Look at your hand (left or right). What a wonder it is and can be. Metaphorically and biblically, the hand is power and strength. With your hand you can hold, write, gesture, eat, take a pledge, and some of us even use our hand when talking. But above all, with your hand you can offer to help.
Helping Hands Ministry offers a helping hand to those people with money burdens by paying gas, electric, water, rent or mortgage bills. At times, we have all felt financial burdens that restrict us, but many more people today are faced with tremendous monetary challenges.
The Helping Hands ministry truly needs your hand to offer cash or a check to help people in need. There is a small (but oh so big) wooden box in the narthex awaiting your donation.
As you enter the narthex, it is located to the left, around the corner from the wall of pastors. You can drop your donation into this box or in the collection baskets. Be sure to indicate on the check ‘HELPING HANDS’ or if you put your cash in an envelope, write ‘HELPING HANDS’.
Any amount your heart tells you to give will be deeply appreciated and sorely needed. Look at your hand – will it be a Helping Hand?
