WHY I GIVE

Posie Mansfield

"I’ve been a member of Christ Church for most of my 68 years. As a young girl, I may not have been able to articulate why Christ Church was where I wanted to worship, but as the years have gone by, it’s become clear that this is where I belong. I’ve seen the highest highs and the lowest lows, and my Christ Church family has been with me through it all.


My toughest test of faith came in 2010, when my husband died suddenly, and I lost my leg a month later to an infection. I looked to the Lord for strength and comfort, and I found it in my children and in my church family. Since then, my faith has grown, and I’ve moved forward in my spiritual journey.


Serving God in His church means more than just showing up on Sundays. It also means contributing to the ministries and missions of the church. By giving to the church, I am affirming my faith and meeting one of my responsibilities as a Christian. I see the good work we do, and am aware that good intentions aren’t going to get things done. I am so very thankful for all my blessings, and by giving to the church I can pass it on. I really can’t think of any better way to say thanks to my church and to the Lord."
