As God is a generous God, we desire to be a generous community.
Each year, the Christmas season calls us to freshly consider the wisdom of Jesus when He taught us that it is better to give than to receive. Not only did Jesus teach this transcendent counter-cultural truth, but He lived it to the uttermost. Jesus went before us, both modeling this reality and empowering us to follow in His footsteps.
Now 2000 years later, we respond by giving generously during this Advent season and leaning into our core identity of Joy and Generosity in Mission. This year our giving will be focused on the needs of the people of Jacob’s Well and our surrounding communities. We have an opportunity, through our diaconate, to serve those needs by helping folks with rent, providing groceries, paying bills, relieving the heavy burden of debt and simply caring for those in need.
For six consecutive years, the Jacob’s Well community has responded to the generosity of God by being generous to others during the Advent season. This is a great opportunity for us to show how the work of God, through Jesus Christ, leads us to live differently and seek to serve others.
