Like those who witnessed Jesus feeding the five
thousand, members of the Northern New Brunswick Regional Ministry have
experienced a miracle of abundance. The four separate congregations were each
struggling in their own way until they came together to grow as one. Through Presbyterians Sharing, these partners in
ministry are now sharing their gifts in ways that enhance, inspire, and build
their communities. One of the congregations with established gifts in youth
ministry recently sent a youth team to another ministry in the region to help
them run a Vacation Bible School. What started out as a kind gesture ended up
inspiring new leadership and sparking a whole new children’s ministry where
there was none before. This is just one example of how these congregations,
through gifts to Presbyterians Sharing,
are growing together to share God’s love.
SHARING: A miracle of abundance
