I Am Your Church Budget - Anonymous
Families are launched in marriage,
Persons are baptized,
The young are trained in Christian character.
I provide a Church School and youth activities for your children.
I provide music to enrich your worship, and
Preaching services to help you live more nobly.
I heat and cool your Church building and
Keep it in repair for your comfort and use.
I do your custodial work.
I help train ministers in the seminaries, and
I provide assistance to those who retired after years of faithful service
To God through the Church.
It is through me that the sick find spiritual strength,
The troubled and discouraged are steadied.
I go out into the wide world, preaching the Gospel in every language.
I carry the Word to people of every race, color, and clan.
I am your budget. Believe in me; support me, that I may carry on in your name.
With your help, I make possible all of these services.
As the budget, I am you at work.
But I do need your help. I do need your support.
Without you to under gird me, I am helpless.
You are my foundation, my supporting walls.
I am your money, your prayers, your concern—translated into action.
I can do only what you, through your giving, make it possible for me to do.
