Command those who are rich in this present world not to be arrogant nor to put their hope in wealth, which is so uncertain, but to put their hope in God, who richly provides us with everything for our enjoyment. Command them to do good, to be rich in good deeds, and to be generous and willing to share. In this way they will lay up treasure for themselves as a firm foundation for the coming age, so that they may take hold of the life that is truly life.


-1 Timothy 6:17-19

Stewardship Update: A SMILE, A REMINDER AND A THANK YOU – March 2018

March 2018

Dear Community Church Members and Supporters,

The end of March is the close of the financial year for our church family, and the Stewardship Committee would like to take this opportunity to share their cautious optimism and deliver a reminder.

Given that we have had increased costs this year, with planting our daughter church Hope For All, and with record rental prices here in one of the world’s most costly cities, we have seen an increase in shortfall compared with the same period last year. God is good. We are therefore cautiously optimistic of a positive financial picture at the end of this month.

But of course we all have a role to play in making this happen. Reminder: If you normally tithe at the end of the financial year, or review your finances and top-up your contribution at this time, don’t forget that March 31 is approaching. Resolve this in good time and save the Stewardship Committee’s fingernails!  Our Treasurer will issue receipts for tax purposes by the end of April.

And here’s the thank-you. God has been extra good to us, and our family members have been extra generous in returning a portion of the blessings He gives!  

As Christians, money is not an aim in itself, but a means to enable us to grow God’s kingdom, to visit the prisoners, to comfort the sick, and to give care to those who need it, from the orphans to the elderly.  

Serving and building the kingdom is always a privilege!
