so that presents could be bought for school kids who otherwise might not have anything under the Christmas tree. It was a small gift that certainly won’t purchase a complete present. But it was a huge heart that filled the room with God’s presence. And a few of those dollars put together will put a toy under the tree.
Small gifts add up and they are crucial to the ministry of Aldersgate Church.
It’s not about the amount of the gift, it’s about the size of the heart. As we approach the end of this year, would you be willing to give from your heart?
Thank you for your generosity!
Lead Pastor, Ryan Smallwood
If you've never fully committed your life to Jesus, you can do that right now. There are some key things to believe:
Your sin separates you from God. For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. Romans 3:23
The cross demonstrated God's love for you. But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Romans 5:8
You can receive the gift of eternal life through Jesus. For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 6:23
Make Jesus the Lord of your life and believe. If you declare with your mouth, "Jesus is Lord," and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. Romans 10:9
Lord Jesus, I know that I am a sinner and need Your forgiveness. I believe that You died on the cross for my sins and then rose from the dead. I want to turn from my sin and confess you as the Lord and Savior of my life. In Jesus' name I pray, Amen.
