No paid people=more money 4 others

The cool thing about being in a small church with no paid ministers is that we don't have any restrictions as to what we contribute our money towards. We didn't have any massive discussion over tithing, giving our money to God/church/people or anything like that, we just decided that as we're Christians, and as Christians we're called to help and serve those less fortunate than ourselves, so we're gonna sponsor a child from Africa.

Shouldn't be too hard to do with a few of us contributing, and we will need to have some more decent discussion about how we use our money, but its a great start I reckon. I just love the simplicity of it all. There's nothing new or emerging about sponsoring children-it's just a simple thing we can do to help.

Hey that's awesome!
My youth group sponsored a child, It's really awesome- that feeling of pure generosity.

I like the idea of a group that doesn't have "directed money".
Simple but flavorsome!
keep it up guys
