Thank you for choosing the GIVING Button.
We tend to think of this Button as a place to give our tithes and offerings, but giving (stewardship) is about so much more than that.
God is steadfast. The sun comes up every morning, and sets every evening as the earth rotates on its axis.
The robins know when to fly south, and when to return to find their meals in our front and back yards.
The daffodils and the crocuses know exactly when to peek above the ground.
This is just some of the evidence that God is the Creator of everything … and everyone! And He is the faithful steward of all!
Stewardship lies at the core of our faith … for God so loves us that He has given us hundreds of promises as evidence of His care for us. He proves that we can trust Him every time He keeps His promises.
Stewardship is at the core of the Great Commandment … Loving God with all our heart, mind, soul and strength, and our neighbour as ourself.
This Great Commandment is lived out through the use of:
Our Spiritual Gifts;
Our Natural Abilities;
Our Material Possessions; and,
The care we take of our bodies … of our minds … of our mental and emotional health so that we’re actually able to understand what it means to love our neighbour as ourself … and … have the health and strength to be able to do it.
God has given us so much. He continues to care for us through all that we are facing. He’s the Good Shepherd. He is the faithful Steward.
As we minister here in Barrie, Ontario, we are mindful of the need to use our time to serve others … to use our Spiritual Gifts and natural abilities to bless others … to share some of our material possessions to make certain that no one is in need … to make certain our church is able to meet its financial obligations … to eat what nourishes us … move in ways that strengthen us … do things that protect our mental and emotional health … to trust God to meet our needs in every situation.
The Bible says God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.
(2 Timothy 1:7)
As we think about Jesus, we remember Him high and lifted up as He exchanged His life for ours.
We understand the time God took to create us, to surround us with trees and flowers, the sun, the moon, the stars.
We recognize the Spiritual Gifts He’s given to us to make the world a better place … the talents He has bestowed to make a place for peace.
We feel the love He pressed deep into our hearts so that we would know … without a doubt … that God is our Creator, our Redeemer, our Saviour and our Friend.

But whether you are a member or not, we invite you to click on the Contact Button, and tell us how you would like to participate in ministry here.
And … we would love to hear the ways you are already serving in this community, or the community where you live.
May God make use … by His grace and mercy and for His glory … of all that we give. Let’s ask this in the mighty and holy and precious name of Jesus. Amen
