Ask God for creative ways to give an initial gift! Consider giving from savings, garage sales, an extra part-time job or giving your tax refund. Also consider reducing your expenses or postponing a major purchase as a sacrifice to God.
Pray about what you and your family can give- over and above your tithe- for the next three years. Your weekly, bi-weekly or monthly gifts accrue over time, often resulting in a larger gift than you thought possible.
