All the believers were one in heart and mind. No one claimed that any of his possessions was his own, but they shared everything they had . . . For from time to time those who owned lands or houses sold them, brought the money from the sales and put it at the apostles' feet, and it was distributed to anyone as he had need" Acts 4:32; 34
The Bible teaches us to respect, take care of, and honor God's money. Doing so creates the financial freedom that allows us to be generous to those around us in need. At The Creek, we strive to be good stewards of what God has given us and want to live out the biblical mandate of caring for our neighbors (1 Tim 6:18). Out of this commitment, the Generous Ministry has been formed to care for those in our community who are experiencing trouble securing the necessities of life- things such as food, shelter, and utilities.
