West End United Methodist Church

Giving Together

Speakers:Carol Cavin-Dillon
Topics:Giving, Sunday service

This is the third in our five-week sermon series on the vows we make to support the church by “our prayers, presence, gifts, service, and witness,” and today’s theme is “gifts.”  The reading is from Acts 4, describing the early Christians in Jerusalem as a community where all was shared and no person considered possessions as their own.  The question is whether that is a call for us to do the same and consider that everything belongs to everyone.  But maybe it is a call for us to remember that everything we have is a gift, and that, like those early Christians, we need to provide for others such that the needs of everyone are met.  The focus is on the community of believers intent on making sure everyone is cared for, and our giving together is for that very goal.   (NOTE: The video begins with the Children’s Moment, but once it starts you can scroll back to the beginning of the service if you want.  The entire service is videoed.)


  • Acts :4:32-37
