FOLLOWING HIM HOME
The Widow's Mite
Jesus sat down opposite the place where the offerings were put and watched the crowd putting their money into the temple treasury. Many rich people threw in large amounts. But a poor widow came and put in two very small copper coins, worth only a fraction of a penny. Calling his disciples to him, Jesus said, "I tell you the truth, this poor widow has put more into the treasury than all the others. They all gave out of their wealth, but she, out of her poverty, put in everything — all she had to live on" (Mark 12:41–43).
Common in the Christian churches throughout the world, mite boxes have been used to collect regular contributions of "mites" — offerings above and beyond the support given to congregations, to be used for special projects, as well as physical reminders to share, pray, and thank the Lord for his providence.
In following this unique tradition, CHSRC has created mite-cups to inspire prayer, encourage sharing, and fund our Following Him Home Capital Campaign with spare change.
We would love for you and your family to take a mite-cup home and begin filling it up with loose change. The mite-cup will also be a reminder to pray for us and share about the Following Him Home Capital Campaign.
One penny at a time can make all the difference!
Stop in today to get your mite-cup and remember to pray for CHSRC, the home we are trusting God has planned for us and for the entire homeschool community.
