A new guide includes 10 strategies for nurturing a spirit of generosity in your congregation. The ideas offered will both help connect people more deeply with the ministries of the local and global church and spark new initiatives that reflect gratitude and generosity for the glory of God.

• are part of something sacred,

•  are part of a faith tradition that brings healing and wholeness through our global connection,

 •  are part of the body of Christ that is feeding the hungry, healing the sick, loving the lonely.
