Most people have heard about

“paying it forward.” Do you know

you can also pay it forward by

passing along possessions you no

longer use or need? Possible items

could include appliances, furniture,

musical equipment, clothing, sports

equipment or electronics. Ask if the

items you may have available are

actually needed and wanted by the

pastor’s family. Also, be sure they

are in good condition and will not

need costly repairs.

Note: Please be prepared to graciously

allow your pastor to decline

anything that you oer. Also note that

most items mentioned here are not

normally tax-deductible to the giver,

but are to be given out of gratefulness

to God for what he has given to you to

Bless Your Pastor.
