WHY I GIVE

Kathy & Ted Farnham


1 Chronicles 29:14
But who am I, and who are my people, that we should be able to give as generously as this? Everything comes from you, and we have given you only what comes from your hand.

Since we started attending Christ Church of Hamilton & Wenham a few years ago, we have felt warmly welcomed and included in the many aspects of Christ Church’s life. We have been particularly moved by the beautiful design of the church buildings, stained glass, and thoughtful spaces. The weekly preaching, adult education, and various small groups reveal the caring mission of the congregation.

There is evidence everywhere of parishioners faithfully serving as different parts of the body of Christ with the various outreach and “in reach” groups to meet the needs of the congregation and far beyond. Jesus Christ is revealed as the cornerstone of this community in the ways that people show love to one another. Our financial contributions and participation are a very natural response of gratitude and joy for the abundant blessings in our lives and to be a part of this vibrant community.
