Material Gifts

“Every man shall give as he is able, according to the blessing of the Lord your God that he has given you.” Deuteronomy 16:17

There are several ways to give materially to support the ministries of Westminster.  Every quarter we have a food drive for Good Samaritan Ministries.  Annually we participate in their giving of Thanksgiving baskets to those in the Johnson City area who qualify.  Each Christmas we pack and give shoeboxes to Operation Christmas Child.  People sometimes give a memorial gift in honor of a friend or loved one.  Each Spring we have a speaker from The Gideon’s International remind us of the importance of giving away God’s Word.  After we celebrate the Lord’s Supper, we give to support our Deacons’ Fund used for helping those in our family who have special needs.  Each Sunday we give to support the work of the local church with our tithes.  To support the work of our missionaries, we use the Faith Promise method of support raising.  As you can see, there are many ways to give materially and support the Church in its mission and work.
