Welcome to Becomning Closer! 



In the fall of 2005 Eastside Christian Church embarked upon an unusual, major capital giving campaign.  All Adult Bible Fellowships were required to teach the identical lessons.  The lessons that are given here are rather different than the prescribed lessons.  The topics, and the titles (alas) are retained, but the lessons were developed independently (and are therefore not copyrighted by someone else).  The first lesson (right from the script) was delivered by another teacher, as your humble servant was out of town for his son's wedding.  This lesson is omitted.  The rest cover the topics indicated; should you have need of a lesson or two for a major capital giving campaign, please feel free to use these.

1 Chronicles 28:1-29:21 The Temple -  Giving for the Temple of Solomon.
Acts 4:32-37 The Apostles -  An exploration of the early church and its practice of giving to the poor.
2 Corinthians 8, 9 The Corinthian Offering -  An examination of the offering by the Corinthians as a model for our church capital fund campaign.
