Does it cost to worship at New City Fellowship?
It can cost quite a bit. Some have poured their time, talent and treasure into this ministry for over 35 years. People of all different backgrounds, shapes and sizes came together to make this church a reality. As it was in Jesus’ day, “The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few.” Luke 10:2
Time is precious but it doesn’t change, how we use it does. How much of our time belongs to God? No one ever said on their deathbed, “I wish I would have spent more time at the office!”
Talents and treasures are things we hold on to. Some of us “humbly” claim to have no talent, others may “think of ourselves more highly than we ought,” but all of us have gifts and talents given by God. How much belongs to God? The world is overflowing with talented people who give no credit or glory to God. His kingdom doesn’t need superstars, only people who offer to God what He has given. New City is a place where God can use you, no matter how small you feel your contribution is.
Treasures are things we hold dear. We think of them as monetary value, but treasures are greater than money. Money is important, it costs to operate a church, but our greatest treasure is in human form. Our life belongs to God. Our children belong to God. Does Jesus really call us to give up our lives? “Where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.”
