Our Response to God’s Love

Everything about us belongs to God. When we give of our time, talent, and treasure, for the sake of others, God rejoices. Our generosity is an expression of our gratitude to God. When we give, we grow in our faith and trust in God’s abundance. Thank you for your generous gifts!
