RECOGNIZE. REFLECT. RESPOND. SHARELIFE.
We are asked to be joyful givers. To give not only of our time, treasure and our talents, but to share all of the gifts that God has given us. We need to Recognize that we are here only for a short time as God’s caretakers, trustees and managers and He invites us to Reflect on how to share sacrificially with those in need. A gift to ShareLife enables us to Respond to those less fortunate, allowing us to say “I am privileged to share God’s gifts with you.”
