Udobo Pre-School Christmas Eve Offering:
As has been our tradition, we will be donating our entire Christmas offering to the Udobo Pre-School in Durban, South Africa to benefit the children in honor of the birth of Christ. We would encourage you to begin saving up to make a generous offering again this year. While there are certainly ways that we could spend the money for our own needs at Faith UMC (or our own households), God has been so good to us and we can afford to be generous to the littlest and least in the world. So, give what you can and let’s see what God will do to multiply it like he did with the fish and loaves (Matthew 14:15-21).
