Jesus said “Where your treasure is, there your heart will be also” (Matthew 6:21). If we become generous with our money, God promises our heart will follow. By giving to Wainfleet Church you are part of reaching people who want to get to know Jesus, reaching out with compassion those in need, and making possible the programs to help each person in our congregation (from babies to seniors) grow in their relationship with the Lord.
