I happily give my time, talent and treasure to my church, Vienna Presbyterian in Northern Virginia. Five years ago, when I was unemployed and almost lost my home, I attended their job support group and was hired by them part-time as a childcare provider. They helped me a couple of times with paying my mortgage. I am a widow and the men of my church enjoy cleaning my yard and cutting my grass at no charge. I am an African-American woman and my church is predominantly white. They make me feel welcome and give me much love. They give a lot to the local community and in poor countries. We welcome the homeless and give them shelter during the winter. We send missionaries to Cuba and Haiti and help people to learn skills and rebuild their communities. The teens love to raise money and give food and clothing to the local immigrants. We meet with local churches to discuss racial reconciliation and how the races can come together in unity. We have crop walks to raise money for the hungry. It is a church that practices love for all people no matter what race, religion, economic background or sexual orientation. I am happy to give to my church in many ways. They are a blessing to me and I am a blessing to them. Thank you.
