The first "love offering" in the New Testament is described in 2 Corinthians 8:1-5. The Macedonian Christian's out of their poverty gave generously & joyfully. What I love about this story is that the Macedonian Christians understood the implications of the gospel. They got it - the Gospel compels us to show radical acts of compassion towards one another.
Because the gospel calls us to radical acts of compassion, the EGBC pastoral team has launched a COVID-19 Relief Fund. All that is given to the COVID-19 Relief Fund will be used to care for those who have fallen on hard times due to the Coronavirus pandemic. If you'd like to give to the COVID-19 Relief Fund, you can do so here. You can also send checks to the EGBC office (3101 Dwight Rd, Elk Grove, CA 95758).
Finally, if you or someone you know is experiencing financial hardship on account of COVID-19, please do not hesitate to reach out to one of the pastors, deacons, community group leaders, or the EGBC office. It is our privilege and joy to help one another, so please allow the body of Christ to care for you!
