Thanks to everyone who faithfully supports our church. The giving for the month of May was $33,324. The minimum amount we need to pay the bills is $42,907. This means we had a shortfall of $9,583. As a result we will carry a “minus” into the next month, please pray for God’s provision for our church.

National Day of Prayer

Spiritual Stimulus Project

“The check is in the mail” At least it will be soon. Starting this May, the government is sending out checks to taxpayers to stimulate our economy. The hope is that people will spend it and give a boost to our economy.

Many people are already planning on spending the rebates on flat screens, vacations, to catch up on bills, or pay down credit cards.

We would like to suggest one additional use. Use part of the money to lift high the name of Jesus and stimulate the spiritual condition of our community.

Here’s is what we’re suggesting. When you receive your check from Uncle Sam, take the first 10% of the amount you receive and use it for the Kingdom of God.

Maybe you know someone in need, or a local Christian organization you can support. If you are not personally aware of any specific needs, you can join with others and pool your money through the church.

If you choose to use it via the church, we will use the money received in the following three ways.

- Help people in need in our community – we will be doing this by supporting an organization called God’s Kitchen that cares for those in need in Corona. God’s Kitchen is located in downtown Corona and helps those who have fallen on hard times.

- Help people in need in our own church family – we have families in our own church who can use a helping hand. We will use a portion of the money to care for those who are part of the New Life family.

- Reach out to our neighbors in Corona Hills – We’re going to use part of any money received to do a outreach into our community to invite people to church, specifically, sending out a second mailer.

Whether you do it on your own, or through the church, consider using a portion of your rebate to share Jesus and stimulate the spiritual “economy” in our community.
