The Living Faith congregation was recently given The Wilfred Challenge! After preaching on the parable of the talents (Matthew 25:14-30) the congregation was challenged to use their “talents”* to create more “talents” for the kingdom of God. We conducted a reverse offering – everyone was given $5 with the challenge to turn that $5 into more. The response has been amazing! People are creating hand-crocheted scarves, homemade jams, a shoe-shining service, paintings, photography, homemade rice pudding, carrot cake, soap, pies…the list goes on – all to support the work of Christ through this congregation.
We invite you to join The Wilfred Challenge yourself! Use your talent to create more talent for Christ!
*note of explanation: the word “talent” was used in the New Testament to signify a large sum of money. We like the play on words and are finding ways to use our God-given talents (crocheting, baking, photography, etc.) to create talents (money!) to support the ministries at Living Faith.
