So, my church is experiencing financial trouble. Usually, our church building is occupied by the Little Lighthouse people who let us use the building on Sundays, because they technically own the place. But during this time, they have let it go and now my church needs someone to keep up the building. They were having a tiny bit of trouble paying bills anyway, but now people are making even less money in the congregation so they have less to give. Which means more trouble paying bills. Luckily they have savings, but those savings are dwindling fast. No one is buying the building. The disease is still here. So far, things are so bad that two people who are usually paid to preach and play organ, have offered to stop being paid and instead “work as volunteers”. So, things aren’t looking great. We’re trying to have faith God with give us what we need, and I do believe that, but I promised to my church when I joined as a full member that I would help the church in any way possible. But I really don’t know how! I have no money, I don’t have a job, my parents are doing everything they can, we aren’t even going to church (we’re watching at home), and I feel very bad that I don’t seem to be keeping my promise! I take promises and vows and stuff very seriously, because I like people trusting me. I love my church, and the people in the church, but I can’t do a single blessed thing.
