During this season of Lent, the theme of the 'Giving Methodist' has been publicised at the FMC pulpit for many weeks. I thank God that some of you have already given but many may need a little nudge. Last year, our Tamil brothers gave together generously of the little they have. We discussed this at the EWC and felt we should make a last concerted effort to give as the English congregation. Take that step now to 'Honour the LORD with thy substance, and with the firstfruits of all thine increase: So shall thy barns be filled with plenty, and thy presses shall burst out with new wine.' Prov 3:9,10 We pray that as we give generously, God will bless FMC, fill our pews and cause us to burst forth with the Holy Spirit! 'But this I say, He which soweth sparingly shall reap also sparingly; and he which soweth bountifully shall reap also bountifully. Every man according as he purposeth in his heart, so let him give; not grudgingly, or of necessity: for God loveth a cheerful giver.' 2 Cor 9:6,7. It does not matter how much you give. Give as the Lord prompts you. May you enjoy God's love as you give generously!
The Giving Methodist is an initiative to gather and galvanise Methodists to perform acts of love. It takes place during the season of Lent from 6 March to 13 April 2019, a period of reflection for Christians - because giving is part of a life that exemplifies Christ.
The Giving Methodist is spearheaded by the Methodist Church in Singapore, CAC, TRAC and ETAC, and supported by the Social Concerns Arm of the Methodist Church, Methodist Welfare Services.
