In II Corinthians 8, the apostle Paul commended the Macedonian churches for their “rich generosity.” He was very proud of the giving they had done. I find myself in exactly the same position, humbled and grateful for the wonderful giving you have done over and above regular giving recently.
We are now able to report to you that the total giving for the Marion and Ruth Gray 5K Walk/Run was $6,814.87. We are so grateful to be able to divide those funds between the three designated missions. Thank you so much.
Last Thursday I had the opportunity to participate in the dedication of one of the two Habitat for Humanity houses we built in our parking lot in May. You gave the walls to this home, and as E.J. Thomas, the Executive Director of Habitat for Humanity said, “We would not be here today were it not for the generosity of Madison Christian Church.” Here is a picture of the finished product:
On top of all of that, you have also been generous in contributing to hurricane relief. As of today, the total you have given to folks in Texas and Florida, through International Disaster Emergency Services (IDES) is $4,161. Again, I am blown away by your gracious, extreme generosity.
Thank you for being such AMAZING givers!
