A Special Gift

On a recent Sunday, an anonymous worshiper left a special gift in the offering plate at Vine Street. It was a small package, and written on the wrapping paper was a brief message, indicating that this gift was to support our ministry for the homeless and the hungry.
We opened the gift, and it was a Liberty $50 1 oz. gold coin. It was almost as if one of the magi from the east had arrived early to leave his gift at the manger.
This coin has a current value of $1,125. Coin shops have offered $1070, but we thought there might be a member or a friend who would like to purchase this coin and help us achieve a better return for the homeless and the hungry in our community.

The current high bid for the coin is $5,000, yes, five thousand.

A big thank you to the anonymous donor who dropped this early birthday gift for Jesus in the offering plate. A big thank you to all those who have entered bids to own a coin with a great story, and support our ministry with the homeless and the hungry in our community. Talk about a gift that keeps giving!

The bidding will close on Monday, December 28, at noon CST. Bids may be entered by calling our treasurer at 615-665-0677 or by completing this form
Once the coin has been sold, we will tell its story on our website. It will be up to the new owner to decide whether that story will include their name and the purchase amount.
