For the May Joseph offering we will be assisting our Youth in serving dinner to the homeless at a Sacramento park. There are two ways you can give this month. We will collect cash (please note Joseph Offering on check or envelope) or gift cards to Safeway and Costco –or — you can bring the ingredients for a recipe. The recipes will be available on Sunday at the Joseph Offering table.
In Genesis 41, Joseph instructs Pharoah to store up items during a season of prosperity so that when a season of famine and drought happened, there would be resources for people. Pharoah thought this was a good idea and listened to his wise council. In light of the tougher economic reality, each month we will take a specific Joseph Offering of items. Each month, we will let you know what those items are and will collect them on the first Sunday of each month.
