During our last fund drive one donor said this: "I love hymns ... If you asked for money, it means you need it! Please keep the work going. And please, accept my widow's mite. God bless you."

She was right. We only ask for money twice a year, and we do so because we need it.

The Care the Eagle Gives Her Young

Representative Text

1 The care the eagle gives her young, safe in her lofty nest,
is like the tender love of God for us made manifest.

2 As when the time to venture comes, she stirs them out to flight,
so we are pressed to boldly try, to strive for daring height.

3 And if we flutter helplessly, as fledgling eagles fall,
beneath us lift God's mighty wings to bear us, one and all.
