He gives power to the faint, and strengthens the powerless. Even youths will faint and be weary, and the young will fall exhausted; but those who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength, they shall mount up with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint. Isaiah 40:29-31

LOUISE TILLER “I have always known to give. My parents and grandparents have set wonderful examples of giving their talents, possessions, hearts and money to the church so I follow in their example. We give because the Lord has given us everything.”
LEWIS WHITE “My father once said ‘You cannot outgive the Lord. The more you give the Lord, the more blessings you will receive,’ and I have found that to be the case in my life. Everything we have was given to us by the good Lord so it’s our responsibility to give back.”
“It made me feel good to give away my money to other people to help [during Vacation Bible School] just like Mommy and Daddy donate their money to the church.”
PAT TATHAM “When I think of stewardship, I think of my mother’s red wallet. My mother tithed. It was not something talked about, but it was something that I learned by example. My mother’s tithing was an example that taught us how important it was to give back to God in appreciation for what he had done for us.”
CHRISTOPHER KEITH “As much inner joy and happiness that I get from First Presbyterian Church, to give back and to allow someone else to have that opportunity is what makes the difference for me.”
